This is Max for Live device to populate a list of VST/VST3/AU plugins and M4L devices which were used in any Ableton Live session.
Use this device when you want to parse several livesets trying to find these with (or without) the specific plugins. This is useful when you are switching plugins, changing plugin versions or preparing to share the sets. Livesets are not actually loaded into Ableton Live, PlugView is parsing them 'on the fly', so the process is quite quick.
Usage: load Ableton Live session (als-file) of your choice by dropping it into PlugView window or by clicking on a big file chooser button. The list of VST/VST3/AU plugins and M4L devices which were used in this Ableton Live session will be displayed in a grid, sorted and counted. Now you can copy this list to system clipboard for further processing. You don’t need to actually open the live set in Ableton Live to populate the plugins list. Just drop any als file from Ableton Live browser or Finder/Explorer into PlugView window.
I'm pretty sure this is the first M4L device which extensively use Node For Max.
PlugView was tested to work in Ableton Live 10/Max 8.0.3 (macOS Mojave/Windows 10). Note, please, Max 8.0.3 (or later) is required to run PlugView.
