Hi bruckner7th, unfortunately I don't have an answer about your issue, what I can say about the DEMO mode it's limited to some keys that doesn't work and 20 minutes of functioning.
Anyway can I ask you instead how did you do to use Pianoteq into GarageBand ? I own GarageBand '11 and I'm finding issues, this is what I've done:
"Pianoteq 4 STAGE"comes with AU (.component) and VST file, I can find it on my iMac at the following path:
- /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/Pianoteq 4 STAGE.component
- /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Pianoteq 4 STAGE.VST
In my Audio Plug-Ins user's folder I can see nothing of them:
I added a new AU called TB_Isone.component into /Users/roberto/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components then I delete the file com.apple.audiounits.cachefrom the path /Users/roberto/Library/Caches and finally started GarageBand, it opens telling me to refresh the AudioUnit section (GarageBand is going to execute the scan of 25 Audio Unit installed! --> why 25 plugins ?)
If I try to add a new master effect from the list of "Effetti Audio Unit" I can see the following:
Then the TB_Isone Audio Unit is recognized by GarageBand and I can use it.
Unfortunately doing the same with Pianoteq 4 STAGE.component doesn't work (copying it from /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/ to /Users/roberto/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/ folder).
How could I do to solve this issue ?
Maybe you already solved your problem. I had exactly the same problem solved it, and I think the answer needs to be posted in this discussion:
In Garage Band double click on a track to get this menu on the right. If you've installed pianoteq, you should be able to choose the settings shown on the picture below.
Now, click on the picture of the orange ball with sound coming out from it just to the left of the pop-down menu. Now the pianoteq menu appears, and you should be able to use the entire libary of piano teq including all effects. Good luck
