I’m thinking about a way to exchange sounds between users.
I work the way that I use mostly linked racks but also embedded racks. A rack can either contain just one sound without any rackstates (which are embedded racks) or several sounds with rackstates (which are linked racks). A “sound” is in most cases not only the tone-giving instrument itself but also the effects. I do heavy EQing on my sounds. So this is a mandatory part and this is the reason why exporting a program via the dialog inside the plugin is not sufficient.
I’d now love to have the option to export a rackstate. When importing the rackstate into a rack Cantabile will check for the VST IDs and if somethings missing it will bring up a dialog which asks if Cantabile should load this plugin. Of course the state will be automatically added to the rack-states.
What do you think about it? Does this makes sense to you?
