Default Pass file to Plugin

Hi again,

I was wondering if I could give access to a text file to the vst plugin, which I could parse to change vst conf, giving it informations, a signature, etc

For example I could print different text depending the file content.

If it's possible, does the location of the text file is depending of the DAW or could it be anywhere on computer, allowing me to just give him a path like "C:\\Users\\CockOS\\Documents\" ?

You can read and write to a file located anywhere you like assuming you have the correct file permissions, but avoid doing so in the audio processing thread as this could result in blocking the thread and causing glitches or dropouts.

Yes - dependent on what you're actually doing and any side effects.
