Amped Studio online DAW supports VST plugins
Amped Studio

Online digital audio workstation (DAW) music production apps are always hamstrung because they can’t use powerful VST plugins that offer noise reduction, auto-tune or sampled instruments.

Amped Studio has announced that it has solved that problem, albeit in a limited way, with a new experimental update called VST/Remote. It allows you to run 64-bit VST2 plugins (effects or synths) on macOs or Windows 10 systems. There are some serious limitations, however. It supports no other formats or operating systems, only one plugin can be active in a project at a time and VST parameter automation won’t work.

The company already offers web-based WAM (Web Audio Module) plugins but wants to give users more choice. “Although our main focus is to continue to develop and support WAMs, providing our users with the option of adding their favourite VSTs to Amped Studio is a great option,” Amped Studio’s Bil Bryant told MusicRadar. If you’re interested, you can grab the new beta release with VST/Remote here.
