Hi there!

My name's Giacomo, and I'm looking forward to do some VST programming.

I would like to ask you a question: do you know if it is possibile to develop a program to read plugins values? I mean.. you start a DAW session, load some plugins and then.. from an external program read the values of those plugins.

I thank you in advance :)

If you build your own host, yes it is possible.

Any existing host must have some sort of API exposed to do what you ask. I never heard of such an API. So my answer would be, No.


What are trying to accomplish?
