Default AU location


#1

Hi Jules

Why does the AU default location is this string :

FileSearchPath AudioUnitPluginFormat::getDefaultLocationsToSearch()
{
    return FileSearchPath ("/(Default AudioUnit locations)");
}

And not the /Library/… / ~/Library/… couple?

Because AUs aren’t really stored in a “folder”, they’re just accessed by their ID.

Thanks.

So basically the FileSearchPathListComponent for the AU in the Plugin Host app should be disabled, right? there’s no reason for choosing directories there.

Yes, quite possibly.
