|Given that Wavosaur doesn't require any registry changes, you can run it direct from a USB key on any machine you like, which is nice.
However, by default, the VST directory uses the fully qualified path (eg, C:\VST Plugins), not so handy if the driver letter changes depending on the machine you're plugging your USB key into, you have to rummage around for the VST folder.
A useful way round this is to create a VST folder on your USB key in the root, and make the following amendment to the wavosaur.cfg file
C:\VST or whatever it happens to be
That'll reference a directory in the root of the drive you're running the application from. Alternatively, if you use it without the '\' character, you can set the VST directory to be a subdirectory that Wavosaur is located in, ie:
will refer to a VST directory located at
X: being the letter of your USB key drive.
Obviously, a point to note, commercial VSTs won't work on a foreign machine if they need to be registered first. That said, there's plenty of freeware VSTs that'll do the job nicely, and now you can take them with you.
