Sometimes I love software. Sometimes I hate it.
Had an idea for a track today, well at least the basis of one. Excited I went to go and put it down, only to discover the plugin I was basing the idea off wasn't installed.
No problem - just install it. Oh, but it won't install - Logic won't scan it for some reason. No problem, there's an update. Just check for the update from the standalone app - nope, can't find it. So try and find it and download it, from the mostly-in-Japanese website. Install but notice it doesn't update the plug-in version number, so you can't really tell if you've done anything. Oh and it demands I install an OEM Studio One v2 version along side it, well out of date, that won't actually accept the serial number that came with it - text field too short. Download an update and it works.
Start up Logic - constantly scanning 2 audio units, every start up. No idea why. Decide to remove every plugin and go through a process of finding out what's causing it - turns out to be Ozone 8 (Elements). No problem, launch the iZotope Portal, which demands an update before it will work, which then cheerfully tells me that Ozone 8 Elements is installed - this despite the fact I trashed the audio unit. No option to reinstall.
Yeah, the mood has rather gone by now. Hope I can remember the idea next year, when I finally get this lot working.
Edit: first person to tell me how to get a working Piapro Studio plugin on Logic in High Sierra gets my eternal thanks.
