Anyway to build a Device to "house" VST MIDI effects such as

Post by kompletemail » Wed Jan 22, 2014 2:31 am

I would like to know if its possible to build a Max device that will "house" a VST MIDI effect (a chord generator) such as Cthulhu
I would like to drop it in before my VST synth but at the moment the manufacture of the Cthulhu hasn't made it able to be dropped in before the VST synth (like Massive).

It seems the only chord generators and scale plugins that can be dropped in before the VST synth/instrument or those native to ableton live.

My question is can I build a device that will house or shell a plug in so Ableton thinks it is a MIDI effect plugin?

This is what I got so far.

Using the [vst~] object you can load any VST into a M4L device and handle its output (audio or midi).

where can I find this device?

I can't locate it online or in Ableton.

I found some text to copy into Max MSP to create a device to do this but I have no idea of how to convert it to a M4L patch or device.

I uploaded it here if you could help me get this into ableton that would be awesome .

but this looks like an audio device to me.

I want a midi effect device to load a plugin into the M4L device.

In an open m4l patch type "n" and then "vst", then the object Broc is talking about will be added to your patch.
Right click on it to access its help file.
But, I think you should first check the max/map integrated tutorials.
Good luck.

I have seen what he was talking about and I got something even closer to that that I think I want/can build..

check out the .amxd I uploaded and see what I mean..

It opens up to load a vst etc..

There just isn't much help around here I posted this like a week and barely got 1 or 2 responses.

I will go check out the tutorials your talking about.

Is there a website for it?
