I’m following along with the JUCE tutorials and plugin examples, and making sure I can compile them, load them into my DAW, and get them to work. I had success with the ArpeggiatorTutorial (though I did have to go into the settings in the PROJUCER and check “Plugin MIDI Input” and “Plugin MIDI Output” before it did anything), but am having trouble getting my DAW to even see the MultiOutSynthTutorial plugin file.
I’m on Ubuntu 18/04.1 LTS, using JUCE 5.4.1, build date 3 Dec 2018. I’m building VST (Legacy) .so files, and building using the Linux Makefile. My DAW is Reaper v5.965 rev 3a8222.
When I enter the “make” command, the output I get is:
Compiling include_juce_audio_plugin_client_VST2.cpp Compiling Main.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_basics.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_devices.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_formats.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_plugin_client_utils.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_processors.cpp Compiling include_juce_audio_utils.cpp Compiling include_juce_core.cpp Compiling include_juce_data_structures.cpp Compiling include_juce_events.cpp Compiling include_juce_graphics.cpp Compiling include_juce_gui_basics.cpp Compiling include_juce_gui_extra.cpp Linking MultiOutSynthTutorial - Shared Code Linking MultiOutSynthTutorial - VST Compiling include_juce_audio_plugin_client_Standalone.cpp Linking MultiOutSynthTutorial - Standalone Plugin
Which seems like everything is fine. I then have a MultiOutSynthTutorial.so file in the “build” folder. I add that folder (/home/john/Desktop/JUCE Development/ArpeggiatorTutorial/Builds/LinuxMakefile/build/) to Reaper’s VST plugin paths, click “rescan”, and go to add the plugin to a track. Unfortunately, when I do that, it’s just not there. (It also scans nearly instantly, which usually doesn’t happen if there’s a new plugin detected.)
Any idea what could be wrong?
Thanks for any help! Please let me know if there’s more info I should provide.
