Its not immediately obvious than a plugin (in any format) is the right
choice to control a device. I guess it depends a lot on the nature of the
device. I know that there are companies like UAD who have external h/w DSP
units that are represented to the user as if they were "native" plugins. If
it is this kind of thing, then certainly "wrapping" the device and
presenting it as if it is just a s/w plugin is a smart and nice thing for
the user. On the other hand, if its a device that doesn't bring audio into
and/or out of the computer, or if it only brings audio into/outof the
computer, then a plugin is not a sensible way to present it.

Hi all,I'm writing this for a friend of mine. =
This particular friend is a recording hardware developer that build sev=

(e.g. Bob Katz).

So this friend and I were discussing a new hardware analog device with =
digital control that he designed and I must say that his idea is pretty goo=
d.I asked him if it will be possible to control the device from a plugi=
n and got a negative answer, but he said he would be glad to offer informat=

I told him about Linux, Ardour and LV2 and he was very interested.I pro=

make an interface for his device in LV2 format.

I don't know how much (if any) money will be involved, so you will =

interested please contact me directly so I can give you more details.
