    I think Logic uses AU plug ins (correct me if Im wrong), and I do not believe Pro Tools supports AU. So probably not.

    It really shouldn't make much difference? If you have one program, Digital Performer? You still probably should have the other program, Pro Tools. It's only a couple hundred more bucks. Well, at least not much more than that. You'll spend a lot more money than this in your lifetime. You can't live without it. You know you want it. No single program is a one-stop shop. We all have more than one. And don't forget those updates & upgrades. You have to keep digging in your pockets, over & over again. But that's the fun of it. That wonderful audio addiction. The burning desire for new, better, more, never stops.

    AU (Audio Unit) plugins do not work in ProTools that requires a protocol like RTAS (Real Time Audio Suite). There are however plugins commercially available that come in all shapes VST, AU and RTAS so they can be used on any platform. If something comes shipped with Logic, then it probably won't work with ProTools and vice versa.

    If you can somehow with both programs running interconnect digitally you can use reverbs or so from another program. If there's enough i/o on your Digidesign piece of hardware you could make it happen.

    No, the Logic instruments and effects are not seperate plugins, but part of the source code and can only be used in Logic.

    But there is a VST to RTAS wrapper for use with free and commecrial plugs.

    The wrapper is available at Digi's site.

    If you have a TDM system and use Logic as the software front end, you can use the Logic plugs and effects, along with TDM based plugs.
