VST design (last) question
I’m looking for urgently the right framework to design VSTi & fx.
I’d need to create VST for win & osx
Juce C++ is amazing & powerful. Now I’m sure about that :)
I can deal with that but it is very time killing :-/
Synthedit or synthmaker are still in a corner of my head. . .!
I need to implement quickly some prototypes of my ideas about circular or spiraloid sequencer, drone machines etc …
m4L is ok for me but, for different purpose, I want to open the box to users outside of Live too.
Pluggo is discontinued I know that.

Hi DEvo, and thans for your feedback :)
Juce C++ is very attractive because it is very multi-platform.
The one you quoted cannot be used on windows but indeed, I could create 2 differents source one on each platform for each final platform.
Not sure it could be the better way.

You know what, I even thought about creating max5 exe using soundflower & yoke & rewire as “external” module to use with your DAW… it would suck compared to real VST…

Because it is discontinued, I’d need a safer way :)
But it kills the osx users branch and I don’t like it for many reasons.

I’d dream to have an answer by mate inside Cycling74 about that :p
Still thinking about my best solution (the one that fits with my needs I mean)
prototyping with max is easy/powerful and I’m relatively comfortable with it :)
I guess the prototyping step is required before pure coding.
that annoying step named “pure Juce c++ porting from Max5 prototype” is the part that, before to have begun anything, kill my motivation.
Not because it is impossible to me, but because I really consider it as a waste of time.
Maybe I’m making a mistake here.
I’d like to discuss in that thread about that :)

In the long term it’s worth learning c++
imo, i like iplug : https://github.com/audio-plugins/wdl-ce/
you could combine it with a dsp library, then you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. I think the BSD licensed icst-dsp library is really nice. I hope to release my own c++ library one day

hi oli larkin,
You’re right about C++
But quickly prototyping with a graphical programming framework is easier.
btw, I guess I’ll prototype stuff and after that, I’ll port to C++
I know Max, I don’t know SynthMaker ; but SynthMaker can export VST for win (which could help me to alpha test pre-release with my circle of friends)
I guess the final word for me here could be: Pluggo w/ Max5 would just be nice :)
