I hope I am just using an incorrect terminology whilst searching forum/google for VSTi 3 SDK code examples.
I downloaded VST3 SDK and could fire up visual studio and build the audio based examples.
I could even download the MDA plugins, build and install them, and get my Cubase LE4 to accept them / work.
That is the audio events, and block processing, I can do. But I thought later VST frameworks added midi control?
I want to handle midi (specifically I want to design a gui to give me remote control from Cubase VST of a synth).
In the meantime I did what I wanted using MS winmm.dll but I would love to investigate how to achieve similar functionality within Cubase LE4 and VST3i.
Simply, I want to create a series of sliders/knobs/buttons/drop downs to send NRPNs to some of my synths.
Is there any docs on this anywhere in VST3i… what terms should I be googling for please?
I made the mistake of buying some VST3 books, that were infact nothing to do with the SDK - instead some branchline of the Cubase family.
Sorry if this has been asked 1,000 of times before, but I have searched these forums and google … nothing. I can only assume I am using the wrong terms; surely folks are routinely doing this? Or maybe they are, but not wanting to share the secrets?
I am sure the info IS contained in the SDK documentation, but would appreciate it if someone could help suggest where in the docs to find code snippets to handle midi.
