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!

An unusual collection filled with strumming, plucking, and tapping sounds
Plectrum V2 is loaded to the brim with unusual sounds, ready to add nuance to your songs — or inspire new ones. The idea behind plectrum was to record all sorts of plucking, strumming, flicking, and tapping sounds — both on prepared instruments and found objects — then turn them into playable virtual instruments. In the collection, you'll find sounds generated from stretched strings, glass vessels, water-filled cups, breaking twigs, and more. There are 187 original instruments included in Plectrum V2, with an additional 45 combination "Multi" presets.
