FM8 and Logic Pro X Validation

Postby DanielBeach » Sat Jun 27, 2020 6:55 pm

Hi,

Sorry, I know this has been in various forums over the last year or so, but I've tried everything I can find anywhere, and no joy in fixing this.

All of my NI plugins work perfectly, except for FM8, which crashes and fails Logic's validation on startup. FM8 DOES work in standalone mode.

I've tried all the different methods including deleting various files and reinstalling, restarting, and rebuilding the FM8 database from within the standalone version.

I'm on 10.14.6 (Mojave), Logic Pro X 10.15, and the latest download of FM8.

Thanks,

Daniel

Does it still crash if you reset and rescan selection of FM8 in the plugin manager?

It looks like you are not alone.

One person found that the solution detailed here worked but rather than follow that exactly, read the whole thread to determine which XML files to delete.

If you've already done all that I'd recommend using Native Instruments support.

Thanks - I’ve seen that great but sadly no joy.

I’ll get on to NI.
