Hi, thank you for coming back to this topic.
I'm not interested how things should theoretically work, they should work ;-)
There are several threads on this forum who are discussing issues. The macro is not working, as in previews versions.
But this is really important (really!) , because it will break current plugin-projects and forces me to stay on juce 4.0
Even the smallest changes have a big impact.
To be honest, i just don't have the time to test any host, but i fear i have to do it, because i don't like buggy or undefined behavior.
At least there has to be a few configurations which should be tested along all different major hosts.
- Plugin which is using the same number of I/O channels (default stereo)
- Plugin which is using the same number of I/O channels, and mono to stereo (default stereo)
- Plugin which is using the same number of I/O channels, and mono/stereo to surround, mono to stereo (default stereo)
This configurations must be tested in Cubase, Logic, Reaper, Wavelab, Tracktion, Mainstage, Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Bitwig etc...... on
- Mono Channels
- Stereo Channels
- Surround Channels
Also, the new functionality, IMHO is a little confusing. I have the slight suspicion that it can't work, but thats speculation.
I tried to understand what's going http://www.juce.com/forum/topic/plugin-channel-configurations-juce-41-workaround-not-working-expected-cubase#comment-318967
