I’m now in the “musical” phase of my JUCE synth use, in that I’m trying to get things working in my DAWs so I can use the synths I’ve made for songs.
I tried Reaper and everything shows up and works perfectly there with no hassle. However, Reaper is not my preferred DAW (Cubase is at this point).
I tried Sonar and while the synth shows up and is usable, none of the knobs/parameters work properly. I am guessing it is requiring all plugin parameters to be between 0 and 1 as I understand some older DAWs do perhaps? My parameters range from -60 to 200, etc. I’m not sure but it’s not that important since I don’t intend to use Sonar going forward and it’s basically a dead application.
Cubase Elements 9.5 is the one I want to work, and there the synth is not showing up at all. When I tried rescanning the VSTs the first time it said “one new VST found” but I’m not sure whether it was my synth or not, since I can’t find my synth anywhere. I’ve confirmed it’s scanning the right directory. It’s a VST3 (.vst3 file) built in Visual Studio 64 bit. It’s not in the blacklist. It’s just not there at all.
The same problem is happening in Ableton Live 9. It is just not showing up. But I can find on their website that:
Make sure you’ve installed VST2 or AU2
- VST3 and AU3 are not supported in Live.
Is there any reason this might be happening in Cubase? Thanks.
