    Hey guys I am a Audio Engineering student progressing on to 4th year (BSc hons) I done a plug-in for my 3rd year Research project, and I am looking at focusing and specialising in Acoustics and dsp Engineering in my career. My idea for my dissertation is to develop a daw/production environment with gen and juce. Is it possible/viable to use gen with juce via export to create a daw.
    Answers will be greatly appreciated

      While working on a synth plugin using gen-exported code I had to learn that gen quickly comes to a limit if things are not dsp, for example handeling the incomming midi wasn't really possible to do in gen~, so I had to do it in JUCE. So for a DAW, there will be a lot more non DSP stuff than on a plugin, so gen~ maybe isn't the best for it. You could maybe do it to create the onboard fx and instruments, but I guess for the DAW itself it would be easier to build it in juce (max and korg gadget are made with juce, so it should definitly possible to make a daw using juce).
