Default Anywhere to find the VST version of these Avid Account AAX Plugs?

Decided to try Ableton in Tandem with Pro Tools, looking for the VST version for the following plugins from my AVID account if they are available somewhere without needing to repurchase from the original manufacturer. I know some of these (specifically AVID) won't have VST formats but here is the entire list I'm still looking for.

---UVI Falcon 2 (looked in UVI Portal and don't see an option to download VST Format)
---Tracktion BioTek (Also looked in Tracktion Download Manager and don't see an option to download VST)
---AIR Xpand!2 2018
---AVID Virtual Instruments 10
---AIR Creative Collection Instruments 11
---First AIR Instruments 2018
---AVID Eleven FX Bundle -First Air FX 18
---First AIR Fx 2018

You need to buy these if they are available, Avid is not going to give you plugin formats for competing DAWs. All you need is on those vendors web sites.

Avid's own plugins generally are not published in other formats. So Eleven Mk. II for instance is AAX only.

The "First Air ..." bundles are custom bundles for Pro Tools first from Air, many of those plugins were sold back to Air from Avid years ago. The bundle is not available for other formats, you likely need to buy individual Air components or look at what other bundles they offer.

I figured that would be the case for the AIR and AVID stuff - I was mostly wondering about Falcon and Bio Tek.

You can also buy the Air FX plugins in VST/AU. They’ve been available for a while.

I’d never seen the two together - VI and FX. Already own them, but good to know.

It's a shame but UVI just had a 30% off sale which brought Falcon 2 down a decent amount. Also a shame UVI doesn't do demo s/w. Something to keep in mind with Falcon is that the Avid Plugsounds library is not available for use outside of PT.


The reason there's no vst version available from the Portal is that UVI has no knowledge that someone has a license through Avid for Falcon. Two separate entities that way. However if you purchase Falcon from UVI just download Falcon either from the Portal or your user account and reinstall Falcon and it will give you all the plugin formats. This is also the reason Avid provided Falcon is a couple of revisions behind the Falcon purchased from UVI. It's now at 2.1

Hmm I actually already do own The AIEP 3 and Air Creative FX Collection PLUS but I didn't see Xpand in my VST folder anywhere. I must have it somewhere then, I'll have to look back i my emails - but I dont think Xpand is included in those packages? Must be though by the looks of it.
