[Openal-devel] OpenAL on VST

I'm talking about making OpenAL work in VST plugins, not VST hosts. VST supports multiple channels and I aim to add OpenAL abstraction and features on top of VST so users of VST hosts can run my synth as a module (it currently only supports standalone mode with openal).

VST is simply an interface, it sounds like you are wanting to use OpenAL
send data to a VST module? OpenAL does not need to be ported, you
simply need to send the raw audio data to the VST module and use AL with
the result. Get the 2.4 VST SDK and look at some of the examples.
If you are starting from scratch, may I suggest looking into using
DSSI. It is an open-source version of VST, however if you need to run
an existing VST module you can either use dssi-vst or just stick with
the VST SDK.
