::: What is a VST Plug-in? In the widest possible sense a VST-Plug-in is an audio process. A VST Plug-in is not an application. It needs a host application that handles the audio streams and makes use of the process the VST plug-in supplies. Generally speaking, it can take a stream of audio data, apply a process to the audio and send the result back the host application. A VST Plug-in performs its process normally using the processor of the computer, it does not necessarily need dedicated digital signal processors. The audio stream is broken down into a series of blocks. The host supplies the blocks in sequence. The host and its current environment control the block-size. The VST Plug-in maintains all parameters & statuses that refer to the running process: The host does not maintain any information about what the plug-in did with the last block of data it processed. From the host application’s point of view, a VST Plug-In is a black box with an arbitrary number of inputs, outputs, and associated parameters. The Host needs no knowledge of the plug-in process to be able to use it. The plug-in process can use whatever parameters it wishes, internally to the process, but it can choose to allow the changes to user parameters to be automated by the host, if the host application wishes to do so. The source code of a VST plug-in is platform independent, but the delivery system depends on the platform architecture. Processing Options Audio processing in the plug is accomplished by one of 2 methods, namely process(), and processReplacing(). The first one must be provided, while the second one is optional (but it is On the Windows platform, a VST plug-in is a multi-threaded DLL (Dynamic Link Library). On Apple Macintosh, it's a raw Code resource. Note that the plug's name as seen by the user is the resource name (not the file name). A folder labeled 'VstPlugIns' is searched for plugs, this should preferably be installed in the System Folder. Applications should additionally search the application folder.
