Tone2 updates NanoHost to v1.2.2

Tone2 Audiosoftware

Tone2 has updated the free minimalist host application NanoHost to v1.2.2. It is suitable for live-performance, testing, jam-sessions and sound-design. Furthermore, it can act as a wrapper which converts VST-synthesizers into standalone applications.

New in v1.2.2:

  • You can display a keyboard with Config->'Show keyboard'.
  • With Config->'Zoom interface' you can zoom the interface of all(.) VST plugins to the largest possible size - even those who do not come with a re-sizeable GUI.
  • The executables are code-signed with a Microsoft-approved certificate.
  • MSVC100.dll is not longer necessary to run the software.
  • Many small enhancements.


  • It is free, requires no registration and you are allowed to share it with your friends.
  • It requires no installation. You can run it directly from a USB-stick or CD.
  • There is no plugin-scanning required since a plugin can be loaded directly - no matter where it is located on the hard-disc.
  • Because of low-level code-optimization it offers highest performance and can operate with lower latency than conventional hosts.
  • The GUI refreshes with a very high frame-rate (120 Hz). That's why you will experience smoother animations and graphics than with other hosts.
  • NanoHost itself requires nearly no space on the screen. As a result there is more space available for the interface of the VST-plugins.
  • The software is tiny. It requires no hard-disc space and is loading extremely fast.
  • Unlike conventional hosts the soundcard settings can be configured individually for every single plugin. This allows you to achieve the best possible performance for your VSTs.
  • NanoHost is very easy to use and offers context-sensitive help.
