Won’t show as a AU in Logic X

Just want to let you guys know that there is NO component (AU) showing in the Components folder after the update and after reinstalling the software. I tried looking in Application Support under both Logic and GarageBand, AND in both the hard drive and home folders to see if it was there and the AU (component) is nonexistent in either. What is the component titled? If I knew I could do a search and at least see if it’s installed in another location. Anyway.. I really hope to see this software as a AU.. It was actually the first thing I thought when I used it! :) :) I also wanted to add this product has HUGE potential as an AU. Not only can you find certain tones your looking to use in your OWN songs… it’s also a great tool to reamp existing tracks! You guys have a $$$ maker here imho. Hope ya can resolve the issue soon… I am DYING to try this in a existing project I’m currently working on. Anyway.. Good luck! and I promise to give a full review when this issue is resolved. Peace!

Better than expected

First, this is free! You can examine the settings of each preset and make adjustments as you see fit. It’s interesting for gear heads to see the effects, amps and settings they chose to emulate whatever tone you are looking for. I use it with the iRig HD 2 via USB, and works great. I do have an Ultimate Guitar subscription, and together with this, I actually enjoy practicing and learning again. I’m very busy, and keep a guitar in my office to help me unwind when I need a mental break. This together with my U.G. subscription lets me get those 10 minute or so breaks in my day and have some fun. Very, very pleased. Thanks!

Does't work on a Mac! At all!

I've been trying to make this thing work for an hour instead of creating and enjoying music. And still nothing! Tried everything is said on their site but it seems to be a problem of Apple not recognizing developers of this app as important enough to try to help resolve this issue.

Every time after trying to use it on my Mac I get so frustrated I dont want to play anymore. I hate my guitar, I hate my playing skills I just dont wont to continue doing music. Which is of course opposite to what that I should feel. And I this feeling from experience with Tonebridge so many times I just don't know what to do. I got my love to playing guitar and not hating everything connected to it only after several weeks passes by!

Your app costed me so much mental health I couldn't regain. I am in deep pain and frustration.

Developer Response ,

Hi Chamelion, sorry for that! Did you try to run it as a standalone app or as a part of GarageBand/Logic Pro X? As a standalone, it should work well. Let us know via or via Twitter @tonebridgeapp
