Audio Unit not detected in Live 11


I did a fresh installation of ChordJam, Riffer and PlayBeat 3 (no previous trial installs).
When I search for those plugins in Live 11 I can only find the PlayBeat Audio Unit. ChordJam and Riffer are only available as VST.
The Audio Units of ChordJam and Riffer seem to be installed though:

macmini:Components root# find .|grep -i riffer

macmini:Components root# find .|grep -i chordjam

macmini:Components root# pwd

I did a re-install of ChordJam and Riffer but sadly that didn’t solve the problem.
Platform is a Mac Mini M1 with macOS Monterey 12.4
What could it be?


Hello Roland,

Thanks for reaching out. That is the correct behaviour.
All AU plug-ins do not support a direct MIDI out. If you wish to route MIDI from a plug-in you need to use the VST or VST3 version instead.

See this article from the official Ableton help-desk:


Never knew that!
Thanks for the answer.
