What is Cloud VST?

Cloud VST is technology that uses dedicated hardware and software to place sophisticated audio processing and music production functionality on a network server, and allows this functionality to be used via the network. This means that the capabilities you need will be available from a wide variety of client devices whenever you wish.

By bringing together hardware, software, and network services in this way, we can provide new methods of music production and audio processing to more people than ever before --- not only music producers, but also technical developers working with sound and music, service providers, and everyday users.
