What would be the best host to use as a \"player\" for GPO VST plugs? I can\'t use GPO Studio, because it doesn\'t support individual outputs for each channel. Sonar supports that, and I believe it would work, but I\'m wondering if there is something else that is designed for playback without the overhead of being a sequencing/recording program. That way, I could run Overture on one machine with 4 or more instances of GPO VST running in a player program. This must work on a PC as we do not use Apples here. The PC will have 2 gigs ram, and the fastest available P4 processor.
I have used Bidule (www.plogue.com), Forte (www.brainspawn.com), and Chainer. Bidule and Forte have free versions that you can try. Bidule is really more than just a host, it is a virtual studio where you can do complex midi and audio processing, routing and manipulation. Forte is the best in my opinion for a easy to use vst host. They have three versions that allow more Vst modules to be loaded than the free version.
