Ok. Try this out. It’s a 64 channel plugin built with the new version of Cabbage. You’ll have to work with this manually for the time being until I add export options to the new standalone host. This plugin should work out of the bag. Just extract and drop it onto an audio track. You should see 8 channels of diminishing gain.
In order to use your own instruments, simply paste your code into the CabbagePlugin.csd file that’s contained within this .vst bundle. This is the file the plugin opens when instantiated. It’s a bit messy I know, but at least it gives you something for the weekend
nchnls sets the number of channels that will be processed by the plugin. Most hosts I know of will ask the user for the amount of channels they wish to use, and limit processing to that amount. Any host that tries to process all 64 channels will get silence on any channels that are above the nchnls count. I still have to do some profiling on this, and run tests on as many hosts as I can, but I think this might be the way to go.
p.s. by 64 channels might be overkill…maybe 32 would suffice?
