Metaplugin by DDMF is an easy to use, yet powerful modular plugin chainer. It’s accurately called, “A plugin that loads other plugins.” A good workflow is vital for doing eMusic, especially me. I’m a teacher, who uses music in class. My students have the attention span of a housefly — so I need to work fast or I lose them. I can’t afford to fumble around trying to locate, link, launch, etc. Metaplugin rescues me! It helps keep my system simple, fast, and powerful.

My workflow is as follows: Launch DAW, load Metaplugin (instrument or effect), drag the plugins I need into an area of the interface, drag cables between them to make the desired connections (audio and midi), adjust wet/dry ratio/level, and create music!

FABULOUS FEATURES

• Re-sizeable interface
• Custom built chains can be saved
• Host VST and AU plugin together — in one place
• No noticeable CPU hit
• Responsive, friendly developers
THOUGHTS
• Amazing price considering what it does and how well it does it
• Adding VST3 support would be a nice update
CONCLUSION
If there is such thing as a man’s man, then Metaplugin is a plugin’s plugin! Connecting plugins is effortless with Metaplugin, and the possibilities are only limited by the user’s own collection and creativity! It is visual, customizable, and lets you focus on creating music instead of being lost in a tangled web of virtual cable madness. I highly recommend Metaplugin to any eMusician, mixer, producer, sound designer, DJ, etc., who uses more than one plugin at a time. Tommy Zai gives Metaplugin several side-chained thumbs up. Thank you, DDMF, for creating such an innovative, time saving plugin!
