SDK API

Post by pongasoft » Sat Aug 03, 2019 5:47 pm

Hello

In short: If I wanted to write a VST3 host only what are the folders that are necessary and what are the ones that I can ignore?

When I look at the VST3 sdk it comes with a lot of folders and subfolders and it is hard to know what is the "pure" VST3 API, and by that I mean, the classes/apis that are necessary for a Host to understand and a Plugin to implement. For example, under public.sdk/source/vst there is auwrapper which is clearly not part of the API.

Or is it fair to assume that the folder called 'plugininterfaces' is what I am looking for?

Thanks
Yan

The API is completely under the "pluginterfaces" folder. You don't need anything else to build plug-ins or hosts.

Cheers,
Arne
