I am a VST noob, did some rudiments with the Steinberg SDKs a few years back and now I’ve made a convolver for reverbs and most recently a visualizer for an “Ego Riser” I’m making for my band.
The trouble is, I cannot figure out how to package it so I can share it successfully. Of course it is the same old story of “works on my computer”.
Is there a dependency on say a redistributable or something else? Seems consistent that it starts working after JUCE is installed on the host…?
I also struggle a bit to find a good way to debug this. The plugin simply won’t show up in end user Reaper (I have tried all the Reaper workarounds for this issue - it does not fix it).
So I guess this is question part two: how do you debug issues like this? Especially since I am unable to reproduce myself.
I built a Release, x64 and genereally followed Package your app or plugin for distribution.
It is a visualizer so that the other band members can contribute to the design of the lights.
It has a vertical jet smoke machine (with leds) and four Par Cans that can be controlled through a custom MIDI map (the others won’t bother to learn any DMX software so I just make a MIDI->DMX dongle).
Thanks for any and all answers!
