on latest max (8.1.1) and on the latest MacOS (10.15.2), I am redoing and upgrading my preferred patches.
When using some plug-ins (such as native Instruments' Guitar Rig) I have been told that the audio units do work better (??) on a Mac.. Maybe... but How do I know for those plug-ins which have versions as VST and Audiounits which one is loaded ? of course if I search "manually" (with the "plug" message) I can choose, but with a message in the object (such as [vst~ "guitar Rig 5"] ) ? It seems to me that the choice of the object [audiounit~] or [vst~] should make the difference - does it ? - BUT when saving presets with message "write" [audiounit~] does not work as expected (or as [vst~] does.... It writes the presets in very strange places, sometimes in invisible folders, and is often unable to find them.... when [vst~] works as expected. Which makes me want to use [vst~], but is it different from [audiounits~] ????
