I’m ticked off

Xpand! 2 (Alesis V49 Hardware-Bundle Version) on macOS 10.14.3 not working

Hey guys,

I tried to install the included Xpand!2 plugin for macOS and read all related threads here and elsewhere without finding a solution for my problem.

I can't choose the AU-plugin in LogicPro X as synth in a software instrument channel strip. It doesn't even show.

Neither after first nor after second installation any plugin (neither AU nor VST) shows up in ~Library/Audio/Plugins/Components respectively ~Library/Audio/Plugins/VST.

System Specs are:

macOS Mojave 10.14.3

Modell-Id: iMac13,1
CPU-type: Intel Core i5
CPU-speed: 2,9 GHz
CPUs: 1
Cores: 4
L2-Cache (pro Kern): 256 KB
L3-Cache: 6 MB
RAM: 16 GB

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. 

    Please make sure that you have the latest version of Xpand!2 installed on your computer - CLICK HERE

    If none of your plugins are showing within Logic, this may be an issue with that software specifically. That being said,  would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling Logic if you haven't already done so. Are you able to get this plugin or any of your other plugins to show in another DAW?

  • Thanks for coming back to me.

    Alesis provides the 2.2.7 version, so i think it's the same you offer to download on your homepage.

    I got a bunch of plugins, Reaktor, Kontakt 5/6, Alchemy, iRig, T-Racks, all showing and working. So I assume Logic is not the issue...

    All of this plugins above also show in GargageBand and I can access all my NI Plugins via Komplete Kontrol as well.

  • Alright, let's have you try the following:

    Method 1: Run the AU Manager from within Logic Pro X.

    Method 2: Go to Macintosh HD/Users/Library/Caches and move the com.apple.audiounits.cache file to the trash and empty the trash bin. When you next restart Logic Pro it will do a fresh scan of any installed Audio Units and your plugin should now appear in the Audio  Units list in Logic Pro.

    Method 3: Go to Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components. If you can see your plugin in the list of Audio Units, select the file and move it to the Desktop. Restart the Mac and start Logic Pro, then shut down Logic Pro and move the Audio Units which were moved to the desktop back into the HD/Library/Audio/Plug-ins/Components folder. Restart Logic Pro and your plugin should now appear in the Audio Units list.

    Let me know how this goes!

  • Hey,

    I don’t know what sorcery this this is, but I got to use Logic again for long time today and xpand showed up after AUs were scanned.
    I didn’t try any of the suggested but had the recent macOS updates.

    I’d mark this as solved without being able to reproduce the solution. I’m sorry.
