Dumb plugin question

I’ve been writing standalone apps so far with no trouble, but I’m trying to write my first plugin… I definitely selected new plugin project but when I build I just see a static library in the Debug folder. Where’s the plugin??

On a Mac.

Nevermind… it’s the default build settings. I would have expected VST3 to be selected by default!

VST3, AU and Standalone builds are selected by default when creating a new plug-in project. Did you perhaps create a plug-in project and then select only Standalone in the “Plugin Formats” setting? This will override the defaults.
