Note about DAW/Computer Support
We cannot guarantee support if you are using a supported host platform listed above on an operating system or computer that is not supported by the host platform itself. For example, if you are running Pro Tools 10 on OSX Yosemite, there might be issues out of our control. Please visit your DAW's website or manual to ensure you are using a compatible system.

If your DAW is not on this list, it doesn't necessarily mean that our plug-ins won't work... It just means that it has not been tested. If something goes wrong with an unsupported DAW, you are welcome to write into support, but we cannot guarantee a solution. Please click here for more information about unsupported DAWs.

* We have dropped our 32-bit formats, but can still distribute older 32-bit versions. For more information, please view this article.

** Our older 32-bit versions of Soundtoys 5 are known to work in Pro Tools 10.3.5 and later. But Pro Tools 10 versions prior to that do not support the AAX plugin format, and therefore incompatible.

*** Using Live 9.2.1 or earlier can result in a nasty audio glitch when switching sampling rates during playback, or during offline bounce. We recommend using the latest version of Ableton Live.
