How can I delete an instrument that keeps crashing LPX?

    It's called Ample Guitar M(artin) Lite by Ample Sound - I have searched & deleted everything I can find but it still shows up in the Audio Units manager and crashes the Aqua Tool :confused: I want to finally be completely rid of this troublemaker, and get it out of my AU list!

    Thanks in advance...

    Plug-ins are stored in your Mac Hard Drive>Library>Audio>Plug-Ins>Components folder.

    Quit Logic, then drag the offending plug-in from this location to your desktop or Trash.

    Restart Logic. It will no longer show up in the AU manager.

    Thanks, but I have removed everything that seems to be related to Ample Guitar M Lite & Ample Sound in the components Æ’ and every place else I know to look, and it still shows up in the au list and crashes the au tool. Since it is considered an 'instrument', is there other places I should look? Some of the names of the plugs in the component Æ’ are pretty nondescript - is it possible it is named something totally unrelated?

    Did you also look in the user Library>Audio>Plug-Ins>Components?

    The Plug-ins>Components folder has easy to identify plug in names. You'er not by chance looking in the Library>Components folder???

    Try the free AppCleaner.

    App Cleaner requires the App to clean the remaining stuff - *I have already deleted the app and it's folder*, but obviously some culprit remains to mess up my AU scan. I think I need to post this on some other boards - there's got to be a logical answer.

    You can try to trash the AU cache
    User/Library/Caches/com.apple.audiounits.cache

    Good luck.

    Thanks - Would trashing the AU cache make me lose all the presets I've programmed within my AU components?

    No.

    But it will rescan all of your plug-ins which may take a few minutes...

    Solved!

    The Solution: I was not aware that there are two different libraries in the Mac OS, and different components get stored in different libraries - once I looked in the other library, I found the culprit! :)
