AudioPluginFormatManager::createPluginInstance


#1

Hi JUCE team,

I can see here that function AudioPluginFormatManager::createPluginInstance runs over all existing formats until one of them return a non null result as follows:

for (int i = 0; i < formats.size(); ++i)
        if (AudioPluginInstance* result = formats.getUnchecked(i)->createInstanceFromDescription (description, rate, blockSize))
            return result;

That means that any format, at plug-in instanciation, can get a request to open a plug-in that is not its...

What surprises me a little bit is that the format is already known in the description, so what not use it and call
createInstanceFromDescription only for the relevant format?

Thanks

All of the plug-in formats check the plug-in type inside their versions of createInstanceFromDescription, so the function should never return a plug-in which does not match the requested format.

right!
