- What is Pluggo?
For some of our plug-ins, we use a special format developed by Cycling ‘74 called Pluggo. Pluggo provides a framework to interface a single, “native Pluggo” plug-in to VST, RTAS, and AU standards. In this way, Pluggo is similar to Waves’ Waveshell framework. Unlike some other “wrapper” approaches, Pluggo does not add latency to the audio stream.
Yes, this does mean that you’ll need to install the free Pluggo Jr. or Pluggo Runtime before using some of our plug-ins.
Pluggo is not required to run any of our standalone applications, it is only used for some of our plug-ins. (Note: Lowender does NOT require Pluggo.)
Although Pluggo has been officially discontinued by Cycling ‘74, it thankfully continues to function on both Mac and Windows operating systems.
