VSTi Host work with all VST plugins?
With most of them! We used to maintain a plugin compatibility chart on this site, but keeping up with the number of new plugins out there made it tough to keep it up to date. Instead, we highly recommend that you simply download the demo version and try VSTi Host with your own plugins, to be sure that it works well with the plugins you plan to use with it.
VSTi Host work with Logic? (ProTools?, etc...?)
Yes. You can easily send MIDI information from Logic (or other
sequencer) to VSTi Host, via an OMS-IAC bus (OS 9) or via CoreMIDI (OS
X). You can also route the audio from VSTi
Host back into any DirectConnect (OS 9) or ReWire (OS 9 & X) compliant
Can you run more than one VSTi at a time,
or can you run more than one instance of VSTi Host at a time?
You can't run more than one instance of VSTi Host
on OS9 at one time, so you are therefore limited to only 1 VSTi at a time on that platform.
However, on OS X, you can run more than one instance of VSTi
Host (by renaming the 2nd VSTi Host application something else, for
example "VSTi Host *" or something similar). In this way, each can
host a VSTi, and so you can use more than one VSTi at a time.
In future versions of VSTi Host (in both OS 9 and X), you will be able
to host more than one VSTi in a single instance of the application
Do plugins hosted in VSTi Host
receive MIDI clock information from other programs?
Unfortunately, not at this time. We hope to
address this in a future version of the program.
did you create VSTi Host?
used Cycling 74's Max and MSP
software - pretty amazing piece of software - the possibilities are
you planning a PC version?
Eventually, we may release a PC version, but we can't comment for
sure on if or when that will happen...
you planning to include FreeMIDI support?
since we are dependent on the Max/MSP framework, and currently since
those do not support FreeMIDI, we are limited to OMS for now.
VSTi Host shareware?
You can freely download and use the demo version for your own use.
You may not redistribute the demo version without our permission, including
use on magazine "cover CD's". When you
purchase the full version, you may not distribute that version, or
your individual username and password, to any other party.
Do you have a money back guarantee?
No - since we offer a fully functional demo
version, we encourage you to try the application and be sure it's right
for you before purchasing, as we do not offer any refunds once purchased.
