You sent this question to the Max and the pluggo list, and I still don’t
know what you are looking for.
This is a bit like "does there exist a program to browse the web?"
Of course there are plenty plug-ins, but you’re on the Max list, and a
question like "what do you guys and girls use for real time sampling"
would probably give you an hint that most "live samplers/loopers" on
this list probably build their tool directly in Max.
If your question is limited to VST’s, the most important information is
missing: which platform are you on.
And there is a family of web searching engines, which give an answer to
your question fast. Especially if you read the list regulary, you’d come
across Mr. 110 aka Roman Thilenius who devoted his live to Mac
plug-ins… ( http://www.vst-mac.info/ )
Another resource for looping/live sampling: http://www.loopers-delight.com/ , highly recommended
You’ll find a lot of infos to this topic (hardware, software, plug-ins)
and a lot of very different opinions…
My opinion: forget plug-ins, do all in Max ;-)
(though there is nothing wrong with using VST’s in Max…)
