I need help I am running Logic 9 and I have Waves plugins, Native Instruments Komplete 8 and a Virus Snow. When I open Logic now all my Waves plugins and Native Instruments soft synths have disappeared. Also when I plug my virus into my Macbook it doesn't get recognised. I have tried factory resetting and upgrading the firmware on the Virus. I haven't tried reinstalling the NI because it is massive 260GB or something. I haven't tried reinstalling Waves but the other stuff is more important. What do I do? Please help! I am running a Macbook Pro 10.8.2


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    Thank you for you suggestion Bessinnox but it didn't fix it. I have always been running Logic in 32 bit mode. I tried swapping to 64 and back to 32. It does the same thing on either.

    How did you come to the conclusion they've "disappeared"? Can you go Logic Pro>Preferences>Audio Units Manager and see what is there?

    Hey Eriksimon, when I click on Logic Pro>Preference>Audio Units Manager nothing happens. What should I be seeing? I've tried a few times and nothing happens.

    This window should happen:

    What was it you did before those plugins were "all gone"?

     

    You should check in two locations:

    Library/Audio/Plugins/Components

    and Users/'you'/Library/Audio/Plugins/Components

    The second can only be found (in Lion and Mountain Lion) via alt-clicking the Finders' Go menu and selecting 'Library'.

    If they are in not in either location, you have (somehow) managed to trash them, and you can do nothing but reinstall, unless they're still sitting in the trash, in which case you can simply drag 'm back to Library/Audio/Plugins/Components.

    I don't know if the AU manager does not appear if there are no plugins installed; but I would expect it to (and NOT just show an empty window). The fact that nothing happens I find strange.

    You should also try trashing your Logic preferences file (in Users/'you'/Library/Preferences, called com.apple.logic.pro.plist)
