    Question, in what folder do you place a 3rd party plugin in order for protools to recognize it. It is a component plugin. I have it in Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components
    Logic recognizes it but protools dose not. Thank you

    Not sure what you mean by component. ProTools plugins are either TDM or RTAS. On top of that, there should have been an installer which automatically selects the right folder. If, these are wares, you're not going to find any help here.

    am sorry i meant to say AU and no it is legit. The plugin is stored in the component folder. I was told protools recognized AU plugins.

    Well, if it's legit, just run the installer again and make sure you select RTAS as an option, this will install the plugin into the correct folder.
