AU vs VST ?
Posted: Mon May 28, 2007 5:10 pm
I read a lot of people requesting AU versions of the plugins ... I'm a mac user myself, but don't really know what the difference is between AU and VST ... I use both AU's & VST's in Ableton Live ... what exactly would be the benefit of having an AU version?
the current VST plugings work just fine in Ableton ...
If anyone can clarify this a bit?

The main reason is that Logic (very popular in Mac world) doesn't support VSTs - only AUs
There are of course some technical differences but even not worth mentioning IMHO

Yeah I understand if your host app doesn't support VST's but aside from that ... I mean pure in use of the plugins, nothing changes? performance, sound quality etc. All those things stay exactly the same, right?
For me, as I use Ableton Live, there's no reason to pick an AU version of a plugin over a VST version or vice versa, is there?

i'm using logic on a universal binary mac. most companies have au versions available as soon as they make universal binary versions anyway.
i bought a vst to au wrapper. i only had to use it in three instances
but only one works completely.
the real rub in most instances is universal mac. i had no idea they would make something so incompatible when i bought it.

Wouldn't it be possible to use PH/DR/NP as VST in Ableton rewired into Logic Pro ?

Ableton lve in rewire mode the vst/au are excluded,but wrapped with FXPANSION...
Drumazon and Phoscyon work,but Nepheton only 3-4 minute work,then crash!!
