Arturia has announced the availability of their AAX Updater, which supports Avid’s advanced AAX plug-in format favored by Pro Tools 11.
In Pro Tools 10, Arturia instrument users could run RTAS versions of their plug-ins. With Pro Tools 11, Avid has dropped RTAS support in favor of AAX. Users now have to update their plug-ins to include the new AAX format.
That’s where the AAX Updater comes in – in will update installed Arturia software instruments to run as 64-bit AAX plug-ins in Pro Tools 11.
The AAX Updater runs on Mac OS X 10.8, Windows 7, and Windows 8, as does Pro Tools 11. AAX Updater can be downloaded for free from the Arturia website.
Note: Arturia’s AAX Updater will not update the Analog Laboratory software synthesizer solution, Brass 2.0 virtual acoustic instrument, and SPARK engine software shared by both the SPARK Creative Drum Machine and SparkLE hybrid hardware/software beat production centres. The forthcoming SPARK 1.7 update will be AAX-compatible.
