Virtual Studio Technology (VST)
Techopedia explains Virtual Studio Technology (VST)Virtual studio technology is a software emulation of various sound recording equipment and instruments; it makes use of digital signal processing in order to simulate specific equipment. VST often comes as a plugin for a digital audio workstation, providing it with the additional functionality desired.
There are many types of VST plugins, which can be mostly classified as instruments (VSTi) or effects. VSTi does exactly what its name implies, as it emulates different musical instruments so that the recording engineer or musician does not need to procure the specific instrument or find someone who can play it. Modern VST plugins provide their own custom GUI, but older ones tended to rely on the UI of the host software.
