Topten Software Cantabile Lite

Topten Software has announced the re-release of Cantabile Lite, a free VST Host for Windows PC.

Cantabile Lite is back! The feature set has changed somewhat however.

The intention here is to make a really simple scratch pad type host. The host to go to when you just want to quickly test a plugin, or as a flexible tool for preset and bank management.

As such all recording and playback capabilities have been removed, but a whole set of new capabilities revolving around plugin, preset and bank management have been added

Changes in Cantabile Lite

  • Unlimited racks and plugins.
  • Preset morph and randomization tools – inspiration for sound designers.
  • Program organiser – easy management of plugin banks.
  • Custom controllers (sliders and buttons) on the on-screen keyboard.
  • Partial send support – ability to peel of part of a rack’s output and send to up to two other racks (Cantabile Solo inherits this too).
  • User tools – ability to launch external programs.
  • Fast session switching – where plugins are re-used between sessions.
  • Incremental save – for saving presets/banks and sessions with an automatically increasing counter in the filename.
  • A/B preset toggling.
  • Ability to set the default state for new sessions.
  • Ability to show plugin editors as topmost windows.
  • Ability to re-open plugin editors when reloading a session.
  • Ability to restore a plugin to the state as loaded from session or factory default state.
  • Ability to undo all edits to a plugin since opening the plugin editor.

Cantabile Lite 2.0 is available as freeware for Windows PC.

Designed primarily for real-time playing of virtual instruments, Cantabile includes a highly optimized audio engine to minimize system load and reduce audio drop outs.

New in v1.2 build 1256

  • New option to set the default MIDI output device
  • New option allows pass-through of unhandled incoming events to a selectable MIDI output port
  • New option allows pass-through of all incoming events to a selectable MIDI output port
  • The default behaviour of routing all output MIDI to all enabled output ports has been removed
  • Minor changes to MIDI routing to maintain consistence when muted or soloed
  • New toolbar button to stop audio engine
  • Fix for incorrect tool tip in Windows Recording Mixer toolbar button
  • Fix for inability to turn-off update checking in some cases
  • Improved update check

Cantabile costs $25 USD and a demo is available for download. The demo only runs for 1 hour before requiring restart, it won’t reload saved session files and only records in 16-bit audio.

You can also try the completely free, unrestricted Cantabile Lite. Check the features page to the differences between Cantabile and Cantabile Lite.

I like to use Cantabile Lite when testing plugins, it’s light and easy to use. (that’s why most screenshots of GUI-less plugins at rekkerd.org have the Cantabile GUI).
