VSTAU Manager is an free Audio Unit adapter that allows VST plug-ins to be used in AU hosts


It's a free open source application called VSTAU, an Audio Unit adapter which theoretically allows VST plug-ins to be used in AU hosts. This application creates wrappers for your VST plug-ins in that will make them available as Audio Units in programs like Logic Pro and GarageBand. Alternatively also you can visit our gallery of Syntheway's products, which we have compiled for Macintosh users in USyntheway Virtual Musical Instruments for Macntosh: AU Audio Units (.component), VST (.vst) for Apple Mac OS X. Syntheway Virtual Instruments AU Audio Units (.component), VST (.vst) Sample Libraries were made specially for Mac users in order to use it on Apple Mac OS X v10.6 "Snow Leopard", Mac OS X v10.7 "Lion", Mac OS X v10.8 "Mountain Lion".niversal Binary format, so they are compatible and runs natively on Intel-manufactured IA-32 (Intel Architecture, 32-bit) or Intel 64-based Macintosh computers: AU Audio Units (.component) and VST (.vst) Sample Libraries for Mac OS X.


Note: Please be aware that we haven't tested the VSTAU application, just we have information from their developer, Seth Kingsley. Apparently it works only with ".vst" extension (VST format for Mac). We deduce that this does not work with VST format for Windows PC with DLL extension (Dynamic Link Library).  So, to determine whether the software meets your requirements, we encourage you to test the VSTAU with our free Syntheway demo files. 

To convert Win PC dll files maybe you could to try the WACVST wrapper for use with Intel Mac OS X based VST hosts. In the case that you wish to run Magnus Choir, we advise go to these native Mac options available. For other Syntheway VSTs available for Mac OS X check out here.

Audio Unit (AU): AU is the plug-in format developed by Apple to coincide with their new audio and MIDI technologies in OS X. Certain programs like Logic support Audio units exclusively, while other programs like Digital Performer 4 support their own MAS format as well as Audio Units. Audio Units are handled at the level of the OS X operating system itself and for programmers they can have a certain advantages in that two separate engines exist for the GUI of the plug-in as well as the sound engine itself, allowing for a more advance user interface design.
