Shell plugins


#1

Does JUCE support building shell VSTs (like the Waves bundle)? I would expect that compiling the source code from two different VST projects together might work, but with conflicts from "AppConfig.h". Before I look into it, I was wondering if anyone here has given this a shot?

I tried a forum search, but couldn't find much -- unless I'm describing this wrong!

Thanks!

No.. Since it's something that only VST supports, it didn't seem to belong in the wrapper. And I don't think anyone has requested it before!

It could probably be added by adding some macros to do what's necessary in the implementation of VSTPluginFormat, but we don't have time to write and test it right now. If you wanted to explore it and let us know what needs adding, we'd be happy to see if it's something we can modify.
