Function: The AVAudioUnitComponentManager class is a singleton object that provides a way to find audio components that are registered with the system.
It provides methods to search and query various information about the audio components without opening them. Currently, only audio components that are audio units can only be searched.

The class also supports predefined system tags and arbitrary user tags. Each audio unit can be tagged as part of its definition. AudioUnit Hosts such as Logic or GarageBand can present groupings of audio units based on the tags.

Searching for audio units can be done in various ways:
  • Using a NSPredicate instance that contains search strings for tags or descriptions
  • Using a block to match on a custom criteria.
  • Using an AudioComponentDescription.

Available in OS X v10.10 and later.
