Important note about AAX plug-ins

Pro Tools | HDX uses the AAX plug-in format, which provides better workflow and sound parity between Pro Tools DSP-accelerated and nativebased systems (watch the video). Pro Tools | HDX comes and works with two flavors of AAX plug-ins—AAX DSP, which uses the HDX card for processing, and AAX Native, which uses power from your host computer’s processors—as well as with RTAS and AudioSuite (TDM is not supported). For more information about AAX and third-party plug-in compatibility, see the AAX Plug-in Compatibility page.
