Can't load a VST into MaxMSP

May 10, 2011 | 2:00 pm

Hello,

Out of ignorance of the program I can’t figure out why Max MSP wont load this plug in.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Audio/Audio-Plugins/HRTF-3D.shtml

When I load the vst~ object and send a "plug" message to it it lets me browse but the dll file for the plug in is greyed out.

Is there something fundamental that I am not doing or not realising?

I use Max/MSP 5 on a Mac 10.5.7 I think. The Mac is not with me at the moment and I can not remember the exact version numbers.

Thanks all!

I do belive that .dll is a windows format, you need to get a .vst version to use with a mac.

I see now. I knew .dlls were mainly Windows based but I had not idea that vst’s actually had their own .vst format.

Cubase putting dll’s into the VST folders confused me =D

Thanks for the info.
