How to identify whether a loaded plug-in is in VST or Audio Unit format (Mac)
- 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 do not have that chooser.
VST vs AU
Note: in general, it is recommended to avoid using the same plug-in in different plug-in formats in a Live Set. Though, using a mix of different VST and Audio Unit plug-ins in a Live Set should not be a problem.
