I can't find VMR in Logic on my M1 Mac

While our plugins are not yet supported on ARM based Mac computers (more info here), we've found in some cases, even opening Logic Pro with Rosetta translation, Virtual Mix Rack will appear "successfully validated", but is absent from the Audio Units list.

If this is the case with your system, close Logic Pro, and follow the steps below:

On Logic Pro 10.6.3 (or later)

  • If you're using Logic Pro 10.6.3 open the Plugin Manager (Logic Pro → Plugin Manager) and click Full Audio Unit Reset:

If you're on Logic Pro 10.6.2 or earlier you'll need to manually delete the following two files

Delete the AU Cache folder

  • The AudioUnitCache folder can be found here:

    Note: All of your AU plugins will be rescanned when Logic reopens

Delete Info Helper plist file

  • The InfoHelper.plist file can be found here:



⚠️Important⚠️: These locations are hidden by default. You will need to hold down the "Option" key on your keyboard within the Finder "Go" menu in order to access the User Library.
