My heart skipped a beat when I thought this might be the paid version.

pretty much the most powerful vst out these days! for those waiting for the pro vst to show up here at audioz, google cardinal vcv. a free vst version of vcv2 somebody made. ive used it quite a bit and it is quite stable.
make music, not walls.
  Member 10.11.2021 3 123

  Resident 25.11.2015 1196
yes cardinal is a vst2
make music, not walls.
  Member 6.03.2018 738
Thanks for the tip, juxtaphon. I've seen covert references to it, but some of the VCV people are quite hostile to it so I never knew what it was called. Sadly, it won't run for me but I hope it improves.

That said, the free version works well with ReaRoute/Reaper so that's what I'm using for now.

Cardinal works for me (scroll down):
Or check for newer build: click on Actions, then builds on left, then a build such as the most recent on the right, then scroll down to files to download. I think you need to be logged in to github.

check before try .
  Member 2.02.2022 73
is cardinal just a wrapper? you still need vcv free to run it? Im not sure how to install this.
