DX Rack VB-AUDIO's FFX-4 - http://perso.wanadoo.fr/vb-audio/us/products/dxrack/dxrack.htm
(DL link is on the bottom part of the page)

It's freeware.

With this DX plugin, you'll be able to load four or more plugins into use on Creative WaveStudio, instead of one (which is normally the only possibility).

NOTE: You can also 'chain' the FFX-4 to multiple FFX-4 racks --> load one instance of FFX-4 into a rack, and get a new rack into use. ;)

All kind of DX plugins you can find and download for example from http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/2663/ctwsffx47vo.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us[/img] width="799"> (http://www.kvraudio.com/get.php?mode=results&st=adv&soft=e&type%5B%5D=0&f=dx&fe=dx&win=&free=&sf=0&receptor=&sort=&rpp=00]KVR[/url] ( couple of DX (freeware) effect plugins is listed behind this link), HitSquad, AudioMelody.

An example using multiple DX plugins.


To extend CT WaveStudio to use VST plugins too, you need to install a VST-DX Wrapper like the one from http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/2678/ctffx4vstdx9lq.jpg" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us[/img] width="279"> (http://www.spinaudio.com/downloads.php?download_type=3&download_id=33 ]SpinAudio which allows use of one VST plugin at the time (freeware).

To get more VST plugins into use, you need a VST console/chainer plugin like CTAF's MultiFXVST (freeware), Xlutop Chainer (commercial), etc. installed too.
I used energyXTE (effect) on this example below.

On WaveStudio - load the FFX-4, load the VST-DX Wrapper into FFX-4, load the console/chainer into VST-DX Wrapper (like I did load energyXTE).

On my example the signal path is WaveStudio_Output --> Voxengo Stereo Touch --> RoomMachine844 --> 6 band EQ --> Voxengo SPAN (spectrum analyzer) --> Gate --> Output to sound card.

An example using both DX and VST plugins.


Now, there are 00's of freeware VST plugins available @ KVR ("http://www.kvraudio.com/get.php?mode=results&st=adv&soft=e&type%5B%5D=0&f=vst&fe=vst&win=&free=&sf=0&receptor=&sort=&rpp=00)...
