at the Cycling 74 Wiki

additional things

local files:

  • max teaching examples/Tremelo-vst.maxpat (gen~)
  • max teaching examples/vst-tester.maxpat


  • vstsdk2.4/public_sdk/samples/vst2.x/MyVSTPlugin
  • VST requires all paramaters to go from 0-1.0 so you need to scale them in gen~
  • There are a ton of compiler warnings in Xcode. And a syntax error that you can autocorrect.
  • Restart Max, if you make changes to the plugin
