File type for populate message ? (especially, file type for AU)


    Dec 23 2012 | 11:48 am
    Hello,
    I would like to populate the plugin in my system, either AU or VST or whatever. I succeed in listing all plugins but AU ones, using the following message for umenau : "types BNDL aPcs, prefix /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/, depth 5, populate". when I change the path to "/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST", I got my VST ; idem for HAL... but for AU, umenu stays empty.
    Do you know how can I add AU plugins to a umenu list ?
    And do you know where I can find all the files types for the populate message ? Can't find the list of the compatible file type as precised in Max documentation (help : umenu, attribute : type).
    Thanks a lot !
    Bye

      Audio Units are not bundles, they are components. Well technically they are bundles, but they use component as their extension. I'm assuming this is why you can't see AU's.

      Yes ; I think I must find the right parameter of the "type" fonction to call a compoenent. But I can't find a list of the "type" parameters.... strange !

      Try dropping an AU onto [dropfile] and see what type string you receive from the right outlet. This should be what you need for the "populate" message.
