I have read on the board here about this problem I’m posting about and I’ve attempted the resolutions given, but I still can’t get my Audacity to work. It used to work before I installed a certain plug in but I’m not sure which one is causing the problem, and to be honest, at this point I don’t care. The reason I say this is because I’m not going to be using the plugins through Audacity, I use Logic Pro 9 on the Mac and there’s no problems with any plugin.
Now one of the resolutions I read about was to go into preferences and disable the plugins, Simple enough, but the problem is, my Audacity doesn’t start at all! It gets to a certain stage, then say “Can’t get core function pointer” and closes.
So what I’m asking is, is there a way to disable the plugins entirely before the program starts?
Side note: I’m running Windows 7 via BootCamp and Audacity loads no problem. I figure it’s because it doesn’t scan my plugins that are installed on the mac.
I’m running OSX Lion - 10.7.4
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,
Thanks for getting back to me so quick. I tried the solution you suggested but it didn’t work because Audacity kept reading my main external plugins (/library/audio/plug-ins/) folder. HOWEVER, I copied my external plugins folder to my desktop and deleted them from their original place.
I then ran Audacity and it opened normally without the “Can’t get core function pointer” error! So I pretty much did the method you suggested except with my main audio plugin folder. I was then able to disable all Effects via preferences! Success!
