How to identify whether a loaded plug-in is in VST or Audio Unit format?

  • Live Versions: ALL
  • Operating System: Mac

The easiest way to distinguish VST plug-ins from Audio Unit plug-ins is by the preset chooser of VST plug-ins. Audio Unit plug-ins don't have that chooser.



Note: in general, it's recommended to avoid using the same plug-in in different plug-in formats in a Live Set. In contrast, using a mix of different VST and Audio Unit plug-ins in a Live Set shouldn't be a problem.
