VSTForx

Modular Freedom

VSTForx is a full-modular effect network creation tool which comes as a VST-plugin. With VSTForx you are able to load any number of VST-plugins and connect them anyway you want.

Additional modules allow you to manipulate such signal chains and offer a whole new way in mixing and producing.

Plugin chain example
Parameter network example

Advanced Controls

Build complex controler chains by creating parameter networks composed of arbitrary plugin parameters. With special audio-transformer modules it’s possible to control parameters with audio events.



Available Features



Basic Features

  • Free Plugin Chaining

    Unlike many other plugin chainers you are able to build effect chains similar to "real" circuits. With that you have more control on how your sound is created.

  • Free Parameter Binding

    Every effect and every module is controlled by parameters. All of these parameters have a knob representation which can be placed and controlled on the main "circuit" view. With the knobs you are able to bind parameters together, so that every parameter changing will be transmitted to its neighbours.

  • Connection Operators

    are modificators for parameter value transmissions. Available operators are Inverse, Logarithmic, Exponential, Multiplier, Min/Max and Offset.



Internal Modules

Besides the plugins VSTForx knows three types of modules: the signal processor, the signal switch and the signal transformer.


  • Input/Output Switches

    are able to switch between several states while every state belongs to an input or output. An "Input Switch" for example can switch several inputs to one output. A "selector" parameter controls the switch state. Furthermore several parameters control the "fade-in / fade-out" behaveiour.

  • Input/Output Step Switches

    Unlike the "I/O Switches" the "Step Switch" state is not controlled by a parameter. The states will be iterated automatically. Either with a fixed time per state or synced to the beat of your DAW.

  • The ADSR Trigger

    generates an ADSR sequence triggered by an audio signal. This sequence will be transformed into an output parameter value. Thus it's possible to control parameters (or rather the connected units) with any audio input.

  • Remote Channel

    offers (system wide) signal communication between VSTForx instances. So it's possible to send an audio stream from a VSTForx instance in Ableton Live to a VSTForx instance loaded in Cubase. Just as it works for audio data, it's possible to transmit parameter values.

  • VSTForx further modules

    Further Modules

    Volume, Pan, Peaktracker, MIDI Receiver

  • Script module symbol

    Script Modules

    give you the opportunity to write user specific modules in the - easy to learn - Lua language. Lua is fast enough to implement own signal processors or sound generators. Furthermore you can write scripts to manage the view and its elements.

Planned Features



Modules / Features

Multiple IO's icon

Multiple I/O's: At the present VSTForx has only one stereo input and one stereo output. Future versions of VSTForx are able to add arbitrary inputs and outputs.

Physics icon

Physics Contoller: Consider the Physics Controller as a physics driven sandbox environment. Every object and it's physical values can be bound to an output parameter value.

64-bit support symbol

64-bit support: A 64-bit version of VSTForx would be able to load 32-bit and 64-bit plugins.


VST3 Logo

VST3 Support: Future versions of VSTForx will support VST3 plugins.

Audio Unit icon

AU Support: with AU-support it is possible to load AU-plugins in VSTForx as well as loading VSTForx as an AU plugin. Of course this feature is only available for the Mac version of VSTForx.




User Interface

Zoom icon

Zoom In/Out: thanks to the new vector oriented GUI, future versions of VSTForx will have a seamless zoom-in and zoom-out function.

Undo/Redo icon

Undo/Redo: VSTForx will support undo and redo in the future.

Stepeditor icon

Editor for Step modules: Create complex rhythm patterns for the Step Modules with a convenient "Piano Roll"-like editor.




OS Support

VSTForx is available for Windows and Mac.

I constantly emailed this weblog post page to all my associates,
for the reason that if like to read it afterward
my friends will too.

Danke! Das war es wohl. Habe es mehrmals probiert. Heute hat es dann spontan doch geklappt. Oder irgendeins meiner zahlreichen Firefox Antiskript-Spio nageabwehr-Werb eblocker-Plugin s hat mal wieder gestört ;)

Möglicherweise wurde da beim Hochladen etwas vertauscht oder ein verkehrter Downloadlink zur Vollversion hinterlegt?

Thanks, Johannes. I believe it should be even possible to automate the parameters in Reaper and link it to TouchOSC which is also able to work as a midi controller. Though I do not know yet what I really want to do... I must say it is so interesting, I will try it next weekend and postpone my synthesis and music theory lessons for messing around with control and data flow instead... For me Renoise looks like the step sequencer and sample instrument that I am missing in Reaper (though they already have a very good sequencer baby), maybe I can integrate them in some way with your tool. :D

Sonnige Grüße aus Münster,

Martin :)

Quoting M.:

Would it be possible to control the knobs in the interface with my midi controller, or for example with a mobile app like TouchOSC (hexler.net)?

there are two options
1: VSTForx has a MIDI reciver modul. It receives MIDI messages and transforms it into parameter values.
2: You can control VSTForx's parameter via your DAW as you usally do with plugins. These DAWVSTForx paramter can be found under: Modify Scene-->Parameter-->Add Parameter-->Host Parameter

Quoting M.:

Would this plugin replace or complement the ReWire technology? I just play with the thought if that could make sense to try to connect Reaper and Renoise by using your plugin (and maybe Rewire) to get an even more powerful system with more comfort than all other daws are capable of today.


Using the RemoteChannel extension you are able to send audio and parameter data between VSTForx instances.

I would say for audio data thats no replacement, because unlike in ReWire there is no syncing between your DAW's. (hence you have to start and stop them simultaneously)

But for parameter data it could be an complement. Because you can control different plugin parameter on several DAW's from just one place.

I am fascinated... Some parts of the videos remind me in some ways of what I have seen in Sensomusic's Usine videos.

And I have some questions: Would it be possible to control the knobs in the interface with my midi controller, or for example with a mobile app like TouchOSC (hexler.net)?

I must admit that I am still a newbie to EVERYTHING related to music, zero experience and knowledge. And I am not sure, if this is a nonsense question: Would this plugin replace or complement the ReWire technology? I just play with the thought if that could make sense to try to connect Reaper and Renoise by using your plugin (and maybe Rewire) to get an even more powerful system with more comfort than all other daws are capable of today.

Quoting champagne:
The great frustration of all Logic X user is the lack of 32 bit support. someone will write a program for it and make money with it.
So, does it!
