FXpansion Bring VST To OSX Audio Units

New adaptor enables VST within Logic and DP      04/04/03

We knew someone was going to come up with the solution, and FXpansion appear to be the first/ One thing that is holding many Logic users back from taking the plunge to OSX is the lack of Audio Unit compatible third party plugins. Under OSX, native VST is not supported within Logic and many people have a lot invested in their VST collections under OS 9.x. Now, with the announcement of FXpansions VST to Audio Units wrapper, it's possible to run your old favourites in the new environment. Once installed, the adapter is invisible to the user - plug-ins load and behave exactly like native AudioUnits, reaping the full low-latency benefits of Apple's advanced plug-in architecture. Thanks to its high-efficiency design, CPU overhead from the wrapper is so low as to be practically non-existent - less than 0.1% per instance on a 550MHz PowerBook G4. FXpansion's Technical Director, Angus Hewlett, explains: "Apple's AudioUnit architecture is the leading next-generation plug-in architecture, and has many benefits. As the leading developer of plug-in adapter technology, we are ideally placed to offer a bridge to the huge selection of existing plug-ins in the Steinberg VST format. Our technology provides an unprecedented degree of integration - the VST plug-ins are converted 'on the fly' to true AudioUnits, and from the user's perspective behave identically to native AudioUnit plug-ins." The VST to AudioUnit Adapter ships in April, and is available for preorder from FXpansion's web site at http://www.fxpansion.com , priced just $75.00 / Eu75,-- plus taxes where applicable.
