vst vs AU

Postby Nubeat7 » Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:03 pm

A public service announcement: If you're using a host like Live or Studio One that allows both VST and AudioUnit plug-in hosting, you're better off using the VST in virtually every instance. There are hardly any true AudioUnits. The _vast_ majority of commercial AUs are either wrapped VSTs, or wrapped to some internal company format, so you're just adding an unnecessary layer of crap to the process.

Interesting indeed and not surprising at all. VST format is so much more widespread for DAWs and other sound-manipulation software that when you create an AU you're basically just filling in your marketings gap for the AU users. On the other side, look at flowstone... the vst format is also utilized by a wrapper (a gui-less version of flowstone) which loads the schematic (the internal company format).
