How to use PC VST instruments on OSX?

Hi,

Is it possible to use PC VST instruments (no effects!) on OSX?

I allready found these 2 tutorials but it seems they are only for VST effects, no instruments:
Free App Lets You Run Windows VST’s In Your Mac DAW

and this one Windows VST plugins on a Mac VFX software - YouTube

Hi,

maybe Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac - Apple Store (U.S.)?

Best regards,
Tobi

Yeah, but you'll need Parallels Desktop
Ok it's Ableton, but you only need the correct midi settings in Cubase.

Cool! Thanks
But what to do when there's no stand alone vsti version...just a dll file?

You're grasping, but there is no magic solution, erol.

VSTs call parts of the os, you can't just 'load' it into osx.

If you want to run vst's or vsti's on an osx machine, you have to load Windows on it, either through Parallels or Bootcamp.
