VST creation, how to?
I was helping out a friend by creating a little patch making her able to
trigger samples by playing an acoustic instrument over a certain loudness.
The patch itself works fine in max/msp.
All along I figured I would use Rewire to connect this thing with Ableton
Live as the host – the main program she is using.
Problem seems to be that Ableton will only send MIDI to Max and get audio
back, and I need quite the opposite.
So now I’m figuring creating a VST is the way to go, but I can’t seem to
find much information about this, other than "Save as plugin".
So, basically I need to input sound and send out MIDI.
Any pointers of where to look or what to do??
Well you can get audio from Max to Live with Soundflower:
and to build VST plugins you need the documentation:
As for converting audio to midi in the plugin world it can be done and good luck with that.
Misread yr post a little, you can’t get midi into Live? Your instruments in Live should show up as midi outputs in Max. Alternatively, Max should show up as midi inputs in Live.
Hey Rocky G
Thanks for your respone.
I did find the pluggo docs, and I have a functional VST plugin now that
works great :)
As for the whole Rewire thing, I’m gonna save that for another day, for now
VST is a much smarter approach anyways.
