I just bought mainstage 2 from the app store via download.  I'm having a problem with the 'pop horns' folder.  If I choose one, it sounds like a sine wave, and then the 'pop horns' folder disappears altogether.


This problem has been noted before at https://discussions.apple.com/message/6395493#6395493, but they suggest scanning the install disks with a program called 'Pacifist' for the missing components.  Unfortunately, since I bought mainstage from the app store, there are no disks, so that won't work.


Any suggestions?

    Did you download and install all the additional content via the Mainstage menu?

    Loading the rest of the content helped a lot.  I got a couple of funky horn patches to come up just fine!


    I still have a problem with the 'studio horns' patch.  When I load it, I get the error:


    EXS24 instrument “Horn Section.exs”:

    Audio file “YT-BRASS TTS FA G3X01.aif” not found!


    And the patch does not work.


    I don't know if everyone has this problem or just me.

    I lost the file - mid-concert!  I was playing it and it just disappeared.  It looks like its loaded, the channel strip is there.  The one thing I have noticed is that the velocity changes, meaning it won't play the legato tones, but will play the "fall."


    Has anyone else had this issue?
