Virtual Studio Technology (VST) is een standaard voor virtuele muziekinstrumenten (VSTi) of effecten (VSTfx).
VST wordt momenteel door de meeste software voor muziekproductie ondersteund en er zijn ook programma's die enkel bestaan om een VSTi of VSTfx te "hosten".
Het is ook mogelijk om zelf deze effecten of instrumenten te ontwerpen met behulp van bijvoorbeeld Synthedit of het nieuwere SynthMaker.
Het is de meest gebruikte architectuur voor audio-plug-ins.
Smidy free! is a MIDI sequencer and DAW able to host VST 3 plugIns and external MIDI hardware side by side.

VSTHost is a program to run VST PlugIns. In contrast to the big programs (Cubase, Nuendo, Logic
come to mind), it is not a full-fledged giant sequencer package that needs many seconds just to come
up to a point where it can say “Hello”. It’s relatively small, and hopefully will stay so, and it
PlugIns. No sequencing (well, it can play back simple audio and MIDI files), no elaborate recording
facilities (although it does have a simple multitrack recorder built in). To make up for that, you can
define very complex PlugIn setups and switch between them easily.
