Postby Halonmusic; Mon Jan 22, 2018 4:20 pm Is there any DAWs that still support dx/dxi plugins?

There is a specific synth i used a lot years ago. Dreamstation DXi2 by Audio Simulation.

I know it's nothing special about Dreamstation buy i've always loved it sound.

Im using FL Studio 11 and ENERGYXT 3 and they don't support dx/dxi plugins afaik.

Anyone?

REAPER does.

(No bit-bridging for DX(i) plugins available in REAPER though, so you'd have to use REAPER 32 bit version, assuming Dreamstation is 32 bit).

Just use a VST wrapper... but basically any random synth will sound similar or better.

Polac dxshell, maybe?

viewtopic.php?t=177538

Downloaded but got lazy and never tested it.

[1 day later edit:]

Tested the dxshell and it actually works better than I expected.
It auto-located the dx stuff I had installed (some Sonar stuff) without needing any action, easy.

Working fine in Live 10 (I guess this means it should work in every DAW that supports VST2), works like waveshell, shows up as a folder in the browser.

Only if you save a state with a dx/dxi plugin from an older version and load it up in a newer version i believe.

MixCraft is a good one, but I'll go out on a limb and mention RealBand by PG Music also supports it.

Sonar still supports DX/DXi plug-ins, and older versions of Sonar actually supplied Dreamstation. Cakewalk Music Studio probably does, too. Of course, they're both discontinued now, but you probably (hopefully?) weren't looking for long-term support for DXi plug-ins, anyway, since their days are numbered.

Which would be a perfectly named product if they dropped the 'n'.

Nope, Mixcraft dropped DX support with version 7.

Yeah only interested in using Dreamstation DXI2 again. Doesn't matter which daw it is.

EDIT:

Could maybe Jeskola Buzz support dx/dxi plugins?
