Over 150 Airwindows audio effects as Max externals

A few months ago, I asked Chris Johnson (author of the wonderful Airwindows VST plugins) for permission to port his open source algorithms to native Max externals. With his go ahead, I went off to work on this package of Max externals.

Even though it’s easy enough to use the vst~ object, I think it’s easier to package and share externals than VST/AUs (in Max for Live devices, for example). I also knew that the Surge Synthesizer team had used a perl script to mass extract the inner workings of many Airwindows plugins — I thought it would be a fun quick hack to try to do the same with Python to create Max externals with the Min API.

Like the original Airwindows plugins, this package is MIT licensed.
