creating pluin with max

    hello im trying to create a plugin with max, i thought that building it would be the easy part of the process but when i look for it in the ableton live vst list its not there. i even tryed to build the first tutorial from the pluggo tutorials but none of my hosts is willing to open it for me. maybe im neglecting a basic thing, but im sitting here for along time working on it and cant find that thing... thank you

      are you sure the built file (dll or shared library or whatnot) is in the path that live is searching for vst plugins?

      very sure i built a dll and i save it in my vst folder that live scans and rescans when i told it to.

      have you tried other hosts? there's one called vsthost (search for it on google), that is intended for testing and such. it allows you to just open a single specific dll file. unfortunately it is only for Win32, but i know that there are equivalents for OSX.

      i did try with nuendo, he shows me the plug in the plugin information but wont open it. ill try now with a host like you said

      i wont work even with the vsthost, i downloaded the pluggo junior pack now and they do appear in my live vst list...

      the problem has to be with the dll then. check the examples and make sure that there aren't any problems in your build script.
