What is VST ?


VST - Virtual Studio Technology by Steinberg - is an interface for integrating software audio synthesizers and effects plug-ins with audio editors and recording systems. VST uses digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware through the use of software only. VST plug-ins are generally run within a digital audio workstation and provide a custom graphic user interface displaying controls similar to the physical switches and knobs on audio hardware. Thousands of plug-ins exist, both commercial and freeware, and VST is supported by a large number of audio applications (a.k.a VST host), including Music Morpher from AVnex. A VST host is a software application or hardware device that allows VST plugins to be loaded and controlled. There are a wide range of VST-compatible hosts available; some of the most popular include Ableton Live, Cubase, FL Studio, etc. As stated above, AV Music Morpher is also one of them.   


If you are a computer savvy musician but not yet familiar with VST technology, it is highly recommended that you should start to get acquainted. It can help cut down on your equipment costs and potentially streamline your recording and editing processes.
