I am trying to get Max/MSP to remember vst presets for my patch. Every time I close the patch and re-open, the vst goes to default. The vst I am trying to use is called alchemy (free version). Does anyone know how to get max/msp to remember vst presets, does it vary for different vst’s and audio unit plugins? Here is the link to download alchemy player. http://www.camelaudio.com/AlchemyPlayer.php
I think the "write preset to disk" that Roman pointed out is the only effective way. You could save/recall every parameter in the VST in max. However, there are usually many parameters in a vst (such as mseg’s and graphical parts) that are not available directly in max, but are available in FXP/FXB.
If anyone knows of a way to save an FXP/FXB file inside of max rather than on disk, it would be lovely to find out.
The problem with automating preset loading with vst~ is that there is no way for vst~ to signal that a plug-in is done loading.
It would be great if vst~ could do this, but as has been discussed before, this is a VST issue, and not one that Cycling74 can do anything about.
Search the forum, because this has come up before, but I’m not sure that anyone came up with a satisfactory solution,
