I'm new in this community and also in JUCE and C++, a completely newbie here! I've been doing Kontakt instruments for a few years (programming and scripting) and now I want to take another step, so I'm starting with JUCE.
I want to create an audio plugin that the only thing that does is stopping the sound of the track where it's inserted and play an audio file based on the position of the DAW. Maybe with a custom skinned knob to control the volume of the audio file. It will be a joke for the April Fools day, it seems like a good project to start since it's not too difficult and, since it's a one-day joke, it's not transcendent.
Don't know where to start since there are a lot of information, what classes do I need to check out? Any help will be appreciated.
