Topten Software re-releases Cantabile Lite

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.
