I am wondering how I can test an effect with SynthMaker, even something as basic as a volume control, within SynthMaker, without exporting it as a VST. For example, I would like to play a recording with my DAW or even Windows Media Player, and be able to affect it with SynthMaker so that I can test things. I am only interested in making effects, not synths.
Is this possible?
To try this with the most basic implementation I inserted a DS In, a VST component and the DS Out component -- connected in that order. When I play something back with Windows Media Player, the Volume control does not affect the sound. I didn't necessarily think that this would work, and after much searching I am not sure what would.
I am just beginning with it, so please take it easy on me
