Summary0009432: Eventide plugins AU/VST2 don't load and VST3 crashes Ardor
DescriptionEventide plugins Physion-2.8.15-osx-installer.dmg and SplitEQ-1.0.18-osx-installer.dmg work with Reaper v6.81/macOS-arm64 on Mac mini M2 and iLok License Manager Version Number 5.8.1 GM (b4991, d40534ab) : AU, VST2 and VST3!

With Ardor 7.5.0 (arm64 and intel) the following problem occurs with Physion and SplitEQ Eventide plugins:
AU plugin:
[ERROR]: AudioUnit: Could not convert CAComponent to CAAudioUnit
VST2 plugin:
[ERROR]: ** ERROR ** VSTFX : /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Eventide/Physion.vst could not be instantiated :(
VST3 plugin:

By disconnecting the iLok usb key and loading the AU or VST2 plugin the iLok authorization mask appears but inserting the iLok usb license the problem remains as indicated by the Ardor logs above.
Steps To ReproduceThis is likely to be a problem with Eventide plugins that require an iLok license. All details indicated in the description
TagsNo tags attached.

Experiencing the same issue with other Eventide plugins:

Note that the Newflanged Audio plugins distributed by Eventide do not exhibit this problem and work correctly:

The same Eventide plugins that don't work with Ardour_7.5.0 (amr64 AND x86_64) WORK with Ardour_6.9.0_Intel_x86_64 (with the same Mac Mini M2)!!!
It is evident that there is something wrong with Ardour 7.5.0 for Eventide plugins.

good news, Ardour 8.0rc1.30 (Intel and arm) work perfectly with AU/VST2/VST3 Eventide plugins
