Is it possible? To create a VST without the use of Pluggo as a module/runtime environment so it can be used in Logic, Sonar etc…?
I only ask as I would like to create a ‘professional’ VST. I.e. one that comes with it’s own installation package and such but would not require Pluggo as a runtime component.
I will be using the Windows XP version of MaxMSP with a later port to OSX near completion. Also, how versatile can you be with a user interface? Is it possible to make a nice shiny one in photoshop with custom animations this that and the other?
Failing this, should I be using another application?
Ah, ok. Well that’s cool. So if I compile my own installer will it run a seperate installation for the Pluggo runtime or will it just install the runtime components when installing the VST "on the sly"?
I won’t be using multiple windows so that aspect’s ok, thanks for that.
Finally, if I come to select the VST in either Sonar [XP] or Logic [OS X] (the only two sequencers I have access to) will it be visible under a menu item called ‘Pluggo’ or will it just be ‘MyVST’ or something similar? I only ask as I don’t intend to install MaxMSP (student version) until my term starts as it is a time limited version.
As far as professionaly goes, well I doubt I’ll ever achieve it, but we’ll wait and see :)…
