Use AU plugin in Max/Msp

Hi everybody !

I want to create an application with which i could insert a plugin before the computer outputs (main out of the audio interface).

I think that it’s easy in Max / Msp, but i don’t know how i can use AU plugin in Max.

Do you know if it’s possible ?

Look at the vst~ object, despite name it loads AU too.

Yep, vst~. Or there’s au~, and audiounit~ that you can find online. If your plugin is slowing down your computer or crashing Max try one of the other plugin hosts.

Just to clarify, when I was asking after the documentation for audioinit~ I was informed by a C74 staffer that it was unsupported in Max6 and I should use ~vst.

I’ve forgotten to point out that vst~ has these capabilities since Max6.

Nice, good to know. I’ll re-try my luck with vst~ in 6 here.
