Re: AirWindows plugins don't reset properly, he says it's a problem on Steinbergs end

Hi,
this is not a Cubase user forum. If the developer of AirWindows has a problem with its plug-ins with Cubase he/she should get in touch with Steinberg.

Cheers,
Arne

Re: Resizing plugin not working properly.

Remember that everything in the edit controller domain must happen on the main thread also calls to the IComponentHandler instance of the host. So don't call beginEdit, endEdit or performEdit on a secondary thread.

Cheers,

Re: VST3 and MIDI CC pitfall

Musicians struggle all the time to handle MIDI, especially young ones. Even I struggle sometimes even though I speak MIDI for 30 years. MIDI-CC is a black box system, that no one can understand without looking in the manual of the product, or all the products you work with. That was OK for the time ...

Also MIDI CC can be used for many things (not only parameter changes)
What are these many things? Are you sure that these things are not workarounds to do something an audio plug-in is not supposed to do?

Re: VST3 and MIDI CC pitfall

Hi, from my personal point of view, a plug-in should not handle MIDI-CC at all. It's the responsibility for the host to map input events to parameter changes. The host knows what external hardware is connected and which routings are active. A plug-in does not have the knowledge about this. As a plus...

Re: Create a new (auxiliary) window?

Why don't you create a plugin capable to process 6 channels at once ? Why does this need to be on different tracks ? Most use-cases can be implemented via multiple event input busses and/or the note expression feature in VST3.

Re: VSTGUI 4.3 on a VST 2.4 plugin, possible?

Hi,
sure it's possible, but involves work from your side.
Read
https://github.com/steinbergmedia/vstgu ... _changes.h
especially the section: code_changes_3_6_to_4_0.

I hope this helps,

Re: Do you use the Unit-tests Dialog in the PluginTestHost?

For everyone who uses the dialog, can you tell me why you use it and not the vst validator? Is there something missing in the validator?

Re: VST Sample projects: rand( ) and XCode

Hi Will,
this was not intended. There's just one header include missing in testbase.h:

Code: Select all

#include <cstdlib>
The next SDK will include this change.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Arne
