As a VST/AU plugin, Minihost Modular can be used to simply extend your existing DAW software with a powerful modular environment. Minihost Modular bares some similarities to FL Studio's Patcher but has an extended capability as a self contained host.
This looks very promising. This is especially useful for DAWs with limited routing and encapsulating capabilities like Logic Pro. Sometimes you want to create a complex chain to achieve a great sounds without taking up half a dozen of DAW's mixer channels.
