What host do you use for developing/debugging your VST?


#1

I'd like to set up a quick workflow for developing/debugging my VST plugin.

I saw this blog post which recommends several hosts and discusses how to invoke them from visual studio. http://blog.wavosaur.com/debugging-vst-2-4-part-1-visual-studio/

What do you recommend? How can I set it up with JUCE?

thanks!

Here's the relevant settings screen in VSE2013:

Thanks! That works nicely.

Can the Introjucer set that setting automatically? I didn't see any field to do so.
