@paper_lung You may also want to consider hiring one of the experts here to get you started. As an executable, HISE is pretty solid. But getting there has a lot of rough edges, quirks, misdocumentation, and bugs that while not affecting execution - can make the building process frustrating until you're used to them. @d-healey did an excellent job getting me started, and I know @Lindon is really good, too. (And others - those are the two I know.) Do not expect any interaction with @chris - consider him a mystical deity who slings code. David has a great Patreon, and just published a course. I just released (what I think is the only) code-based coding tutorial - it's free on…wherever the powers that be put it. There's also some great UI folks on here like @Straticah. Other than that, the best advice I can give is to start by reading the how-to stuff in the documentation. It's brief, well-written and informative. It will save you a world of trouble, and help you to ask the right kind of questions on the forum.
