VSTHost is an Open
Source VST-compatible host that:
- Loads VST plugins.
- Parameterizesing / editing them.
- Sound output for VSTis.
- MIDI-input and -output.
- Loading / saving .fxb files
- Supports ASIO2.
Changes in SAVIHost:
- Can be minimized to system tray.
SAVIHost is a
derivative version of VSTHost that
can be used to make any VSTi run like a standalone
This offers two major advantages:
VSTi can be used (tested,
checked or tried) easily and directly without
the need or search for another host.
VSTi can be distributed to be
tested in a temporary directory without the need
of the presence of another host or to search for
a dedicated VSTPlugIns-subdirectory. The
VSTi-dll can still be used within other hosts
like Cubase, Sonar etc. when copied to that
For use just rename SAVIHost.exe to
the corresponding VSTi.dll e.g. if there is
abc123.dll rename SAVIHost.exe to abc123.exe and
this will run the VSTi.
Changes in both programs:
- Wave player supports auto-stereo mode for
- Lots of bug fixes and internal changes.
SAVIHost and VSTHost are free.
