Output re-routing question (emulating two instances of one plugin)

I don't know if this is possible, but I'm using processVSTAudioBuffer with great success, however - for a particular effect, the only way I'm getting the results I am looking for is to use two instances of the plugin in series within the DAW.


Is there a way to emulate using both instances within one instance? I've tried using an intermediate variable to hold data (in ProcessVSTAudioBuffer), but I get only silence.


I hope my question is a little clearer than mud. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jimmy,

can you be a bit more specific? Inserting two instances of the same plugin should have the same effect as doing whatever you do in your processVSTAudioBuffer method twice. What do you mean by "intermediate variable"? What kind of effect are you programming?


Best Regards

Hi Tom,


(I'm totally editing here)


I got it figured out. Something about posting questions on this forum works some kind of magic.


I was able to repeat the function however - the way the data was represented had to be modified quite a bit.


I appreciate your response.


Best regards,
