Loading Arcade in Logic Pro X

This article demonstrates how to load Arcade in Logic Pro X:

  1. Open up your Logic project
  2. Click the icon above the track headers
  3. Select Software Instrument as the track type
  4. Click the instrument slot, then navigate down to AU Instruments > Output > Arcade
  5. Click Create



If you're unable to load Arcade in Logic Pro X the first step we recommend is restarting your computer.

If restarting your computer doesn't solve the issue, we recommend rescanning your plugins. To automatically rescan all installed plug-ins, please perform a Full Audio Unit Reset:

  1. Choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Plug-In Manager.
  2. Click Full Audio Unit Reset.
  3. Close Logic Pro, then reopen it. Logic Pro rescans all installed Audio Units plug-ins.
  4. Check Logic Pro or MainStage to see if the plug-in is available.

The above option is not available on older versions of Logic.  If you do not have the option available in your plug-in manager, we can accomplish the same thing manually:

  1. In the Finder, hold down Option and choose Go > Library in the top menu bar.
  2. In the Finder window, go to Library/Caches/AudioUnitCache.
  3. Move the files from AudioUnitCache folder to the Desktop
  4. Restart the computer, then open Logic Pro X. All of your installed Audio Units plug-ins will be rescanned.
