I've been playing around with REW a bit and really like it!
I have a MiniDSP to use with REW and really appreciate that it can work with biquad coefficients, so is more flexible than just using f0, Q and gain.
Anyway, when using REW with a PC playing via a renderer with VST plugins (JRiver Media Center for example), although there are plenty of VST PEQ plugins to choose from it seems I must enter the parameters for each filter manually. This is tedious and error-prone.

I was just wondering how useful it would be to have a VST plugin that could read REW files automatically so do away with the manual programming step. It would preferably work with biquad coefficients (a0,a1,a2,b0,b1,b2) for flexibility (eg. closely follow the MiniDSP format but with more than 6 filters).

I could volunteer to write such a plugin if there was sufficient interest.
Or is there already something that does this? (in which case I wont bother).

How hard would it be to get REW running VST plugins?
Then the same plugin could be used inside REW to check the accuracy of the correction filters (via another sweep test)
I am just trying to work out the easiest way of writing such a plugin.
There are so many options it is all a bit confusing.
Any suggestions on what to use?
I understand DSP, Matlab, C and Python.
C++ is really scary.
It cant be hard ... cascading biquads reading parameters from a file....
I have looked at SynthMaker and SynthEdit but reading textfile parameters seems to be far more complicated than using a real programming language.
