i wonder if it's possible to reset the vst~ object so i don't have any plugin loaded. I use the script available in maxhelp. For now i set each time "no plug-in" message if i want to throw out the plugin from the object - but this is a dirty method - i always then get "no plugin called "no plug-in" found". I also don't want anything like "bypass" or "disable" because it doesn't kick out the plugin. Any suggestions? thanks!
