The VST to Audio Unit Adapter for Mac OS X is a highly-integrated plug-in wrapper that allows users of Audio Unit-compatible applications such as Apple's Logic and MOTU's Digital Performer to integrate VST plug-ins and instruments seamlessly in to their working environment.

Once installed and configured, the wrapper creates "virtual Audio Units" for each of your VST plug-ins, which behave exactly the same as true Audio Units in every respect.

Wow - I'm the first to review this - cool :-)

I was a bit reluctant to buy this one at first, but finally decided to give it a go - GOOD CHOICE!!

Works very well with most of my plugs, there are a few that are causing problems at the moment (Vokator & Plex) but FXpansion are on it and promise a fix in the next version. They allready fixed the problems some where having with Waves plug-ins, so the development speed is very good, they listen to their customers and they do their best to fix things quickly.

I thought is was a bit expensive at first, but considering that I now have several instruments that I could never have used otherwise, I actually think the price is very reasonable.

You have to remember to not delete the VST versions of the plugs after conversion, as this will crash your host - I allready read that in the forums and the read-me, so I didn't have any problems - just thought I'd let you know :-)

A great product, which solves a very annoying situation very elegantly.

Highly recommended.Read Review

Being a Logic user on mac loving his vst-pluggie collection i was like "WHAT?!?!" when emagic announced that they drop vst-support - it really gave me headaches.
Then the first rumours (or wishes) about a possible adapter appeared ... and hey - Angus from fxpansion was really fast in doing a really fine product giving me and others the hope to be happy using logic on osX.
Without the adapter my complete switch to osX would take ages ... but now i know that iĀ“lll go the osX-way this year.

It works fine! And it feels almost the same as using AUs.
fxpansions work on the adapter is stunning and fast - they know how to do it!

thank you.Read Review

Very useful for all those who always complain about the inability of the SynthEdit VSTs to work on OS X. Yeah.
