SAVIHost

SAVIHost

SAVIHost

SAVIHost is a simplified equivalent to VSTHost whose sole purpose is to load only one VST instrument. To make it work, the executable file savihost.exe has to be located in the same directory where it lies the VST plugin's DLL file that you want to load. Then you have to rename savihost.exe with the same name of that DLL file; for example, if the DLL file is called PPG Wave.dll, savihost.exe has to be renamed to PPG Wave.exe. Finally, you can execute the application to automatically load the VST plugin.
