OK, many thanks - that confirmed that “disabled” means “missing” in my context.
I checked in my plugins folder and DB-33 is not installed. If I accept the
button to go to the Avid Market Place to look at plugs that are not installed,
I find that I can buy the plug. Is it really the case that I need to do an
additional purchase? I’d have thought that any effects/instruments being used
by the stock templates would be included in the purchase price? I feel like I’m
missing something here:)
