  1. Close your DAW
  2. Open Finder
  3. From the Go menu select "Go to folder..."
  4. Copy and paste in: /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
  5. In there you should see the file "Primer.component". If you don't you're in the wrong folder.
  6. Download Primer 1.1.901, unzip it, and move it to the folder from step 5.
  7. When it asks you if you want to replace the existing file say yes
  8. Right-click it and select Open. You may see a message about it being malicious software. IT IS NOT MALICIOUS. We promise, so go ahead and open it. When asked what application to use, choose Utilities/Console. Then close the console. 
  9. Open your DAW, and Primer should no longer cause it to crash.
