Building VST Plugins
I’m still a bit confused.
here’s what confuses me (first sentence, well and the second one, if they’re in max and they work like in the past, then why don’t they work with the first release? maybe i’m just stupid…):
in the changelist it doesn’t mention that vst building has been fixed: http://www.cycling74.com/version/version_5_0_4.html
and another question, do vst plugins also require the microsoft c runtime library? or can they be distributed normally.

i have another question:
did i get it correct, that pluggo plugins are basically VST/AU Plugins with additional features.
I can build normal VST Plugins with Max/MSP and they don’t require the user to install anything additional.
I can build pluggo VST Plugins with enhanced features like bus sending, the user will have to install the pluggo runtime.
also, is midi output possible when building a vst plugin?

Thanks for your reply, Stefan
ok, i got confused by the sentence “If you want to tweak your own plug-ins, you might want to consider Max/MSP, which includes everything you need to develop your own plug-ins.”
so i thought i can build plugins with max only. but i see the pluggo runtime is always required. hmm.
so one last question, is it possible to include/bundle the runtime next to the vst file so the user doesn’t even have to run the installer for the runtime? making it look like a “regular” plugin?

Sure – if you build your own installer we don’t mind if you include the Pluggo components in it.

ok i get it now, thanks for the replies.
i was hoping the runtime could simply reside in the same directory as the plugin file. the problem is, that my software uses a fixed installer: download files > put in subdirectory.
