Ian ... AFIK that is not the case. Programs 'progressing' to VSTi plugin status are the exception.
Virtual Studio Technology was developed by Steinberg about 20 years ago. It provided a development kit for initially development of audio and MIDI plugins for use in a DAW. I believe subsequently the VST instrument plugins were developed. Initially these were things like softsynths, i.e., audio triggered by MIDI, and samplers like Kontakt.
Somewhere along this timeline ... VST is now at v.3 with v.2.4 still extant ... VST instruments with sequencing capability came along as VSTi MIDI instruments. Some of these plugins, like RapidComposer were developed from free standing like named programs, as is BIAB VSTi, but the majority, including to the best of my knowledge Scaler, were purpose built as VSTi for plugin use in a DAW.
Not sure if this is a very clear exposition nor entirely historically accurate, but this is my understanding from following these developments over the past 15 years or so.

Thanks very much, DFT. I will look at it.
It has occurred to me since first posting that many plug-ins have 'application ancestry' - as indeed in the case of the Biab plugin we've been hearing about in the past few days? Does anyone know if this is/was the case with Scaler ?
