    VST Host for VI's that likes multi processors?

    Help oh wise PC people! Does anyone know of a stable multi-processor VST host for VI's? I have a quad-core Xeon that seems to be very picky. Vstack crashes and also I tried Brainspawn's forte. Forte at least was happy some what until I started to adjust the buffer sizes since I was getting alot of pops and clicks (the VI's have no problems running in stand-alone). Any ideas?

    I use Reaper. I was on the same hunt for a VSTi host. Tried Forte, Cantabile, Plogue, etc. Nothing comes close. It's a full DAW program, but I only use it to host FX and instruments. Unbelievably processor efficient. I'm running 8 instances of Altiverb plus GVI and the CPU never goes above 50% with a 256 buffer setting (intel 3ghz core 2 duo, Windows XP). I also use a Frontier Design Dakota card for audio, which has a very efficient ASIO driver.

    Reaper LOVES multiprocessors - so much so that you can tweak the program to handle them in a variety of ways.

    It has no copy protection and payment is on the honor system.
