does anyone know whether the C API for Pd is similar to Max with regard to externals? I've been chatting to the developer of these plugins, who has also created an [au~] external for Max/msp, that allows patching audio units into the graph.
It occurred to me that the APIs should be similar in that only a few small tweaks would enable us to create this object, which I personally have been wishing for ages. I wish my skills were that advanced that I could provide the answer myself. Would this be a feasible job? The developer has kindly offered the source code and whole heartily supports porting this to Pd (on os x), but does not have the time.
