You did the right thing and the Play plugin should be listed in the GarageBand "Audio Units Modules" list.
A few trouble shooting tips:
* re-install Play (latest software?)
* check the permissions of the Play.components file (your user should have read&write)
* If you have Logic (or another DAW), see if it shows up there
* log-in to a different user (to see if Preference files are corrupted)
* try to install a different AU plugin (http://www.greenoak.com/crystal/dwnld.html) to see if that shows up properly in GarageBand
Hope that helpsEdgar Rothermich

I am using Mountain Lion and PLAY works fine with it. If you were attempting to install from discs, please note that that software is most likely out of date and will fail. Just go to soundsonline.com, find the support page, and download the latest PLAY update. I believe it does require a mac with an intel processor though, so that may be your problem.
Hey, thanks a million for replying.
I was installing the Complete Composer's Collection, which arrives on a hard drive of its own. The PLAY authoriser installed, and I was able to register all of the components to my iLok, but the standalone PLAY program didn't appear anywhere, and I couldn't load it in Sibelius 7 or Pro Tools 10 (or Garageband).
The software was 2.1.2 (if I recall correctly), so I updated from soundsonline to (again IIRC) 3.0.4; it was yesterday I was doing this, so it was the latest version for sure.
The computer (new 15" MBP Retina) has an Intel processor.
I have sent a support form to soundsonline, hopefully they can help; interesting to note that PLAY is working for you though, as some sources I've read have said it's still in testing and not yet compatible with Mountain Lion.
If you have any more suggestions, please do let me know!
Having the same issues but none of the fixes above have allowed play to show up in Logic. Running latest logic version with osx 10.8.2 and latest Play software on 15' Retinal MacBook Pro.
The Play plugin shows up as an option to select in Logic under the I/O button, the plugin window FRAME opens and says "Play" at the bottom, but the window is empty/transparent when opened in Logic running in 64-bit, and black when running in 32-bit.
Could you review exactly what you did to get this sorted? I'd be so grateful.
For others who may find their way to this post in frustration:
Got a relatively quick response from EastWest (unexpected). Here is the step I was missing:
Update for Case #32... - "play plugin doesn't show up in logic 9"
first open play in standalone mode
not inside of logic
then go to settings / other
select a library title in the bottom box there
and press apply
open in host
