Sounds good but Logic Pro plugin is broken

This is not a system by system issue. This is simply broken. I really LOVE this product. I would pay for a premium version with proper Logic compatibility. The plugin just doesn't load most of the time and leaves ! marks on the effect. This means it's unreliable for recording, so I use Amplitube. But I do love this app and really hope they get some investment into it to fix these issues.

Developer Response ,

Hi ScribblyPixels, sorry that it works like this. The problem is partly on Apple's side (some bug in Core Audio) that prevents Audio Units to work properly in their apps, both LPX and GarageBand. It's not about our app, as we contacted several developers of other AU with the same problem. We already wrote Apple several times, but no result from their side by far. When they do something about this, we will be happy to update the app to fix the issue. Until then, all we're left to do is wait. Sad but true. Cheers!

Audio Units work!!!!

Fantastic app and now with working audio units the fun is multiplied many times over :) I find I get good results with the core audio I/O buffer size set to no less than 128 in Logic. So play around with this setting if things don’t sound quite right at first.

p.s. if you get a missing plugin error try Logic>Preferences>Plugin Manager and select ToneBridge Guitar Effects and reset and rescan selection

Does Not Work in Logic Pro X Properly

This app is amazing with really authentic sounds and i hate criticising as it’s free. However after an update suggesting it’s now available with Logic Pro X, It isn’t.

The app loads ok and can be used in Logic but upon saving and the re-opening a project the plugin is missing. If you then rescan, it just crashes Logic so unfortunatley it really can’t be used.

I hope they fix this as it’s a real shame not to be able to use such a great app. More testing required i think!
