There are currently different plug-ins formats for native systems, all formats developed by Acustica Audio are proprietary formats. The VST format is more widespread since it works on Apple operating systems such as macOS and Microsoft operating systems such as Windows, however, there are other (more limited) formats.

Our recommendation is to use the VST format whenever possible and avoid installing multiple formats when is it possible. Additionally, avoid installing formats not supported by your host (DAW or NLE) in order to save disk space.
