my apologies if this subject is becoming annoying, I found a few similar posts on the forum but none of them solved my problem.
Like the subject says, my freshly compiled Demo VST PlugIn is not showing on the effects list in either Adobe Audition or Audacity. I work under WinXP and compiled with VC6.
I am only interested in VST at the moment, no AU or RTAS for now. These are the steps I took so far:
Installed the vstsdk2.4 from Steinberg.
Downloaded Juce 1.5 from SF and compiled in both Debug and Release modes using #define JUCE_PLUGINHOST_VST 1 in the juce_Config header. No problems compiling either modes once I added the appropriate paths for Steinberg’s VST SDK.
The Visual Studio project+solution in juce\extras\audio plugins\demo\build\win32 are not backwards compatible with VC6 so I created an empty Win32 DLL project from scratch.
Wrote slightly modified versions of the DemoJuiceFilter and DemoEditorComponent classes (a simple Plugin to adjust gain). I included the regular juce.h instead of the amalgamated version. I also set #define JucePlugin_Build_VST 1 in the JucePluginCharacteristics.h
Compiled in both Release and Debug modes and - again - once I included the right paths for Juce, had no compilation problems.
I copied the resulting TestPlugin.dll to my standard VST Plugin directory (which is also in the VST_PATH Windows environment variable).
In Audition I went to Effects->Add/Remove Directory and added that dir. Then I ran the Effects->VST Plug-In Manager and found my TestPlugin on the list. I selected it to be enabled.
8 ) By clicking ok Audition refreshed it’s effects list, but my Plugin is nowhere to be found. I tried changing the Plugin’s name, it’s “unique PluginCode”, nothing. Same problem in Audacity even while using the VST-Bridge Plugin.
Any Ideas of what I should try next? Any help is greatly appreciated.
