Blue Cat's Music Software has released Blue Cat's DXi Manager, a simple freeware tool that lets you use DXi plug-ins in any DirectX-enabled application. Many applications do not always support DXi plug-ins correctly: the plug-ins may not be recognized by the host application (not listed) or seen as software synthesizers even if they are only audio effects with MIDI control capabilities. This utility lets you disable the MIDI capabilities of any DXi plug-in so that it's seen as a simple DX plug-in with no MIDI capabilities with a single click. You can of course re-enable the MIDI capabilities as well, which lets you use you DXi plug-ins with optimal support in different applications at the same time.
