A very nice host app for VSTs!.

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

Yes unfortunately it has gone from freeware to donationware :(.

Your name should be Black Whiny. The nag screen only appears once.

Simply the best VSTHost ever done.

I only regret it has not been upgraded for years now.

This is a great Programm.

And with some nice Skins it looks a bit more "pro" => http://www.hermannseib.com/vsthostskins.htm.

We do our complete Live-Show with this monster:

Live-Synths and Efx
Program-Changes for Guitar-Amps
Midi-Note-Trigger for Video-Starts.

Just Great.
