Tocca-Music has released VSTplayer, a new freeware / donationware VST host application for Windows.
VSTplayer is mainly designed for live performance for keyboarders who want to use VST plug-ins on stage. It supports up to 4 MIDI keyboards. Each project file can open up to 8 VST instrument plug-ins and 3 VST effect plug-ins on each row.
VSTplayer is free but after a trial period of 15 days, whilst it will still work, it will slow down on startup unless you donate to obtain a personal serial number.
