Can I build an AU instrument that is also an AU effect?


#1

Is it possible to compile a plugin for iOS that shows up both as an AU/IAA Instrument AND an AU/IAA Effect?

I ask because my plugin is a synth but also takes audio-in (so I’ve compiled it as an Effect) but many users are asking for it to be an AU instrument. Also, many users only look in the instrument slot and when they don’t find my app they think it’s a bug!

Cheers,
Mark

Couldn’t you just duplicate the jucer file, and change the settings in the jucer file such that it is no longer an instrument, but is an effect now? maybe change the 4-character code to reflect this or whatever else is required to differentiate the two. obviously, add some #if blocks to remove the instrument part of your plugin from the FX-only variant… just guessing, tho…
