Actually AudioMulch is a Shareware program, it isn't free. It's designed to
be a self contained sonic workshop, with VST hosting just being an
auxilliary feature.. it doesn't do it justice to call it "a VST host" in my
view.

AudioMulch is used quite a lot for teaching at the secondary and tertiary
levels and I have had a number of reports of children as young as 7 using it
successfully in a home context.

Best wishes
