Two problems with au juce plugin in bias peak


#1

A user reported me two problems with my audio unit juce plugin in bias peak.

The first one is really strange. Any attempt to move the plug-in by
grabbing the plug-in’s GUI top border will cause the plug-in to leap
into the dock. I’ve confirmed this one with the Juce-Demo Plugin.

The second one is that the GUI is very slow responding when dragging some sliders. I also use periodic refreshing of vu-meters, maybe its a similar issue discussed here:

any help appreciated

Is Bias Peak OS X only or do your problems also occur on PC? Do the VU meters also update slowly or sluggishly?
Also check this thread, where I proposed a solution that worked well for me: http://www.rawmaterialsoftware.com/juceforum/viewtopic.php?t=2650&start=15

no, only on OS X with Audio Unit Plug-ins.
You can download a 14 days trial version of Peak on their website.

yes, explicit when you dragging the sliders, and the slider position seems to be updated only every 0,5 seconds.
I don’t have this problem with AUs on Logic 8.

You say, you changed the Timer class to use the Carbon API. Can you share the source-code with me? I will check it out (send my email address via pm)

Thanks for you help!
