I spent hours trying to figure out how to get BPM and Beats from the host. I looked at the JuceDemoPlugin but I really don't understand how to port that into my plugin.
I just need to get BPM and Beats in my plug-in processBlock, what can I do? I understand that I have to use AudioPlayHead::CurrentPositionInfo but how?
Thanks in advance.
The BPM is given in CurrentPositionInfo::bpm (?)
I used this in PluginProcessor.h
and in PluginProcessor.cpp (inside processBlock)
and I keep getting 0.
I'm using Logic as DAW.
get a look at the AudioPlayHead documentation.
you got to do something like that :
I'm trying to understand but I'm still a newbie with C++.
I tried as you said but I got this error on the first line
Field type 'juce::AudioPlayHead' is an abstract class.
Could you explain step by step what should I do? Thanks.
oh, yep. ok, so in your class that inherits from AudioProcessor :
- in the .h :
and in .c, in your processBlock method :
playHead = this->getPlayHead();
just after you can look at currentPositionInfo.bpm
