Best way to embed VST Plugins in App


I have a JUCE Audio Application that makes use of some external VST Plugins.

I would like to
a) embed all the plugins in the App so it doesn’t rely on external files
b) compile for iOS and possibly for Android in future

What would be the preferred/easiest way of doing this (i have all source code):

  1. create static libs from the vst plugins and then link them. I’m just wondering if this would this work for compiling to iOS too?
  2. rewriting the plugins to become AudioProcessor objects.
  3. is there a better solution that i don’t know of?

Many thanks.

If you have the plugin’s source code, then hacking them to turn them into AudioProcessors would be by far the most robust thing to do.

great, thanks!
