Unsupported Hosts

These hosts have been found to not work with Source-Nexus due to the way that they are configured to use plugins or due to incompatibilities. Note these are NOT DAWs – they are audio editing programs and therefore do not run plugins real-time. These can only be used to record on VO side for backups (on MAC) and without using Nexus. On Windows, whether or not you can record with these at the same time as Using Source-Nexus will depend on the audio interface and if a true multi-client ASIO driver has been provided by the interface manufacturer. Windows will not share most plug and play audio drivers that install automatically when you plug the interface in.
