I just started using Max two weeks ago (a dream has come true since I found out what one can do with it!) and have a simple question (can't really find it in the manuals):
I want to write a simple vst/au plugin that recieves automation data from the host program (NI's Kore) and changes it to midi data that is send out a hardware midi interface.
So what do I need to purchase from Cycling 74 apart from Max to make this work?
Do I need MSP (since I don't need audio processing or the plugmidiin object for my plugin) to develop this plugin?
Do I need to buy pluggo to write the plugin?
Will my plugin work standalone or in a kind of pluggo runtime environment? If a runtime env. is required, is it free or is full pluggo required to run it?
Thanks in advance for your answers!
