I have been testing the trial standalone program and found it to be really nice. I would love to be able to just keep the standalone up for impromptu practice and composing, etc... Then be able to use as plug in when I'm ready to record to my DAW. I entered into the buy portal to see if there were 2 different purchase types (standalone/vsti) and was not given an option. Does this mean that there is one program and stand alone can also be setup as a plug in. If so, this would be idea. Since I use pro tools and it uses rtas, I assume i will have to use converter such as the FXexpansion converter.
