Have Pro Tools installed
Have Blue Cat's PatchWork installed
(Blue Cat's PatchWork is a software product developed by Blue Cat Audio, which essentially acts as a "universal plug-ins patch bay." It allows users to host multiple third-party Audio Units (AU), VST, or VST3 plug-ins within a single stand-alone application or DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) plug-in instance. This simplifies the management of complex plug-in chains and provides a flexible way to interconnect various audio processing plug-ins without the limitations of a particular DAW's native plug-in hosting capabilities.)
