standard plugins as patchers

    Feb 03 2006 | 6:18 pm
    This is a fairly silly question but one worth asking: Are any of the standard Pluggo plugins available to look at as patchers within Max/MSP? I have purchased Pluggo, but ultimately am interested in using the standard plugins as jumping boards for developing my own work and at the same time make the use of the plugins an educational experience. This is the main reason I have avoided 'canned' sound processing until now: you don't learn a whole lot about sound processing in using them, but on the other hand I feel as if I am wasting a lot of time reinventing the wheel in trying to develop my own sound processing modules in Max. If you wish to reveal your secrets in private, you can contact me off-list: Thanks. Justin Yang

      Hi Justin, While we don't make our Pluggo source available, I recommend having a look at the InVSTigations tutorials on the Cycling'74 website. You should also check out the synth-building tutorials at, the Pluggo Development Guide and all the MSP help patches. That should give you plenty to get started with.
