Really great software! Compatible with just about every VST I've tried, and the ones that didn't work were broken for most other Hosts as well. Whether you're professional or just a beginner noodling about (which I am the latter) this is a great program for music. Simple and easy to learn.

Very stable. I tested this app and it hosted 99% of the VST plugs i gave it. A little barebones compared to some Hosts but it has a very straight forward interface and it is intuitive enough for new users and capable for advanced users as well.

It says it is a midi player. How does it play midi files?

In the engine menu there's a midi player section.

I select my MIDI device, from Devices, but it will still not operate any of the VSTi's I open. Am I missing something obvious?

It should work straight after you select the correct midi input device (hardware I mean...). Maybe your vsti require a specific midi channel, or your keyboard is not setup correctly. Here is the manual:http://www.hermannseib.com/documents/VSTHost.pdf

Thanks for replying. I read the manual, and nothing. Then, after much head scratching, I found that under "Devices" - "MIDI" - "MIDI Input Devices" - "Filter Settings" all 16 channels were ticked. Once I cleared all these (click "None") everything now works fine. Not sure why these were all ticked in the first instance, but there you go. This might be one to check for anybody else who cannot get their controller to work.

I am a electronic music engineer and teacher, I totally recommend this freeware, learn to use for your practical applications, set up your keyboards for live performances in the save banks... you can switch to each between songs on stage, your settings are saved and when you open your named configuration, even the KNOBS and SLIDERS all the settings on the synth are there, you just play... I record live performance using the WAV recorder, hundreds of riffs from the synths I get here or where ever and I make banks that I archive like LOOPS, then when working in my DAW tracker, I import the WAV files and arrange in my songs, I flip through all the different ones I made prior and select, I build songs this way... I can make hundreds of riff, little measures fast and easy with out having to open and use my DAW, it's hard to just shuffle through VSTi in the DAW (you open one, insert midi track, play, the bounce to tracks, then erase or delete off,-you know the process, with this it's so much easier to make your wav files). With this, you can be a PRO BAND on Audacity by just importing in your recorded wav files...

How do you hook up midi keyboards???

if you haven't figured out yet, your keyrigs need to have the driver installed on your computer, then in VSTHost, on the command bar, go to devices, look for midi, if your keyboards on hooked up to computer and turn on, the driver for the boards are instal properly, you should see your midi devices name, click on it then click ok. All my keyrigs are USB powered, the ones for stage performance atleast, but a few of my older synths I cant use as controller for this host or any VSTi hosting application like DAW systems. Only the banks in the synth itself can be used. You can use a logitech game controller on this host...LOL, I do live on stage...

I'm having problems using this, my guitar is already working with my PC, I still can't get audio for my Free Amp 3 plugin. I have a realtek audio driver if that helps.

Since I am a guru at midi and electronica... I will tell you... You need to record your guitar live plugged into your tracker DAW, from the guitar to your mic jack... don't USE a pre amp or you will blow out your soundcard, split off on a Y adapter one to mic jack one to pre amp, Audacity does this too, it will record the vibrations from your pick ups just fine, sound sort of like a acoustic...sort of, like how you played your guitar without a amp, after you made your recording, and saved, disabled the record, then add the free AMP PLUG IN on your EFFECTS CHAIN, you can then tweak the amp to sound like your hardware amp if you have any more questions.... hit me up at "liam labelingtheia" on FB, i will answer you and help you...just no spam.

People usually call it as vst tester, but I say it is more and more than this with its wide possibilities and stability especially in live performance.

I love THIS-you can set up the tools bars..you can record what vsti then save it to your desk top, record many different synth parts from many vsti save all to the desktop folder (it records as a wav.) then you can open your DAW and insert the wav. files into a audio track, from there you can tweek it, beat mapper, cross fade, what ever you want to do to it. A better way to make your own loops with your midi controller than FL
