if you have some other app that supports VST effects, you could use
this patch to share settings between both apps with the same
effects. It's not limited to Windows, but I am only able to test it
It could not be extended to other effect formats, since FXP is a
Steinberg format, even limited to VST 2.x effects. I was told, that
Cubase uses (or at least used) it to store effect parameters. Until
now I don't have any VST 3 effects, nor do I know their format for
Practical use (which is why I came across adding FXP format to
Since Audacity isn't able to apply effects while playing back audio,
I finally managed my setup to use JackD and VSTHost to interactively
set effects while playback. I'll post my steps to do this in some
days, but you could read the main idea here:
When I found some working settings for an effect this way, I would
like to apply this effect with exact these settings to my audio
tracks in Audacity. To do that, it's easiest way to save the
settings in VSTHost (where I set them up) and to load them into
Audacity when I want to change my source audio.
Of course, one could simply "copy" the settings by matching the
visual settings, but it's easier to save and load these, not only
because you can then keep them for future use.
The fact that VST effects seem all be able to save and load program
parameters simplified things here.
If there are standard formats for LADSPA and LV2 effects as well,
someone should really care about these as well.
If you could point me to some (free) effects and some other
application that stores their standard format along with some
documentation on the format itself, I could try to implement these
Until then - VST only, sorry.
(but the XML part is VST specific as well, so no disadvantage in
only adding FXP to VST effects)
Is there some need to implement FXP (bank files) as well? I have no
use for them atm, but it won't be too hard, I think...

I can't comment on the patch as I'm neither a developer nor a Windows
user, but I was wondering if this could be extended to work with
LADSPA and LV2 effects.
