VSTPluginTestHost for Apple Silicon

Post by Arne Scheffler »

Hi,
please find attached a preview version of the VSTPluginTestHost compiled for the new Apple macintosh computers with Apple M1 chips.
Use this for native tests on these machines.

Cheers,
Arne

Thanks a lot Arne!

The host works fine on my Silicon Mac. My plugin also works fine

Question: When I launch VSTPluginTestHost on a Silicon Mac are the plugins also forced to run in Silicon?

Just a minor issue (affects VSTPluginTestHost from VST SDK 3.7 aswell):
If you rename VSTPluginTestHost on the Mac it doesn't run. " 'skin.srf' is no valid skin file for this application"
Note: I had installed it twice and renamed it to have different versions available for testing (Intel vs Silicon).
