when i launch this app, it shows me the folder and icons for my plug-ins, but wont let me select any of them(massive, fm8, absynth). personally, i think this app is bunk.
A good extra AU/VST Host to help with live performance
This app is a great way to get a single midi keyboard playing a single instrument from a single pre -determined midi channel. Depending on the the instrument plug-in, it can also often allow quick patch changes on that instrument plug-in with the track pad on the Macbook Pro.It is now my go to app for several older plug-ins that are not showing up in Logic Pro X! Not to mention that it also allows access to VST plug-in instruments that Logic ProX, GarageBand 10 & MainStage don’t. If you have upgraded to any of the new versions of Apple music software you will find Audio Plug-in player will run several of the Plug-ins that no longer show up in the new Apple music Apps. For live performance, it is another piece of the puzzle for a musician with multiple keyboards attempting to have them routed to several different instrument plug-is so he is able to play several different instruments at once or jump to a new keyboard and new sound .Are there problems, inconsistencies, crashes etc. ? Yes, but in my experience it is the older, unsupported, or crowd sourced plug-ins that are the culprits. I give it 5 stars because for $3 I got to keep several plug-ins I rely on running when I perform live.
Not really so good.
The interface doesn’t allow you to play the entire 88 note scale.The clock doesn’t send consistently to any app that has it’s own sequencer or arp.I would like a refund :/
Decent App. Needs index.
This app is nice to get a plugin up and running without launching my DAW when I want to fool around. One very helpful feature request would be a list of all current plugins, instead of me locating each one I want to launch.
Loading certain plugins will crash this program. I don't know why this has not been fixed yet. I keep waiting for an update.
