a silly thought in context of vst usage

musikbear
not sure if this is relevant. It depends on how much work has been done to accomendate more vst-formats already??
But..
What if lmms did not save the vst-controllers, eg -that pesty binary-string in the vst-block, that all too often bloats to absurd size, and is unuseable for lmms, at re-open, but instead saved the lmms-contollers, eg:


Those controllers are native to lmms, and should always be possible to save -right?
Then the various ways vst's are builded, would be transparent in respect to how lmms saved data in the mmp, and the bin-string could be omitted

Is this silly..?

@musikbear,

Different VSTs store their information in different places, but IIRC, the "pest binary-string vst-block of obsurd size" is part of the protocol.

If you believe there to be a scenario where we are storing redundant information, or storing data inefficient you are encouraged to study the available methods and explain what we're doing wrong.

If this is just you looking at an LMMS dialog and going "Hmm..." then perhaps you should ask in your own 4 VST bug reports that already mention this.  This one might be a good place for the discussion:
