MIDI w/ DP 8

I am desperate. I have a couple of days to do a project and can not get in to the lab @ school to work on it . We work with Digital Performer 8. My question is this... With the free DP8 download from their website and With my M-AUDIO AXIOM49 and Scarlett 18i8 interface, where is there a free MIDI instrument library that would be compatible with my hardware/software? (running windows btw) I must stress that this needs to be free or no more than $20. I don't like Digital Performer and won't use it much after i complete the work, I just have to use it to get this project finished. Please help!

it says this on the front page...
"A VSTi is a Virtual Studio Technology instrument, and is usually downloaded as a .dll file. The .dll file can then be loaded into a VSTi host and played, most often with midi."

What is this "VSTi" host?

the DAW that you run to do your recording is the host. really any program that will allow you to run the vsti is the host. Some vstis are stand alone and do not need hosts to operate.
