Audio Unit Scan Doesn't Find Everything

March 18, 2008 | 9:18 pm

Can anyone help me with this? I am using Michael Norris’ au~ object. It seems to work fine except that it cannot locate all my audio unit plug-ins.

I have the full Logic Studio installed. The au~ object cannot find any of the plugins that are part of that package.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Are there any spaces in the plug in names? If there are, you need to
put quotes around the plug in name in the au~ object – eg

[au~ "Fat Filter"] rather than [au~ Fat Filter]

If that’s not it, are you able to find and load the plugins by using
the load command to au~ (can’t remember if it’s plug or open or
something else – it’ll be in the help file) and navigating to your Au
folder?
Are the Logic olugins installed in the regular Components folder? On
my machine it’s
Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins
or they might be in the equivalent folder in your User Account

If it’s none of that – try emailing Mike Norris; he’s really helpful.

You’re out of luck. Those are all built into Logic, so you can’t use
them from other packages. It’s really a pity.

Well shucks.

I thought the whole point of Apple making the Audio Units protocol was so that you could share plugins across difference applications, and now they have gone and buried their plugins where their own protocol cannot find them! Ugh.

I have tried just running audio from MSP to Logic via Soundflower, in orrder to use the Logic plugins that way, but I find that this is not stable. After a while, Logic blows up and loses all audio output. Not appropriate for on stage.

Thanks anyway,
Bob

You’d think so, wouldn’t you?

I really wish that the wider AU world could find them if Logic was
legally installed on a machine.

Totally with you – I would love to be able to use
their convolution reverb outside of Soundtrack Pro,
cheers
