I am using MAX/MSP with pristine space.
MSP has signal processing objects, and one of them is vst~ , which is a VST host.
I tried to use the vst~ with pristine space.
The object is initialized with "vst~ 4 4", since I need 4 audio in and 4 audio out, and this should initialize the vst host accordingly.
PS offers only 2 in's ( all others are grey) but the PS text read "4 in, 4 out" (which was my setting for PS)
I know, that not a lot of people use this setup, but maybe someone tried this.
I am not sure. MAX/MSP is offering the vst~ - object to load VST-plug ins. When I initialize the object, it ask me for the vst-plug in folder and the plug-in I want to load, in this case, PS. So I think you can call it a wrapper.
I asked on the MAX-mailing list, and people told me that with other vsts, they have been able to use more than 2 in's.
On the other hand, what would be the difference, if I run 2 instances with 2 ins versus 1 instance with 4 ins?
PPS: Can I send an initial command to the plug in to set the value of ins/outs ?
There will be no difference regarding CPU load between 2 plug-ins with 2 inputs/outputs and 1 with 4 inputs/outputs.
Number of inputs/outputs can only be switched on the user interface.
It can be also true that MAX/MSP does not update internal information about plug-in. So, after you switch the number of inputs/outputs, it simply won't update. Maybe you should also check for an option to 'rescan' plug-ins inside MAX/MSP (I'm not familiar with this host myself).
