mxj and pluggos


    May 11 2006 | 12:02 am
    Is it possible to include mxj's within a pluggo?
    I get no errors when building my plug (either with or without specifying my class file specifically in the collective builder), but I'm getting "class not found" errors in my plug's Message window when I try to use it in a VST host app.
    Thanks, Dan

      i've done some pluggos with mxj, but I can only make than work if the classes is both included & in the plugge support folder ?
      if I don't include, the AU-Pluggoscan will crash. if the files is not in the pluggo's searchpath, it wont work ?

      Thanks, that did it - I copied my .class file in /Library/Application Support/C74 Plug-In Support/Pluggo Support/ , or even a subfolder of that folder, and it worked.

      (on Mac....) The default pluggo lookup path is now /Library/Application Support/ C74 Plug-in Support/ make sure your mxj claasses are in /Library/Application Support/C74 Plug-in Support/Java/classes/ and it works for me.... Any plugin installation should place any needed non-standard classes in this folder, or perhaps in plug-named folder under this?
      Please correct me , if I am wrong!

      Thanks Charlie - yes, I got it to work by putting my classes in /Library/Application Support/C74 Plug-In Support/Pluggo Support/ , or even a subfolder of that folder.
      Didn't need to do the "/Java/classes/" stuff either.

      One thing to keep in mind with all of this. When you host a plug-in in a non-Max environment, the C74 Plug-in Support folder acts as the C74 folder and everything in it can be found. When you host a plug- in in Max, then Max uses it's own C74 folder - and most things in the C74 Plug-in Support folder will not be found (including stuff in the Java folders).
      Dan's approach is probably the best practice because the Pluggo Support folder (and subfolders thereof) in C74 Plug-in Support get added to Max's searchpaths automatically when you load a Pluggo-based plug-in in vst~.
      In other words, by putting it in Pluggo Support then the file can be accessed by all hosts including Max. -Tim
