This plugin works in Garageband or Logic, could someone please try using it? It's free and a small file.


Thank you :)

First time I've done anything like this; but it all seems to have gone smoothly on my 16/512 M1 MacBook Air:

Oooh, am I right in thinking these plugins would be x86 (ie running through Rosetta?) That’s very promising for audio/music people!

The main app that does all the downloading is definitely Kind: Application (Intel)

I'm not sure how to tell if any of the rest of it is Intel. Where would I find the actual plugin?

AU plugin files live in the /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components folder.

Thanks for checking this! (I’m not the OP but I’m making a guess that his interest is similar to mine here...)

I can't quite figure out if this LABS.component is intel or not. I included the Info.plist in case that gives any clues.

It's not native.. Running a Logic session with BBCSO instruments, I can see a "AUHostingCompatibilityService (Logic Pro)" process running, which seems to be bridging intel plugins to arm64.

The M1 MacBook Air is performing better in logic than my previous 15" MBP from 2016 though, so I'm very happy -- even without an optimised build, it works, and it's faster than what I had previously

I just got a new M1 Mac mini and tried to download BBSCO Core. I was running Discover fine on my old machine and was going to take a step up on the new one but the AU and VST apps seem to be missing. The Spitfire Folder is in my user folder and the samples all seem to be there but I can't seem to locate the actual instruments. I'm guessing your download placed everything where it was supposed to be? I've contacted Spitfire but haven't heard back yet.

Unfortunately, I had the same problem

I can’t remember exactly what fixed it, but I know that after messing around with options in the Spitfire Audio app, it showed up and worked..

I had the same problem on my Intel based Mac when first installing too
