Fxpansion VST-DX Adapter 2.1Although we would never venture to say that Mac users have all the fun, the Mac certainly has an edge on the PC in certain categories. One of these categories is the ability to use VST plug-in effects: the plug-in standard on the PC is DirectX, and only a handful of Windows programs can utilize the many excellent VST plug-ins on the market.
Fxpansion's VST-DX Adapter utility changes all that by converting VST plug-ins into DirectX format, allowing PC users to access the same versatile tools their Mac counterparts have been enjoying for some time. As long as your audio software supports DirectX format, as most do, you can enhance your audio toolbox with dozens of free and commercial VST plug-ins.
VST-DX Adapter is mostly transparent to the user. There are no fancy bells or whistles here; this utility is simply a straightforward, hard-working tool that performs an extremely important task. After installing VST-DX Adapter, you will see the program listed in your software's DirectX plug-in menu. Simply click on Adapter, and when its screen appears, load any of the VST plug-ins you have on your system. Don't worry about adding latency to the effects-processing chain; Adapter does not affect timing. This excellent utility will open the door to the exciting world of VST plug-ins for every PC user.
