Version 2 of our award winning VST to RTAS Adapter is the easiest and best way to enable your VST effects plugins and VST Instruments in Pro Tools 7.x and 8.x TDM, LE and M-Powered. VST to RTAS Adapter seamlessly and transparently integrates your VST plug-ins in to Pro Tools, and offers full compatibility with the VST plug-in standard and Pro Tools 7.x and 8.x. The adapter uses virtually no CPU power or memory and makes a vast range of free and commercial VST plug-ins (over 1,000 available at the last count) available directly within Pro Tools, exactly as if they were native RTAS plug-ins. It’s incredibly easy to use, and available at an affordable price as a direct, instant download from our on-line store.
Compatibility information for VST to RTAS Adapter 2.0
– VST to RTAS Adapter and Mac OSX 10.7 and 10.8
– For the adapter to work in 10.7 and 10.8, it is necessary to set permissions on the /Library/Application Support folder so that it is possible to read and write its contents. If it is read-only (this is the default on 10.7 and 10.8), the adapter cannot function.
The current compatibility status of the adapter is that it works for VST2.3 plugins and many VST2.4 plugins. It is not possible, due to technical reasons within Pro Tools itself, to update the adapter to work with all VST2.4 plugins. It is possible for the plugin vendor to update their software for compatibility with the adapter with minimal effort.
The VST to RTAS Adapter consists of a simple and easy to use configuration utility which scans for VST plugins on your system and creates RTAS plugins from them. Once created, the VST plug-ins are available for use inside Pro Tools as RTAS plugins. VST Effects and instruments are supported, and there is negligible CPU usage involved: less than 0.05% per plugin instance on a 1GHz computer.
