- 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::setPlayConfigDetailsfails 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.
