Wusik VM is a VST Plug-in Manager / Organizer. The idea behind WVM is very simple - load WVM and inside it load your VST plug-ins. Then extract the presets to FXP files, you can organize those files in any way you want, or download categorized FXP files from Wusik's planned future library of VST FXP files. When a FXP is loaded, it will load the correct VST plug-in for it and apply the FXP Preset to the loaded VST.
For example, you could have a directory with FXP files of BASS sounds. Those files can be from several different VST plug-ins. When you browse and load each FXP, it will load the correct plug-in making browsing for sounds with multiple plug-ins much easier. You can categorize by mood, style, or any way you want.
Wusik VM also includes 2 VST MIDI-Tools: Arpeggiator and Melody.
Wusik ARP features a step-grid and ARP Speed selector. Regular Up, Down, Up-Down and Random modes. Each for the option of up to 3 octaves.
Wusik Melody: You play a chord in the lower section of the MIDI-keyboard, and the upper section white-keys will follow the chord you play. So, for instance, if you play 2 keys at the lower area, those 2 keys will be used for all the white keys on the upper area, going one octave up every 2 keys. This way, you can just worry about the chords, and play anything on the white keys upper area, and they will stay on the melody. You can even build up a more complex melody by sequencing the lower area with several keys, lets say, 8 keys, and just play the white keys on the upper area while the sequencer plays the lower chords. A Sustain pedal can also be set to work only on the lower area. So you hold sustain, play several keys on the lower area, and the upper area will follow that logic. This tool has 3 modes: Free Chord Play, One Finger Chord - where you can assign up to 12 chords to unique keys and Transposer Key/Octave mode.

William K's multi VST patch and bank management utility is a real tour de force. I can be nice to have even if you don't use the patch management, for things like the built-in arpeggiator, but it becomes indispensable for special cases.
For example, you can use it as a giant patch aggregator, or you can wrap any VSTs that don't include on-board bank and patch management.
I use it to allow The brilliant (in the American sense) Krakli Cygnus to work flawlessly from within Kore 2 (which doesn't add bank load controls to external synths).
Wusik VM gives you the freedom to either work with specific intruments, or ignore the source and just work with the sounds you need!
You could use Wusik VM a hundred different ways, but a good measure of its power is how adaptable it is to your specific requirements.Read more
