   Amulet VST to DirectX Adaptor    
     Since Steinberg released their VST plug-in development kit, many third-party developers (commercial, shareware, and freeware) have released plug-ins that perform a wide variety of sonic manipulations. This is great news for VST and Wavelab owners, but until now not a lot of use to users of other DirectX-compatible applications such as Cakewalk, Sound Forge, Acid, and Cool Edit Pro.

Spotting a gap in the market, Amulet software have developed the VST to DirectX Adaptor, an easy-to-use utility that appears in all DirectShow-compatible applications, and lets you load and use VST plug-ins. It worked well for me inside every application that I tried (even inside VST and Wavelab!), and the user interface is simplicity itself - just two buttons marked Load and Hide/Show. Clicking on load opens up a standard Windows open file dialogue to let you choose a DLL plug-in file. Then you use it exactly as you would inside VST - if the plug-in window disappears behind others you click on the Show button, and once this appears the button changes to Hide for the opposite function.

The Adaptor does impose a slight extra processor overhead, but offset against getting lots more plug-ins no-one should have any cause to grumble. It even deals with those basic VST plug-ins that have no panel design of their own (like AutoPan for instance), by creating its own front panels as required. Designer Angus Hewlett is only asking $50 - sounds like a bargain to me.
