The font goes in the images folder. You need to use the loadFont command in your front interface script to include it with the instrument. Make sure you own the license to use the font or that it is royalty free or similar :)
yeah if you could put some example code for the output meter using a vu meter filmstrip that would be great ive been pulling out my hair the last two days trying to get it to work lol. as far as the compressor i wish i knew the exact coding process to birng dsp code into hise there are tons of great things at musicdsp.org
I also had this idea in mind (that's precisely what the company URL field in the User Settings dialogue is for). I think the best way for this is adding an About page floating tile, which also shows the registered e-mail address of the user along with some other useful information.
