<h2>What Is PdVst</h2>
PdVst is a software system that allows Pd patches to run as VST plugins.

<h2>How it Works</h2>

PdVst consists of two main parts, a VST plugin and a custom version of Pd.
When a PdVst plugin is opened by the host application, a setup file is read to
determine information about the plugin, such as the Pd patch file to use, the 
number of parameters, etc., and the custom version of Pd is started and opens
the Pd patch file whose name was found in the setup file. 


<ul><li>Download <a href=""></a></li>

<li>Copy the pdvst folder to the directory that contains the 
   application (e.g. Cubase.exe) that you want to use PdVst with
   (e.g. c:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase VST\)</li>

<li> Copy your .pdv, .pd, and any dependant Pd external .dll library files to the 
   pdvst directory.</li>

<li> Copy your plugin .dll file (e.g. Pd_Gain.dll) to the vst plugins directory
   for the application (e.g. c:\Program Files\Steinberg\Cubase VST\VstPlugins\)</li></ul>

To create your own plugin, copy and rename Pd_Gain.dll or Pd_Synth.dll and create a .pdv setup file
with the same name.
