I’m curious as to why building a Mac VST, VST3, AAX or AU places a symbolic link to the resulting binary in the build/Debug & Release folders?
I see in the Xcode Debug & Release settings places to set the output binary location (~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/…), which makes sense, but why do these symbolic links get generated? And where? I don’t see a Copy Phase in the Build Phases. Is there a way to stop this?
The main reason I ask, besides it seeming unnecessary, I have my development folders in a Dropbox, which is crazy useful for so many reasons, but Dropbox doesn’t like symbolic links that lead out of the Dropbox.
