Warning: Display title "foobar2000:Components/VST 2.x/3.x Adapter (foo_dsp_vst3)" overrides earlier display title "foobar2000:Components/VST 2.x/3.x Adapter (foo dsp vst3)".


Allows VST effects to be used as DSPs in foobar2000.


Allows both 32-bit and 64-bit effects to be used in all foobar2000 versions. VST code is loaded into a separate process so VST bugs can't crash foobar2000.

Best used with foobar2000 1.6.14 or newer - shows VST names in DSP manager, allows live configuration change without VST restart.

It can also be used as a visualization, especially with audio analysis VSTs.
