SAVIHost is a derivative version of VSTHost that can be used to make any VST Effect or VSTi run like a standalone application.
This offers two major advantages:
- Effect or VSTi can be used (tested, checked or tried) easily and directly without the need or search for another host.
- Effect or 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 host's VSTPlugins-subdirectory.
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.
Separate versions for VST 2, VST Module Architecture, and VST3 are available in 32- and 64-bit versions.
