How to create dual knob control, like as it is made in ambience plug-in from smartelectronix.
Whether superimposing of one control on another in VST GUI is allowed?
Any ideas.

well, can't say about vstgui specifically, but make sure that the smaller one is "on top" in the Z order, then make its hit-area (for mouse clicking) circular-ish
in SynthEdit for example, the hit-area is derived from the image's alpha channel (zero alpha means no-hit, non-zero - hit)
It doesn't matter how it sounds.. long as it has BASS and it's LOUD! >>> #kvr
