vst instrument loaded at opening of patch

July 2, 2010 | 5:26 pm

Is there a way to load a vst instrument when loading the patch? Maybe a script?

just specify it in the vst~ object, like [vst~ myawesomevst.vst].

Thank you, this works well. BTW when there is a VST instrument named xxx 5.vst with a space, for those who follow this post you can rename the vst to get the name in one word because the vst object does not read names with a space. Since one of my instruments does not want to be renamed, you can put brackets like "xxx 5.vst" and it will work.
Thanks Ben

The same goes for filenames everywhere, I believe. you can use [tosymbol] or put things in quotes. With a space, the object (sfplay~, buffer~, vst~, coll, whatever) thinks the next term is the next argument, just like any other programming language does. Guess this is why nerds everywhere love_the_underscore… it’s just… safer :)

cool….just had the same problem. of course it is like with filenames – but I forgot it cause all my Plug Ins’ names were just 1 word except: PSP 608 MultiDelay. the vst~ didn’t eat that and I wondered why. Now I know.
You just use "PSP 608 MultiDelay".

Thanx guys. Sometimes it’s so easy but u can’t see it ;-)
