VST minihost for Linux


#1

Hello

Just to let you know that I extended the VSTSDK 2.4 “minihost” from the examples section, with support for Linux. It’s very handy to check your GUI and loading/parameter handling when developing VST’s on Linux.

BTW, What do you guys think, will this get me in trouble with Steinberg?

Is there much of a difference between this and the demo Plugin host that ships with JUCE?

[EDIT] I guess there is, this little host is a command line app?

Correct, this is a minimal command line app. I find it a lot quicker to load the vst .so with this than restarting a gui-program and/or reloading a vst plugin through a gui in a larger host.
