Loading sample/files

Postby pongasoft » Sat Sep 15, 2018 7:03 pm


Let's say I would like to build a VST3 plugin that has a bunch of pads. Each pad is a different sample. When the user press a pad it plays the sample/sound associated with that pad for as long as the pad is being held.

1) how would I let the user load/assign their own sample (wav, mp3, etc...) with each pad? Is there any classes in the SDK that facilitate this loading?
2) the samples would have to be saved with the VST. Shall they be saved with the regular state (Processor::getState) or differently?
3) I would like the ability for the user to drag and drop their own file on a pad. Is there any classes in the SDK that facilitate this?

Thank you
