Virtual Studio Technology. The audio engine created by Steinberg for their Cubase program. It sort of hangs an environment of mixing, effects and EQ over the audio output of Cubase.
Video Server Technology. Video Server Technology is an element of the Video Computing Platform (VCP) from SGI. VST is the clip serving platform element of VCP. The core VST software provides management of a simple database of clips (the clip cache), a control API for managing and operating the VST, and a core library which supports various external interface modules.
Plug-in format developed by Steinberg for their Cubase program. Compatible with many other programs now including Peak and LogicAudio. Note there are both PC and a MAC versions which are not cross-platform compatible, though many VST plug-ins have versions for both.
The VST plug-in technology is an interface standard for connecting audio effect plug-ins to audio editors and hard-disk recording systems. A VST plug-in is a real-time audio processing module that can be hosted by any VST compatible host software like Renoise. VST therefore exists in 2 versions: as a host (that accepts VST plug-ins), or as a plug-in (that needs VST host software).
