Cheers for the suggestions but I had already done a search of the AppDB and the only VST's I found that I recognize were things like Native Instruments Kontakt, Battery etc. which are both stand alone apps and plugins. Whereas they will most probably work in standalone mode, I am uncertain about whether they (or purely plugin VST's) will appear as Mac compatible VST's in Macintosh HD/Library/Audio/Plugins so that they can be 'wrapped' using a VST to Audio Unit Converter for use in Logic.

I have also searched the forums to no avail, so I am hoping that someone who has either done/attempted this or knows enough about how wine works with audio plugins will read this and offer some information.
