VSTForx by Samba Godschynski (a.k.a. Johannes Unger) is an amazingly simple, yet powerful modular effect network creation tool. Admittedly, when I first launched this plugin I had no idea where to begin; however, after watching a couple short video tutorials I was up-and-running in no time.
Open a track in my DAW.
Drop VSTForx onto track.
Add a few plugins to the Scene.
Move them around into an order that made sense to me.
Create a routing system by connecting the plugins via dragged lines.
Open individual plugin windows as needed and select presets and/or adjusted parameters.
Many, if not all DAWs, allow users to apply multiple effects plugins to a track, but with VSTForx they are all visually displayed, organized, and edited on one page. Virtual instruments can also be loaded and assigned MIDI channels.
Provides endless routing possibilities and facilitates control over plugins (effects and instruments).
Beautiful to work with — a visual dream.
Creative, intuitive, straightforward, and fun.
Addictive (not sure if this is a pro or con).
Automations (haven't tried yet).
Price is insanely low.
Responsive developer (communication and updates).
VST only, probably due to AU limitations.
VSTForx eliminates plugin effect routing madness. It takes one of the most frustrating things about producing music electronically and turns into an addictive pleasure. This plugin speeds up the creative process. What's not to like? I highly recommend VSTForx to any and all e-musicians, producers, DJs, sound designers, etc. Basically, this plugin is for anyone who makes e-music and has some spare change in his or her PayPal account. Tommy Zai gives VSTForx two simple, but powerful thumbs up. Thank you for creating such a limitless routing plugin.
