Standalone support for stereo plugins with a mono mic

  • Many effect plugins support mono and stereo, but no not have mono-to-stereo mode
  • Many devices have stereo output but only mono input (various headphones with an integrated mic, usb-c displays with speakers and mic etc)
  • The standalone plugin target is quite useful for quicker feedback loop when developing plugins
  • For such plugins and setups, AudioProcessor::setPlayConfigDetails fails an assertion that the plugin doesn’t support the user’s setup

It would be very nice if for these plugins (which don’t support 1->2) the standalone would convert the input to stereo to turn the channel setup into one that the plugin would support.


Absolutely agree, and I had to temporarily switch a plugin to have {1,2} just for the standalone version so many times…
