I am developing code, which is a foundation for more than 10 (and raising) products - AAX plugins. each having its external content and configuration.
Normally i would have to make separate project for each plugin, building one by one etc.
Then I've come to idea to make physical copies (with a unique name) of my original AAX plugin and then, when plugin is loading in host, supply unique id and name/desc of the plugin to the host.
I've changed some code in juce_AAX_wrapper - i am supplying JucePlugin_Desc, JucePlugin_Name and JucePlugin_AAXProductId dynamically.
Using Pro Tools 11, I have mixed success with this approach:
- my plugins are recognized properly at program startup, they are available on the plugin list, they all have unique product ID, name and description.
- nevertheless, plugins still got mixed, so wrong plugin is actually loaded (always the same), despite showing correct name and ID in plugin window
This is a clear sign, that there is still "something" inside plugin, which i didn't change so plugins are not being properly recognized. Some kind of additional identification, don't know, can't find anything else related to this in JUCE.
Any ideas or hints, what do you think - what i am missing, is possible to use this kind of approach at all ??
