I am having a hellof a time finding what should be easy to determine; how decent is Pd as a vst(i) host using the [vst~] object?
I use Pd for gestural control stuff but i am now looking to route my midi wind controller into Pd and house all of my synths and effects there, but i cant find a whole lot of information on how truly viable this is. idont want to invest the next 3-6months ofmy life into thisproject onlyto find out that the objects arent stable in xp.
does anyone have any insight into this? my goal is to use multiple vst~ objects to create a softsynth rack,with effects that i can control in "real" realtime (ie, 2-5ms),with my wind controller and various sensors. if all works well, i want to slowly replace each vst with my own patches until the system is completely mine. is this realistic with pure data? can someone point me to any resources that might help me as i begin building my synth rack?
thank you in advance. this is some ofthe PD work i'vedone so far
