What I'd like (and do tell me if it's already possible) is to have the existing Pluggos (which I paid for) as max patchers, so that I can look at how they work, and incorporate them into my own patches. Is that something that C74 might consider?
About the only thing I use a DAW for these days is mixing and editing. And I tend to mostly use Waves and iZotope (ie eq, compression, reverb etc). Everything else happens in max.
Where I _did use Pluggo was inside max patches. Not all the time, but it did occasionally allow me to get an effect that I perhaps wouldn't have thought of myself, or do something that I didn't have the time to figure how how to programme myself.
So if the plugs are dead and gone, would there be any harm to C74 in opening them up?
