Today let’s talk about all things plugins. Things like:
- Where the heck do your plugins live on your Mac?
- Is it possible to reorganize Logic’s plugin menu?
- Can you hide or remove plugins or entire categories?
- And what do you when a plugin won’t open in Logic?
Every time you click on the Audio FX section of a channel strip, you’re treated to a dropdown of plugin categories.
While wonderfully laid out, the plugin menu can be a bit cumbersome. Especially when you own tons and tons of plugins (but only use a fraction of them).
Given that it’s May here in the U.S., why not do some spring-cleaning of your plugin folder? Take a moment and rid your Mac’s Components folder of all those neglected plugins collecting digital dust.
You could also reorganize Logic’s plugin menu in a way that makes more sense to you:
- Hide or remove plugins you don’t use (but don’t want to delete)
- Create your own plugin categories with a shortlist of your favorite plugins
- Avoid diving into Audio Units > Manufacturer > and staring into the abyss of a million plugins (I’m looking at you Universal Audio…)
With Logic’s handy Plugin Manager you can focus more on creating, and less on menu-diving.
Plus: we’ll examine a few tactics you can use to sort out plugins that refuse to play well with Logic.
From restarting your Mac to Reseting and Rescanning plugins for validation. And even using some developer’s own apps for working out plugin license kinks.
