how to reset vst~ to it's starting point

    Hi, everybody,
    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!

      "plug xxx" should work.

      Thanks for your reply. unfortunately, when I send "plug [some plug that is not existing, like 'xxx']" to vst~, the console gives me a "can't find plug-in xxx" but the previously loaded vst instrument still remains loaded :/

      There is no message that will unload plugin from vst~ object. If for whatever reason You need to do so, then create a bpatcher with vst~ object inside, and load / unload the whole patcher, with all the consequences. Or create vst~ object and it's conections using scripting. Or load some dummy vst plugin which does nothing.

      seems that has been forgotten during the rewrite^^
      btw, if you attempt to load a .dll file, which isnt a vst plug-in, max7 windows chrashes.
