VST Clear Question

Oct 20 2008 | 9:00 am

Hello all,

Just a simple question, that i can’t seem to figure out. It may be easy mind
I dont know whether there is already a post on here about this question, but have looked quite far with no results

I am building a noise generator, yet again.
But this time have implemented VST into it, so i can load VST’s on my machine. It is all working fine and dandy.
But would like to know a way to clear the selection of VST.
I have a load VST and a view VST button on, which work fine. But would like something that can clear the selection, or even bypass it.

i think you can just send vst~ the name on a plugin that doesn’t exist e.g. plug "no plugin". That way it will unload whatever plugin is currently loaded

No, but thanks anyhow for your help

I need something that is pretty quick, basically like the open VST messages, but a clear message. Have tried stuff, but am just wondering what else there could be.

Thanks again

>No, but thanks anyhow for your help


what exactly do you want to do? you can bypass with the bypass 1 message or "unload" in the way i described

Oh sorry. I didn’t understand your answer as clearly as i thought, sorry.

I figured out the bypass 1 message. A few moments ago

Again, thanks for your time and sorry for the silliness ;)

Just send an empty or bogus plug message and it’ll clear, as oli has stated.

Is there a more elegant way to do that so one could avoid the message "vst~ can’t find plug-in bogus" in the Max window?
