Good idea! There are a couple dozen screws that have to be removed. I added the suggestion under "Things you'll need".

I use large refrigerator magnets a lot when I'm taking something apart. Makes it easy to organize screws in groups... unless they're aluminum  ;)

No problem! Rebooting fixes everything  ;D

Did it appear correctly in the plug-in list the first time you installed it? In other words, did the problem occur after the second time you ran Install.bat?
If you click on the plug-in name (CSWaver) in the Plugin Manager, is the path shown at the bottom (in the Filename box) the correct path to the plug-in?
If the path is correct, then the entry exists in the Windows Registry and Cakewalk recognizes it. If it's not showing up in the menu when you try to add a MidiFX, maybe there's an issue with the Plugin Menu Layout you're using.

Let me know...

Hi Francois...
It's been "almost finished" for quite a while but getting it to work consistently is problematic. The main issue is the fact that it only gets small buffers (about 2 beats) when Cakewalk is playing the song.
Generating the waveforms based on an arbitrary point in time wasn't too difficult to solve, but maintaining the state of the modifier CCs, and therefore the characteristics of the waveform, when I'm only receiving small, arbitrary chunks of Midi data just doesn't seem possible.
It does work correctly when used in Offline Mode (Process/Apply Effect/MIDI Effects) because Cakewalk supplies all the Midi data for the track at once, but another problem appears if there are multiple layered clips in the track.  ::)
I've also found that the amount of Midi data being sent can overwhelm a piece of outboard Midi equipment if the playback tempo is raised too high, so I need to add some reasonably intelligent code to regulate how much data is being generated based on the current tempo.

I may finish up a few details and release it with a big asterisk saying there are some situations where it may not work as expected, or I may re-write it as a VST-Midi plugin. Just need to get back to it  :P

Argh! I hate those errors that only happen occasionally :(
It's probably a memory corruption issue caused by the MFX. I'll poke around and see if I can find the cause. If I can't, I'll get some more info from you to see if I can narrow down exactly where it's occurring.

Nice piece! I like the light orchestration around the piano.
Glad the plugins are helping you out. I'm finishing up the EQ (had to take a break from it for a couple days). I'll implement your suggestions... shouldn't be too difficult.

Hey Max...
You can use the mouse wheel while hovering over the sliders (most of them, anyway) to make single digit adjustments. I'm planning to re-compile the plugins in the near future. I've made some changes/improvements in the base code over time that the earlier plugins don't have. I'll add some kind of fine control to them when I do that.

Check your messages... I need you to check this thing out. It's not quite ready for publication yet, so if you have any suggestions for it, let me know.
