Many thanks to @rorywalsh for the help and support provided during the development and many thanks to @iainmccurdy for providing great example that are real gold when you discover Cabbage and Csound for the first time ! Some parts of the code came from these examples : some of the effects, and some of the MIDI guide system, (which is a really great one)(I marked these parts in the code with link to your website)


I tested a little toneZ in Cubase 10 pro and it works properly, also read and write automations.
All the best!

Thanks for this great plugin! Some of the presets immediately made me think of using it for some classical organ piece. Finally, I finished this with the iconic (some people prefer “epidemic”) work BWV 565, the Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Here is the result. Apart from Valhalla Supermassive on the master and some EQing it is only realised with ToneZ.

@Retornz: Feel free to use it as demo. BTW, the REAPER-ToneZ problem seems to be resolved with version 7 of REAPER.
