Apogee Plugins

Unable to apply Apogee FX Send mixer as Inputs to Cubase Group channels

When you created a Group channel in Cubase, then any FX Channels that exist will get automatically added as sends. The program does this to prevent feedback loops.

To fix, you have undo this by removing the new Send (select “No Bus”) from the Group channel.

Apogee FX Rack – Single Plug In Uninstall

Some users may be very annoyed by the Splash Screens when loading their DAW, asking to activate, if they only own some of the FX Rack Plug-Ins, but not all of them. You can remove the single Native versions of Plug-Ins you do not own, to limit the number of Splash Screens.

  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.component
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.vst
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > VST3 > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.vst3
  • Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > Avid > Audio > remove the single Plug In you don’t want to load, such as MEQ-5.aax

NOTE – If you want to keep using the DualPath DSP functions of Element/Ensemble Thunderbolt DO NOT remove the Apogee FX Rack.component/vst/vst3/aax. This is the Rack version of the Plug Ins. This Rack version is how the DualPath is able to work, by loading this single plug in on the unit’s hardware DSP based Insert slot. Thus while you can remove the Native individual plug ins, you cannot remove single plug ins within this Rack version. This does mean you will still potentially get a Splash Screen when loading your DAW. We understand this may be an annoyance to some, but was a requirement for this DSP functionality. Just click “Quit” on the Splash Screen when loading to bypass.
