Logic X and NI FM8 Synth Problem


Recommended Posts

In separating the problem, I realized that FM8 as a standalone works fine. However, FM8 coupled with Logic X makes it so you are unable to highlight and execute new sounds from the drop down menu.


Aside from FM8, this similar problem is occurring in Absynth. Standalone is fine for selecting sounds; inside Logic X, there is an issue and you can't even highlight the sound to execute it.


Anyone having the same problem(s)? Perhaps this is an OS X Yosemite issue? I have version 10.10.2.

During the upgrades of either Yosemite or Logic the FM8 database was corrupted or the path was changed. Though the presets were visible, the path was no longer correct so they wouldn't launch.


Find the correct path for your presets (usually Library / Application Support / Native Instruments / FM8 / Sounds) and rebuild the database in FM8 File / Options / Database.
