Topic: VST-EXT idea

So... MIDI-EXT has been the main way of creating light effects for Launchpads for quite some time now. However, the fatal flaw in it (to me, anyway) is that it requires Max for Live. I use Live Lite, mostly because I can't currently afford Standard + Max for Live or Suite. So my idea was, "Hey, why can't there just be a VST version of MIDI-EXT?". It's a great idea, because all you really need to do is send midi data through the plugin, and then out to the Launchpad (Top Lights Plugin could also be implemented, but that's going super deep so I'm not gonna talk about it). However, I have NO IDEA how to code VSTs, so I thought throwing the idea out here would be a good idea. So, if there's any way you could help me out with this endeavor, that would be great.

Thanks,

Re: VST-EXT idea

Yeah, well. There is a way of having MIDI Animations work without the M4L tool. I have a half finished Tutorial hidden in the Team-Section of the forum. I should finish and release it. I had this worked out basically a week after the tool was released but somehow ended up not having enough time finishing the Tutorial... Maybe after the exams :P

Yes... I know. But Chain Lightshows are just annoying AF.

Nope. I'm not talking about Chain Lightshows. I'm talking about a way of having Drag'n'Drop Lightshows like with the plugin, but without it. I'll try to finish this after the exams, though i can't promise anything since i have quite a backlog of work...
