Panning of individual notes using a VST


    May 29 2019 | 8:50 pm
    Hello I want to trigger MIDI notes that will be played through a VST (NI Absynth for now). I would like to control the panning of each individual note using control messages to the VST. When I play a note and then a second one (while the first one is still playing), and I change the pan parameter, all notes change their panning position. Is there a way that I can control the panning parameter independently for each note in a way that is CPU friendly (I imagine that duplicating the VST a 100 times would put a lot of strain on the CPU).

      I think this depends on your VST since it's outputs are typically going to be stereo/mono. Basically you're asking to split the audio output each time vst produces (or ingests) an additional + simultaneous midi message.
      You could use the mc.vst~ object but that does technically spawn multiple instances of the VST as you are trying to avoid. See mc.vst~ helpfile below (w/4 instances)
