I am using Pro tools 2019 wiyh VE Pro 7. All working except when I choose a plugin in VE Pro it doesn't give me a option to load a AAX plugin just VST or Apple AU. If I load a VST version of Kontakt for exmple the AAX plugin in Pro Tools receives audio fro the VST plugin. Is this how it should work? Is ther any difference in audio quality? Many thanks.

I think you don't quite understand how VEPro works. You have the server which hosts whatever vi you want to run in it and you have the client in PT that shuttles stuff back and forth from VEPro to PT. You can only get audio back into PT in two ways - either via an aux track or an audio track in PT. VEpro only hosts au or vst plugins. AAX is specific to PT and it's the only s/w that can host aax format plugins. VEPro only hosts au or vst format plugins depending on whether you're working in OSX or Windows (vst only in Windows and OSX can handle both au and vst).

 

Most vi's are available in all the major formats - aax, vst, au. The only ones that aren't are those that come with PT as they're aax64 only. Some of the instruments are available through AIR and those have the formats I just mentioned.

1) VE Pro does not host AAX.

2) "If I load a VST version of Kontakt for exmple the AAX plugin in Pro Tools receives audio from the VST plugin"
VE Pro however does connect as an AAX plugin in Pro Tools.

This is how it works. No, there will be no difference in audio quality unless something is broken.
