In your computer. What kind do you have?

I just installed the TC M30 and haven't been able to get to it with Peak on Mac 10.4.11...

(name of your HD containing the operating system, let's say Macintosh HD, for example) > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components

In some rare cases the AU plugs could also be installed in:

(User) > Library > Audio > Plug-Ins > Components

It may happen though that some applications do not see all the plugs installed.

Just make sure you're accessing the Library>Audio>Plugins>Components through the hard drive, and not through the user. If you click on the hard drive icon and go from there, you're good.

User>Library>Audio>Plugins>Components is an entirely different folder. With nearly a hundred or so plugins installed, I don't think ONE of them is in that folder.

The two path thing tripped me up for a while until I learned to make sure I knew which one I was looking at.

Speaking of which... I'm the only user on this system. Is there a way to just eliminate the whole user thing... condense everything down to one path automatically? I've got it all down now, so it's not a big thing, it's just totally unnecessary in my case.
