Possible to download data Within Hise Script
Hi all , I'd like to write a plugin where the user can download new midi patterns or samples.
Another option is to create a configuration manager outside of HISE that feeds data into the VST plugin.
And thank you for creating this tool, I was on the verge of giving up before finding it

I'm not sure about MIDI patterns but it's definitely possible to have it download samples, PercX does this. However I don't know how to implement it, I think it currently requires some C++ skillz. Hopefully we'll see some of the innovations made in PercX filter down to the scripting API so we can do stuff like this more easily.
@d-healey thanks for the reply.
So could I edit the VSTs samples via a seperate application ? That's the other route I'm considering
You can use the Expansions system to provide additional sample content (sample maps + samples) to your plugin. This is how PercX works but it does it all from within the VST. You'd need to build a separate installer to place the content in the right location on your user's system and you'd need to design your plugin to make use of the expansions.
