Default why so complicated player->vsthost->soundcard

Hello,
Why there is no simple solution(as far as i know) for signal routing foobar-> any vst host ->m-audio 8 channel soundcard. Need to make complex math with stereo signal to make 8channel output. Vst host is perfect for that,vst support in foobar doesn't fit for that. The problem that the only possible way of audio is to send audio to m-audio control panel(spdif out),then back to vst host,then 8ch to m-audi outputs. WHY WHY? ASIO can work only with two devices. But i have three of them.So i have to use direct sound from player to m-audio. Any vsthost i have tried can't take input from player and output to sound card. Using virtual cables or asio or something else. This problem doesn't have people who can use vst inside foobar,then there are no issues like i have. What to use,how to route? I would like not to use direct sound driver in the chain ir it is possible.
Any help very welcome,because i have spend to much time to solve this myself ...

Thanks in advance

Did you ask foobar developers at their home forum Hydrogenaudio Forums -> foobar2000 ?

Didn't ask, but googled a lot. I even can use some other audio player,but the routing principle is the same anyway.

That is the place which foobar devs read. IMO the best source for you.

Use Reaper - it has an ASIO "driver" which routes output from another app into Reaper as an input. Your signal flow looks like

foobar -> ASIO -> Reaper -> soundcard.

Reaper is only quasi-free though. It has a free eval that doesn't expire but has a nagware splash screen.

Have you tried J. River media center?
By far, the best I've used when it comes to VST, audio driver, convulsion, etc.

Jriver looks like good quality player.
Also tried foobar -> ASIO -> Reaper -> soundcard. This had problem with ugly noise for a second when starting playback of audio file.Temporally i am using sound card audio mixer for rerouting signal to vst host.
