Chainer v1.0 beta released

Chainer is a multi-effect and multi-instrument rack for musicians and sound designers. It's a VST host that runs as a standalone application, VST effect and VST instrument.

Chainer allows you to stream the ASIO or VST input signal through up to 10 chains of VST effects so you can use your PC as a realtime multi-effect processor.

In addition Chainer enables you to play several VST instruments at the same time. You can layer several instruments to create complex sounds or you may play instruments on different MIDI channels: Chainer turns your PC into a multi-timbral sound generator.

Some features of Chainer

  • VST(i) and ASIO host.
  • Standalone application and VST(i) plugin.
  • Turns your PC into:
    • Realtime multi-effect device.
    • Multi-timbral sound generator.
  • Streams the ASIO/VST input signal through up to 10 chains of VST effects.
  • Several VST instruments playable simultaneously.
  • VST instruments playable on different MIDI channels.
  • 100 slots for VST(i) plugins per instance of Chainer.
  • Chainer and VST plugin parameters controllable through MIDI CC messages and VST automation.
  • Creates 16/24/32bit multi-samples from your VST instruments (WAV, SF2).
