I don't see any reason why you couldn't have one MediaNode manage several V=
ST if you would like to manage them all in a single thread.  Also, it's p=
ossible to have multiple MediaNodes all serviced by the same thread. (not=
 too normal I don't think)



I don't think the MediaNode system in BeOS is good for this purpose.
The MediaNodes are good for inter-program works; I think Frans is looking
for an intra-program system to process sound busses.
We have a VST wrapper, but try to load and link ten addons out of a
MediaPlayer, and then try to load these VSTs out from SoundPlay.
With MediaNodes you have >10 threads with SoundPlay only one.

RealtimeFX is a good idea, but i think that beos should also support
the universal standards of the computer music world.
