Fl Studio Mac Initialization Failure

I’m seeing lot of people asking how to install VST plugins into FL Studio so here’s a short guide showing you how to do it. First of all, you need to have a folder for all your VST plugins somewhere in your hard drive (default is under C:Program Files). If you dont have one, create it. This shows you how i fixed waves loading issue in fl studio.please like, comment, share, and please please please subscribe to my channel.hope th. FL Studio ASIO has the advantage of being fully multi-client on most machines. This will allow you to hear the audio from FL Studio and other applications (such as YouTube, SoundCloud etc) at the same time. NOTE: On some systems you may need to select the actual Output using the drop-down menu if the Default output setting does not work.

ARCADE only works in 64-bit mode at the moment. Please make sure you're using the 64-bit version of your DAW as this is the one that our plugins are optimized for.

The following systems aren’t currently compatible with Arcade:

  • Cubase 8 (32-bit) (PC: VST, VST3).
  • Pro Tools 10
  • Ableton Live 9 (32-bit)
  • Logic Express (32-bit)
  • AKAI Hardware
  • iOS (iPad and/or iPhone)
  • Chromebook
  • Magix Music Maker
  • Mixcraft 7 (32-bit)

If you're running a 64-bit DAW, try re-scanning your plugins inside your DAW and see if you can locate ARCADE.

How To Re-Scan My Plugins:

Logic Pro:

  1. Open Logic Pro X > Preferences > Plug-In Manager.

Fl Studio Mac Initialization Failure

ARCADE doesn't support 32-bit systems on MacOS + PC, and it's likely the reason that you can't see ARCADE in Live 9.

Keyboard Initialization Failure Explained


Please try scanning your plugins and also make sure you're running a 64-bit version of Ableton Live, which may require an update. To determine if you're running a 64-bit application you can use the following steps:

  1. Type the following keyboard shortcut Command ⌘ + Space bar to launch Spotlight.
  2. Type System Information and hit Enter when it shows up.
  3. Scroll down to the Software section in System Information.
  4. Click Applications and wait for your applications to load.
  5. The column to the far right in the Applications table will give you a simple, 'Yes' or 'No' answer as to whether or not your app is 64-bit.
