Licensing problem

I bought MG2 and get the interrupt but there is NOT any way to apply the license at that point. I have the license. So I have paid for the software but am unable to use it. Please advise how to proceed!

There is no button to “Apply license” only to purchase or continue with interruptions or use the default piano. Not satisfactory!

Did you get that sorted out? This is what the interruption looks like on my MacBook. Don’t you get this popping up after a few minutes?

Thank you! this is very kind. I realised after some hours of trial and error that I was trying to license the version obtained from Apple’s App Store, which does not offer an APPLY LICENSE button. While I was able to use the Apple-obtained trial version to control instruments in Garageband (which is what I want to do) now, having successfully installed MidiGuitar2 and applied the license (using the button display you posted), I find that I cannot now fathom how to control Garageband instruments with the full version which has a different layout. Any pointers on that would be most welcome!

I always work with MIDI Guitar2 as standalone whenever I (have to) do something with garageband. Just open it as standalone (outside of GB) and the open whatever instrument you want to record in GB and press record.

A similar problem is also present in the MIDI GUITAR Mini AUv3 on M1 macs.

I just updated Ableton Live 11 to v11.2, which allows loading AUv3 plugins. The MG Mini plugin displays, loads and even works as expected but is time limited. I enter my email as requested and JO sends me a code but there’s no entry field for the received code.

Most interesting! :thinking: I haven’t tried the MINI since I switched to M1.

Where do the AUv3 plugins appear? I only have AUv2 plugins right now.

Standalone works, and i can silence the instrument MG2 is playing, but even using its mix control I find myself unable to silence the guitar audio in my headphone feed. Many thx for your help😀

That is usually an audio interface issue! There can be something like a direct monitoring vol control that is not fully up or down?

Just a thought – make sure you’re not running Live 11 under Rosetta 2.

There is no entry field for the code which is delivered from JO automatically upon entering registered email at shot 3.

Thanks man! I found that yesterday too, directly after having asked the question, but then forgot to add that info here. :no_mouth: I’ve posed the question to @jamo already, so lets see if there is enough of an interest in the Mini as an AUv3 to warrant any action toward a working license registration. Thanks for the help and the info! :pray: :handshake: :+1:

Is there any news with the license registration for MG2 mini? You said you asked @jamo back in october 22 - did he responded anything? I have just started to use MG2 mini and I have a license but no way to register it.

Hi Mihai!

I had to revisit that mail conversation to see what came out of that. I had forgotten all about it, sorry! What I found out was that indeed “there is only the CMD-C way to input the key” but that perhaps the latest MacOS update had made the software not allowing for the clipboard paste information anymore. The idea was to release a fixed version as soon as possible, but I believe the amount of work put in on MG3 has been affecting most such projects, putting them just further down on the to-do list… I can’t give you any promises or even prognosis, because I simply just don’t know at this time. Again, sorry about that!

Hi Leif!

Thank you so much for your answer! I have been having some crashes with MG2 (mbp 16 m1max, Logic pro with Rosetta off - I think it was from MG2, not sure though) and this is why I tried MG2 mini and it seems to have solved the crashing problem (and MAYBE it even tracks better). I will wait for MG3. Thank you again!
