@conference {136, title = {OSC Control of VST Plug-ins}, booktitle = {Open Sound Control Conference}, year = {2004}, month = {2004/07/30}, publisher = {CNMAT}, organization = {CNMAT}, address = {Berkeley, CA}, abstract = {The basic control structure of VST audio plug-ins can limit their usefulness. Control can be improved through the use of Open Sound Control by developing a flexible name space that employs multiple, intuitive parameter names (and aliases), higher-level controls and range mapping, simplifying control for the user. We will demonstrate these ideas with Max/MSP patches that repackage VST plug-ins in a more usable way and also introduce the idea that plug-in interfaces themselves can be improved by building in a well-formed OSC name space. Such a name space would enhance the longevity and flexibility of finished musical works. We will also show that when the plug-in is controlled directly with OSC atomicity and queries, control could be further improved.}, url = {http://cnmat.berkeley.edu/publication/osc_control_vst_plug_ins}, author = {Freed, Adrian and Zbyszynski, Michael} }
