Hello. I don’t know if this is the right board to ask this question, but Avid has posted one of the programmers’ comment regarding why they chose AAX.
In the post, this guy basically says that VST is not powerful enough to achieve what Pro Tools need. I seriously doubt it. I mean, of course, that depends what they trying to accomplish, but what PT 10 has and Cubase and Nuendo don’t right now, which might require some audio engine that is more powerful than VST?
He also sounds like he implies AU would have been the candidate if it wasn’t a Mac only platform. So I wanna know is this guy serious? VST is inferior to AU and AAX? Any logical explanation?
I mean I thought about upgrading my PTMP8 to 10, but considering what I get for $499,I thought it is sort of ridiculous to do it. So I decided not to this time.
Why I’m skeptical about the comment is because he also says in the same post that their upgrade is not to rob their customers which I kinda think Avid has been doing recently.
Are they feel threatened by the growth of the Cubase users base?
