first off Jules, I want to let you know how much I appreciate your outstanding work. Judging from a deeper look at the sources and documentation, the Juce framework seems of an exceptional quality that we rarely come across. Please keep up your endeavour!
Now for a simple question: Can the plugin framework be used to wrap a small VST/AU host (for a single instrument only) inside? My intention is to have a VST/AU instance that sits on each track of a DAW and connects to a standalone application (OSC or CopperLan). The latter instructs it to load/unload a particular VST/AU instrument, feeds it with MIDI for playback, etc. Sort of remote controlled sound server. Would this be possible?
Actually I planned on having a dedicated AU implementation for Mac and another for VST only on Windows. Now that I am evaluating your framework, it seems a true cross-platform solution would be better.
Any hint is highly appreciated. TIA.
