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:

  1. Effect or VSTi can be used (tested, checked or tried) easily and directly without the need or search for another host.
  2. 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.

I agree completely and use the 32 and 64 bit versions all the time. Guilty of ingratitude, this gives me an opportunity to say, "Thank you, Hermann Seib!"

Absolutely - this thing is invaluable and I use it all the time. Three cheers for Hermann Seib!'

For people making / debugging plugins this can be very useful for quick trying-out. Especially when combined with command-line shortcuts!

I have Savihost running GSI's VB3 organ on my windows XP notebook. I am using a MIDI keyboard and a Korg Nanokontrol as controllers, each plugged into their own usb ports on the notebook. Savihost will only let me use one MIDI controller... is there a way around this??

Use a recent version, which allows up to 3 MIDI inputs.

Thanks, I found VSTI Host V1.41. Allows 3 inputs and works perfect..

The KVR field "Price" should be not only "Free" but "Free (donationware)". There is a nag screen at each start.

Pour les francophones, j'ai fait un tutoriel en français ici (for frenchies, I have made a french tutorial here) :
