Topic: Kontakt 3 AU and Leopard

    Kontakt 3 AU and Leopard

    Just installed Kontakt 3 on my new Macbook and I'm not having any luck getting sequencer hosts to find the Audio Unit. I've reinstalled Kontakt, installed the 3.0.1 update, and still no luck. Logic 8, Sibelius 5, and even AULab are not finding the Audio Unit. There is a file called "Kontakt 3.component" in /Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components but nothing seems to be able to find it.

    Any advice? I've never had a problem like this before with other AU instruments

    A few other points that may help:

    1. Kontakt 3 works fine as a standalone
    2. Sibelius, which also supports VST can see, load, and use Kontakt 3 as a VST
    3. Logic 8 Audio Unit Manager does not see Kontakt 3 so it's not that the AU is failing the test - it just doesn't show up
    4. Kontakt Player 2 AU is working just fine with GPO in Logic and Sibelius.
    5. I followed more or less the same installation method on my main machine (Dual G5 with Tiger) and everything is working great there.

    For others, I was able to resolve this problem by updating the timestamp on the .component file.

    In Terminal.app just type:

    $ touch /Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components/Kontakt\3 .component

    Next, I started Logic and the AU Test ran for Kontakt, passed, and now I can load Kontakt 3.

    Hope that helps somebody else!
