creating AU plug-ins


    Jan 19 2006 | 12:24 am
    hi all,
    after trawling through these new (and rather funky!) forums i get the idea that it is possible to create AU plugins using MaxMsp?
    Have i got the wrong end of the stick entirely.
    also while i'm on the subject.. are there any tutorials anywhere about the whole plug-in creation thing? I can't find it mentioned in any of the max/msp documentation?
    be well

      Hi Duncan,
      You're right. You'll have to look at the Pluggo Documentation.
      There's only a couple new objects for you to learn.
      Have fun!

      There was a folder distributed with an old version of Pluggo, called
      PluggoDoc, which contained GettingStarted.pdf, PluggoDevGuide31.pdf and
      PlugInsReference.pdf.
      I can't find them anymore on Cycling' 74's.
      Ask me if you want.

      This topic is better suited to the Pluggo forum/list, so I'm moving it there now.

      I'm not sure if there's direct links or not to these documents anymore elswewhere on the site (we'll check and make sure), but in the meantime, you can check here:
      Max 3.1

      Max 3.5
      http://www.cycling74.com/download/Pluggo35GettingStarted.pdf
      here's a link to the dev guide:

      that dev document doesn't seem to exist anymore.. but i'm not sure if it's relevant.. i don't want to create a pluggo plug in, i want o create an AU plug in, i.e. i don;t want to have to intall pluggo to use it? is this actually possible or does max/msp only let you build VST and pluggo plugins?
      be well

      Choose "Build Collective/Application/Plug-in" from the
      File menu, add any files you need to include, click on
      Build, and then select "VST Plug-in" from the pop-up
      menu at the bottom of the Save dialog box. That will
      build your plug-in (the resulting plug-in will run under
      AU and RTAS, too. Don't worry.
      The plug-in you build will require that you have either Pluggo
      or the free Pluggo Runtime (available from the Cycling '74 site)
      installed.

      and i just put it in the Library/Audio/Plugins/components folder ? or does pluggo have a special one?

      You'll need to put it into the Library/Audio/Plugins/VST/Pluggo folder
      and then run Pluggo AU Scan. While plugins are deceptively simple to
      make, I highly recommend looking at the dev-manual, as many of these
      questions will be answered therein.
      Cheers,
