One thing for the authors to consider is if things start moving in this
direction if they'd prefer to keep the GPL license or move to something
like the LGPL which permits a couple of the examples above. At the
moment doing a VST adapter or using ChucK in non-OSS freeware are not
permitted by the license. Honestly, this is probably also problematic
As for integration in general, yes, it is something that's important not
just from an application developer's perspective, but from a musicians.
I'm currently using a mix of Live, ChucK and VST plugins over a series
of virtual audio and midi cables, but that makes restoring my
environment for a given piece / performance rather complicated. I've
thought about writing a dummy VST plugin that just sets up the right
connections and calls the ChucK executable with a given ChucK file.
