wouldn't it be nice, if it were possible, considering that everything
now works with global buses, to plug-ins/modules
which have access to those buses. would it be possible to do this in a
way which would not unduly
affect performance (so long as you haven't got anything plugged in of
in effect to make the current synthesis engine itself a module within
that kind of architecture.
this way other engines could have access to the same buses and could
also receive messages from the interpreter?
this would allow people to write graphical engines, gui engines, vst
wrapper engines, word processors :), which would all be capable of
streaming to or from the global buses. in fact the buses would not even
necessarily have to be constrained to holding audio
data, but could hold anything at all. osc addressing could look
something like this: /all/start for start all engines, /scaud/start, for
start only the audio engine, etc...
james will probably just shoot off a one liner telling me why this is
all impossible because of some technical detail
of which i am entirely ignorant.
just some thoughts,
