VST Search directory
« on: October 09, 2009, 21:43:00 »
If you load in a song that uses a plug-in that you miss, it'll ask you if you want to search for this plug-in at kvraudio.com.

I was thinking: Isn't it possible to add a setting to give a default VST Directory, and when it encounters a vst in a song that isn't in the list, that it looks for the dll in that folder or subfolder, or optionally (preferred actually) looking for that plug-in in the directory the song is stored in.

Say, you download a song and it has plug-ins in the package, it'll look in the directory to add em.

In case you set this to "S=A", please reset it. I never said that i was going to do this. I have a whole lot of other things to do first. I was just thinking that it might be a good idea!
