Plug-in formats

All compatible plugin formats are installed by default, however you may choose whether you wish to:

  • Install the AU (or Component) plug-in format, if your DAW only supports Audio Units (i.e. Logic Pro)
  • Install the VST* plug-in format, if your DAW supports VST
  • Install the VST3* plug-in format, if your DAW supports VST3

For more information regarding plug-in format compatibility, or if you are unsure about which plug-in format your DAW supports, please refer to your respective DAW user manual.

Supported DAW software

Serato Sample is supported and tested for use in Serato Studio, Apple’s Logic Pro, Image-Line’s FL Studio, Native Instrument’s Maschine, and Ableton Live.

As the plug-in is available in VST/VST3 and AU formats, it may also work in other DAW environments, but is not tested, so we cannot guarantee performance or stability.
