Providing you with the ability to host VST or AU plug-ins in an RTAS or AAX environment, the PatchWork Virtual Patchbay for Audio Plug-Ins from Blue Cat Audio can host up to 64 VST or AU plug-ins in a single instance. For versatility, it can operate as either an audio plug-in or virtual instrument, allowing to load both instruments and effects.
