New Logic Series supports VST and DirectX

The MacOS versions of the new Logic series supports Steinberg’s VST Plug-In Format. This will allow all users to run VST-compatible Plug-Ins directly within Logic Audio (Press Release). Users of the Windows Versions will appreciate the new support for Microsoft’s Plug-In format DirectX. The DirectX support will be included in all Windows versions of the new Logic series.

Logic Audio supports VST Plug-Ins
Emagic announces support of Steinberg’s VST Plug-In format for the new Logic Audio Series on the MacOS.

With VST, Steinberg has developed a Plug-In format which has become an appealing alternative to other existing interface formats because of its real-time capabilities and the variety of available compatible Plug-Ins. As a result of Emagic's search for a practical standard with which to implement Plug-Ins within its MacOS products, VST has emerged as the most suitable standard to support. Thanks to Steinberg’s cooperation, full VST support will be available within the complete Logic Audio Series. This development means that the entire palette of VST Plug-Ins from Steinberg and other companies will be available to Emagic users with the new Logic Audio Series for the MacOS.

“True standards are always welcomed by both developers and end-users,” says Sven Kindel, Emagic’s President and ceo. “They allow manufacturers to develop more efficiently while simplifying product choices for customers. With this in mind, the VST format for MacOS is an ideal choice and we believe that Emagic provides a very good solution to all users by supporting this Plug-In interface format. The practical advantages to users should always come first and I am very pleased that Steinberg and Emagic are following this course together.”

Manfred Rürup, Steinberg’s Managing Director says, “Making decisions in which users win is always the right thing to do and I’m particularly happy that Emagic and Steinberg have decided to make use of the VST Plug-In technology together. This will create an even broader basis for the concept of Native Audio Processing. The cooperation with Emagic and all the Plug-In developers will contribute new ideas and input for the further development of the VST Plug-In standard. To me, this is another positive aspect of this decision.”
