I’m a long-time user of MUTOLS MU.LAB, a great lightweight DAW with some pretty cool modular features, and I’m pretty much used to having total freedom when building effect chains.
If you like building crazy FX and instrument chains, and your VST host lacks in modular capabilites, then VSTForx is certainly a freeware tool you should check out.
VSTForx is available both as VST and VSTi and it basically allows you to load all your favorite VST effects and instruments inside it and connect them any way you like using virtual cables. It also comes with a set of neat tools like sequencers, switches, etc.
The plugin is currently in beta phase, so you will have to register as a beta tester on the VSTForx website and get your free download.
