AU Host?

December 29, 2006 | 5:50 pm

Is there a MSP object that functions as an AU (audio Unit) host
similar to the way vst~ works?
I’m enjoying using the "Synful" Orchestra Synth – hosted by Apple’s
AU Lab – but would prefer to incorporate Synful’s outputs into other
MSP processing. (I’m finding the vst version of Synful often crashes
Max.)
Thanks in advance.

as far as i know, unfortunately not.
you would have to go the soundflower (cycling74) or jack osx
(www.jackosx.com)route in order to get that into max.

I still have the full code of an AU host software.
I think it’s time to build an [AU~] for the Mac version of MaxMSP.
What do you think?
Suggestions?

Cheers,

I for one would be most grateful. soundflower is not always a
solution when one wants to also incorporate live inputs and _not_ use
an external sound interface.

I’ve always been amazed that Max/MSP /doesn’t/ support Audio Units! Yes,
please.

Thank you! This can be really useful.

Best regards,

[au~] is lower on CPU than logic pro because it does not
open up silly cocoa view windows, thats the whole trick. :)

Once setup, close the window :-)

[au~] displays the custom views of Carbon AU.
Like any other Carbon host, [au~] only displays the generic Carbon view (white background) of Cocoa AU plug-ins.

All the tests I did with AU effects have been done ‘AU Lab versus MaxMSP’, AU Lab being a Cocoa host. My main concern was about the latencies.

i would be suprised if latency is something which depends
on the host but i am always willing to learn.
