Hello, I'm interested in using this to distribute (commercially) plugins - I just have 2 quick questions if you don't mind. 1) do the compiled plugins contain any blue cat markings / advertising that cannot be removed during compilation? I would rather users don't know which software package I use for programming. 2) Is there a licensing tool / interface that can be used to lock and unlock distributed vst's?

Thank you!

Thank you for your interest in Plug'n Script. Regaring your questions:
1) There should not be any particular advertising for Blue Cat Audio if you do not keep the logo in your skin (there is an option to remove it).
2) No particular licensing tool is provided. You can use your own licensing solution for your plug-in.

Just to add my 2 cents:
1) As you can do your own skin from scratch, you can come up with the GUI that is totally unique and doesn't mention Blue Cat Audio in any way. So no any special watermarks and whatever, everything can be personally yours. Though an experienced user can tell it's done with Blue Cat Audio's framework because of files structure, some tiny pieces that remind of Blue Cat Audio style here and there. For example your exported plugin (on Windows) is a yourplugin.dll + yourplugin-data folder, where your plugin files are located.

Thank you so much for the replies! One other question - should it be possible to host other VST's in my program? I'm wanting to create something similar to Patchwork. Do you know of any scripts I could get a hold of to use as an example? Thanks!

Hosting VSTs is another story: it is not built into Plug'n Script so you would have to write your own host. It's quite a bit of work!
