i wrote the below email to Mr Jaocobi but unfortunately he is going on holiday and cant reply, im hoping someone here can help me out:
i have started learning and love. With that said i am new to .NET development and also new to the Visual Studio environment. I got myself a C# book and Visual Studio 2012 express and have started from the bottom, developing small apps to learn the language,
With that being said I love music, i am a producer and have an idea for a do it all MIDI VST, I know alot about midi and have developed vst's using flowstone but now i want to develop a vst from scratch hopefully with your gem VST.NET
I know you are busy and dont expect an instant reply but i am hoping for some guidance on getting going as i have been so frustrated reading all the jargon on your website and really being confused on how to get started. I know you mentioned you are working
on a new documentation for VST.NET but what is most important to me is just to get going. Can you PLEASE, help me with the below points.
1) I have download VST.NET RTM.....this is the actual framework correct
FOLDERS in it (Code and Samples)
In code there is a CLR2 and CLR4, what is the difference here?
How do i get started creating a new project for my VST using this framework in Visual Studio 2012 express. Please if you can explain to me like you are explaing to a new born baby :) because compared to your experience in .NET programming and Visual Studio my knowledge is like a new born babies
2) I downloaded the VST.NET.Samples.VS2008.Express
I go into the Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper folder
and open this file: Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper.csproj
In the solution explorer It has all the projects open and Jacobi.Vst.Samples.CorePlugin is highlighted in bold
How do i build just the Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper VST, cause when i right click on it and say build i get this error:
Error 1 The command "copy "C:\Users\Documents\VST dev\VST.NET RTM\VST.NET.Samples.VS2008.Express\Samples\Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper\bin\Release\Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper.dll" "C:\Users\Documents\VST dev\VST.NET RTM\VST.NET.Samples.VS2008.Express\Samples.._SharedAssemblies\Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper.net.dll"

exited with code 1. Jacobi.Vst.Samples.MidiNoteMapper
Ok, i think i have spammed you with more than enough noob questions for now. Basically i just want to get started, i want to create a new project, and just develop something simple that will recieve midi from channel 1 and print it out to screen on the vst
Thanks mr Jacobi!
