Built AU plugin cannot be found in User's library plugin folder after build

Hi folks!

I am using the latest 5.3.1 juce. Using projucer to generate my project.

However, my built AU plugin (which automatically appeared in user’s au plugin folder ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components) cannot be shown by Logic Pro X.

But Logic can find and use my plugin if I manually copied the built plugin to the system’s library au folder. (/HD/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/)

Did I miss anything here?

Many thanks!

used auvaltool and it shows:

ERROR: Cannot get Component’s Name strings

That’s a quirk of High Sierra. The first time you build a plugin with a new au type triple you need to either reboot or move the folder out of the Components folder and back in again via the Finder.


Seems you got it fabian…
…did what you said and it shows itself…
