The VST Workspace
The Workspace is a panel that contains the active audio pipeline which is made of a chain of VST effects hooked end-to-end.
Workspace Panel
The dark center panel has the graphic representation of the audio pipeline or chain. This panel contains VST effects widgets which represent a single instance of a VST effect. It also contains connecting lines and arrows indicating the flow of audio in the pipeline.

By default, the workspace will contain the "MorphVOX DSP" effects widget.  This represents the instance of the MorphVOX Pro DSP engine.  This cannot be removed, though you can add VST effects above (in front) or below (behind) the "MorphVOX DSP" effects widget.

To add a new effect, simply select an effect in the Available Effects List and click on the "Add Effect" button.  This will add a new VST effects widget to the end of the chain on the workspace.  To remove an effect that is in the workspace, click on the Close Button ("x"  icon) on the VST effects widget.



You can also open the Graphics Editor by clicking on the Edit Button (wrench icon).   This opens up the graphical interface for the VST plug-in, allowing you to tweak the effect.  The Bypass Button toggles whether or not this effect will be bypassed from the audio pipeline.  A bypassed effect will have no influence over the audio pipeline.

The VST effects widget can be dragged around on the workspace (by grabbing the top of the widget with a mouse-down selection) for re-ordering of the audio pipeline or for visually organizing the workspace.

The Mix slider provides control over the mixture of the source audio signal to the effected audio signal.  When it is moved completely to the right, the audio output will contain only the effected audio signal.

The Gain slider provides control of the audio output volume from this effect.  The range of the control is from zero to 200% with default in the middle (100%).
Clear Workspace Button
  Removes all VST effecst from the list with the exception of the "MorphVOX DSP" module
