Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Can't without anymore...

Without PW as a instrument host for my Access Virus and DSI Evolver i'm unable to use my hardware synths "plugged out" in Pro Tools. And since BlueCat brought the flexible audio / midi routing onto the table, it is a killer tool for me - i just can't live without BC PatchWork anymore.

What's to think about!

You can use your VST and AU plug-ins inside of Protools 11, which supports only AAX, You can update all your VST and AU plugins to AAX or spend $79 bucks. You do the math!

Great Plugin!

Incredible plugin, lets you use AU and VST plugins within the Pro Tools environment. Works exactly as it should! Worth the money. I am now using this with pro tools 11, with this installed, I can use my hardware plugin controllers designed for VST to control my plugins! Great!
