Question: Mellotron plugin not appearing in MainStage 3. Works in Logic. Any ideas?

Hi,


Logic Pro X uses the Mellotron plugin instrument, but it doesn't appear in MainStage. This is the only one that doesn't.


If I load a preset containing the plugin, it is disabled.


Any ideas?

Answer:
Answer:

The plug-in version of the Vintage Mellotron was introduced in Logic Pro X 10.4.

Unfortunately MainStage hasn't been updated since, hence the lack of instrument.


You can however use the Patch version instead.

Create a new Patch then select Instrument > Vintage Mellotron >, and the instrument you would want to use from the Patch Library.

Hi, thanks yes that makes sense, sort of. I assumed Mellotron was a plug-in (bundle) of which MainStage would see the same as Logic does, seems not. Anyways. Yes thank you that works. Using the EXS24 version of the same sound works fine. thanks 🙂

You're welcome Michael.

The separate instruments themselves are always part of the separate application bundle.

This is why Playback, Loopback, and AutoSampler isn't a part of Logic.

The downloadable content is however shared between the two as it resides outside of the bundle itself.
