It seems JucePlugin_Desc is not used anywhere ? What was it’s meaning originally ?
Could it be used in RTAS wrapper, instead of a 4 char striped version of JucePlugin_Name, to display a custom (an meaningful) short name in protools mixer ?
static String createRTASName()
return String (JucePlugin_Name) + "\n"
+ String (JucePlugin_Desc);
Any problem with that ?
Because I have 2 plugins :
and they both show ‘CLAS’ in PT mixer without that mod.
Using JucePlugin_Desc I can name them CTPEV & CT560.
Why was there 4 char only, is there a special limit to not overload ?
I see some other manufacturers use 5 and even 6 in the case of altiverb.
Thanks for any advice,
