Using Model 15 in a DAW that doesn't support the AUv3 plugin format

Modified on Thu, 29 Jun, 2023 at 3:15 PM

The Model 15 plugin wrappers provide AUv2 and VST3 versions of the Model 15 plugins for hosts that don’t support the AUv3 plugin format. Both wrappers can be found here:


To install the AUv2 plugins, drag “Model 15.component”, “Model 15 AudioBridge Trunk.component”, and “Model 15 AudioBridge Insert.vst3” into the folder “/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components”.

To install the VST3 plugins, drag “Model 15.vst3”, “Model 15 AudioBridge Trunk.vst3”, and “Model 15 AudioBridge Insert. vst3” into the folder “/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3”.

Please open the Model 15 application at least once before using any of the plugins.


  • Model 15 (wrapped)
  • Model 15 AudioBridge Trunk (wrapped)
  • Model 15 AudioBridge Insert (wrapped)

Some hosts will also list the non-wrapped versions, even if they don’t support the AUv3 format. Using these will display a black plugin window instead of a functioning Model 15. Selecting the wrapped versions instead will use the AUv2 or VST3 versions with full Model 15 functionality.

When both the wrapped and non-wrapped versions fully work in your host, using the non-wrapped versions will provide better performance.
