VST plugins on Mac OS X

There’s actually a free (as in beer) software for Mac OS X that hosts VST plugins compiled for Windows (it uses WINE under the hood). It is the editor software for the V-Machine, a rack unit that can host VST plugins. You can download it from the manufacturer’s website. MIDI input works out of the box, but there is no way to configure the audio output, so you have to use Mac OS’s own “Audio MIDI Setup” application to select the default destination. By using SoundFlower you can effictively integrate VFX and thus the Windows VST plugins into the DAW of your choice. All without a Windows installation and without paying any extra money. Enjoy the free VST plugins out there. I know I will. 😉
