"How to use an Intel PC stick as a standalone VST host / VST player /synthesizer. Table of contents below! Intel PC sticks are USB-stick-sized X86 PCs running Windows Home Edition. In this video, I'm installing a DAW and some popular VST plugins on one of them, seeing if there's enough performance to create a track with multiple virtual instruments. Also: using this as a monitor-less device booting your favourite software synth or plugin, playable with an external MIDI controller.
