After updating to 4.2.2 dev, plugin won't load in logic, trouble parsing plists persist


Looks like the Plugin is invisible to logic, no entry in the plugin manager. Auval shows this error

Update, my Plugin magically appeared again in Logic

To get rid of the trouble parsing plist-problem, i removed
the Plugin AU Main Type - Setting in Projucer, which was

Which kind of values did this form expect?

After rescanning the plugin now, auval creates an

FATAL ERROR: Initialize: result: -10868 <



It expects the four char codes for AudioUnit types, i.e. aufx, aumf, aupn, aumu, aufc, auou, augn, auol etc. If you leave it empty then the projucer will choose the correct four char code depending on if “Is a synth”, “Plugin wants midi input” etc is checked.


Also remember to always re-scan your plug-ins in Logic’s plug-in manager.


Thanks, yes it even was not visible in the plugin-manage (files was there and accessible) However, problem is gone now!
Could resolve the other issue “FATAL ERROR: Initialize: result: -10868” by unchecking “is Synth” checkbox
