Sorry to come nagging for my first post but I have a problem with VST2 support and unfortunately, after reading The removal of JUCE’s embedded VST2 SDK and JUCE 5.4.0 - all kinds of problems
I could not grab a solution.
As i my peer Nonlinear, I recently got in the JUCE boat by downloading JUCE 5.3.2 to build the AudioPluginHost, but then downloading 5.4.1 “broke” the project: I could not load any VST2 plugin. The problem is I still want to be able to load VST2 plugins (lots of very good stuff in the nature, and I promise if I develop a VST plugin it will be VST3).
Here are the steps I followed:
- Downloaded Steinberg VST SDK 3.6.11 because of the following: does not seem like my JUCE 5.3.2 got the VST SDK:
-> Everything works with VST2
- Merged folders with 5.3.2 (with Windows)
- Found the trick to build with VST2 by uncommenting the VST format support in AppConfig.h
- Fell on this:
But I never heard of such files: if I search for “aeffect.h” file in my 5.3.2/5.4.1 merged folders I find nothing about this.
Can somebody please enlight me about this sorcery? How could I load VST2 plugins on the 5.3.2 AudioPluginHost with only VST3 SDK?
What can I do now with 5.4.1? VST2 SDK does not seem to be available anywhere.
Thanks in advance and have a great evening,
