I just recently purchased the Ms Pinky
VST and control vinyl package
but the VST won't show up in Ableton Live
, no matter what I do.
I have rescanned many times with no luck.
My OS is Mac OS X 10.8.2
My Live version is Live 8.3.4
I copied my PinkyVST.vst file to: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
(Macintosh HD Library)
・I am not keeping my plug-ins in any unconventional location. They are all in the default location.
・It is claimed to be Mac compatible. It is claimed to be Universal Binary.
・I try to use Audio Units whenever possible, but this developer only provides a VST.
・My other plugins all have AU versions as well, and they work fine. This is the first time I am required to use VST exclusively.
・If I double-click the .vst it it will launch Maxi-Patch_AO.app, but that doesn't help me at all for using inside of Live.My hardware specs are:
27-inch iMac (1st Gen, late 2009)
2.8GHz Intel Core i7 (4-core)
8GB RAM 1067 MHz DDR3
1TB HDD Storage

Turns out what I had to do to fix this is create a custom VST folder in a new location and point Live to it.
Strange that Live ignored it when it was in the default VST folder, but this workaround will do just fine.
