Hey everyone, since there seems to be a void for a simple plugin which can play files in the JUCE plugin host, I’ve built one:
I actually made it around a year ago, but didn’t share it because I figured nobody would be interested (until I saw threads popping up with requests/solutions).
It’s based on the audio player from the JUCE demo, but semi-rewritten to be usable as a plugin. You can just drag/drop a file in and hit play, and it will start pushing the audio data out.
It also features save/recall, so when saving a DAW project (such as via the plugin host example) it will reload the audio file from disk when loading the plugin from the host.
