Ok, so my first custom GUI is built. I did get distracted "customizing" the rack GUI, but as soon as I worked it out I was a nested container user. You do need to say not to add user resources with the same name as ones used internally. All good, exported VST, and trimmed the rc file, for a 2.6 Mb /Ox compile. Not brilliant, but good.

Shortcut to .vst3 created for an easy .dll, and even wrote a simple manual to stick to in implementation. Quite a large GUI with 40 knobs @ 64*64 plus containers. I don't mind though, but a scaling option might be useful. And other fonts do not work. Not a real problem, but it is a bug to not get Cooper Black bold 20pt.

This website by the way is not SSL secure, so consider lokking into that. Nice little forum wordpress.

Is there anyway of removing more code such as it is I'm not using the vector joy, and many things seem built in which are not needed, in vst2 land? Also the knob initialize and preset code could do with factoring to simple initializer variables in alternate constructor form. Not many bytes there though.
