Massey Plug-ins has been one of the plug-in brands that people have been waiting for to go AAX. Massey have been working on them and they have now announced that DRT, their drum replacement plug-in, is available in the AAX 64 bit format and so is compatible with Pro Tools 11.
DRT is now alive and well for Pro Tools 11 and the AAX format on Mac. I hope to get TD5 crackling before the end of the year.
Then I’m back to the Windows Neverland of Microsoft Visual Studio to work on Windows versions! Sorry, I just can’t accurately speculate on a release date for AAX on Windows. It’s been a spell since I’ve coded anything on Windows and I’ve already hit one sticky, annoying issue: Microsoft is dragging their feet and aren’t fully supporting the last C++ standard (from 2011). I guess C++11 is their AAX! Hah. So, I might have to spend a minute degrading my code backwards to 1998.
So good news one more of Steven’s excellent plug-ins is now available to Pro Tools 11 Mac users and TD5 is on the way. But for Windows users the wait may be a long one.
