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!

Great tool

Great Sound, easy and straight forward operation, completely functional.

Garritan Rocks!

I've only just started using World Instruments, but I'm amazed at how realistic the instruments sound and the coverage of all the different types of instruments for each country. I was actually a little disappointed by the sitar sound (though it might just be the way i'm playing the keyboard for it), but the rest of the instruments are amazing. The 'ensemble' groups make it easy and fun to put together several instruments that play nicely together. The interface is easy to use, intuitive, and the visual display of each instruments range on a keyboard at the bottom is invaluable for scoring the different authentic sounds together.
