Battery 4 version 2.0 will not load in protools 2021.12 error not 64 bit on my MAC running OS X 10.15.7 This is the AXX plugin I am referring to. The stand alone app in the applications folder does work.

Anyone else have this issue? Any help is appreciated.

    Do You mean Battery 4, Version 4.2.0 (which would be the latest) or are you using an older version? Asking to add Clarity to your question!

    I am having the exact same issue with Battery 4.2 AAX plugin running 10.15.7 on a Mac. Works fine as standalone and AU...

    Someone shed some light on this issue please.

    @myronnative @nick2piece Try this:

    1. Delete the Battery 4.AAX file from this location: Mac HD > Library > Application Support > Avid > Audio > Plug-Ins
    2. Open Pro Tools
    3. Close Pro Tools
    4. Reinstall Battery 4 with Native Access.
    5. Give Pro Tools Full Disk Access How to Enable Full Disk Access on macOS
    6. Open Pro Tools, load Battery 4

    Any luck ?
