FR: Support CLAP for plugins (host & client)

Support CLAP for plugins (host & client)

Haven’t tested it so far. Instead I’d really appreaciate official support for CLAP for JUCE.

I would Also appreciate official CLAP support for JUCE!

in the process of this: drop vst2 support. then there are no formats left anymore that don’t support sample accurate parameter changes and it will be easier for juce to work on that

I understand, but I’m I absolutely against dropping vst2 soon, because it’s still widely used and needs active support in case some future OS update (or whatever) breaks something (even when its not related to vst2).

(And I don’t wanna keep a second outdated JUCE repository in parallel; with all implications like two different apis for shared code between my product line)

This kind of abstraction is what defines a framework like JUCE.

I think sample accurate parameter changes can be implemented in vst3&CLAP and simply ignored in older formats. One does not prevent the other.

yeah, that makes sense. just wanted to say putting the work into supporting the new format would probably feel more rewarding if there is also a chance to implement its unique features :slight_smile:
