Postby Bullabs; Thu Mar 02, 2017 1:45 am Wow 2 demo version - no presets as plugin ?

Hi,
I've downloaded the demo version of Wow 2 (mac) I test it with GarageBand (as an audio unit plugin), it works but it won't shows any preset, is it a demo limitation ?

I ask the question because the standalone app shows a list of presets.

Hi Bullabs,

Presets should be in your documents folder. If not please just reinstall the latest installer again and verify that the preset folder exists in this folder afterwards:
/Users/YOURLOGINNAME (your home folder)/Documents/Sugar Bytes/WOW2/Presets

If it still doesn't work does your user account has admin rights? Maybe this would solve any problems.
Please make sure to install WOW2 on the user account you will really work with afterwards and that the path really exists on the correct user account.

Please also note that working with the latest Garageband needs a little and simple extra work. Many 3rd party plugin software suffer from this. The reason is GarageBand is now sandboxed and it puts strong security restrictions on any AudioUnit plug-in loaded into a session. But there's a workaround for this Garageband specific issue. Therefore please go to the plist file of WOW2 by entering ~/Library into the 'Go To Folder' menu.

When prompted, go to Preferences and select the com.sugar-bytes.WOW2.plist

Then copy (don't move!) this file into
~/Library/Containers/com.apple.garageband10/Data/Library/Preferences

Please note that since OSX 10.7.x this Preferences and Containers folder is a hidden folder.
So please doublecheck that you search in the correct path by entering ~/Library into the 'Go To Folder' menu
and not only searching in Library since these are two different paths and it's very important to also enter the ~/ signs.

This should fix it.

Sorry for the circumstances!

Best,
Nadine
