I have read the FAQ in ref of real time VST effects. The problem is one of the programs I am using has poor documentation … Here is the list of programs I am using:
Audacity - understand the manual
VSTHost - understand the manual
ASIO2KS - ASIO driver I am using
Jack for Windows <— problem, I am having , is setting this up so Audacity and VSTHost can talk to each other. The read me file is some confusion to me…I am a mandolin picker not a programmer and last time I did command line was DOS 6.22 on a 8088 and 386 computers.
Audacity does not support ASIO unless you build it yourself with ASIO support (http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/ASIO_Audio_Interface).
I’m not sure if Audacity currently supports Jack on Windows. I’m also not sure how Jack integrates with the Windows sound system. I know that one of the Audacity developers has been working on Jack support on Windows, but currently it may not work.
