[vst~] Reality Check


    Apr 21 2012 | 7:52 pm
    Hi all-
    Two questions about the [vst~] object on OSX:
    1) If I load an AudioUnit, the parameter range is the range of the plugin parameter, unlike a loaded VST which Max scales to 0.->1., correct?
    2) (see attached file) If I send the message "get 1" to get the value of the first parameter, I seem to be getting the value twice out the 4th-from-left outlet. Is this correct behavior, or am I doing something wrong? If correct, why?
    Thanks, Charles

      i don´t know what juce or max6 are doing - but AU have (or can have) 64bit-resolution parameters, this could explain the double output somehow.

      Thanks for your speculation, Roman.
      So some AUs could have 32-bit parameters? If so, then perhaps I'll be able to locate an AudioUnit that doesn't produce this issue.
      Best wishes, Charles

      Hi Charles,
      I can't reproduce any of this - params scale from 0.-1. and only output once when I get them.
      Max 6.0.4 Mac 10.6.8
      Which plug are you testing this with?
      Cheers

      well it should not really create that double printing anyway, it is unexspected behaviour in any case.
      cant reproduce it here.

      I don't receive the double output from the get message, but I do when i send numbered parameters. I used different AUs to test with CamelCrusher, soundhacks +bubbler, amplitude3 etc... When using either Kontakt 4 or 5 the output spits out the previous value of the parameter then the new value.

      ok I can see this in both VST and AU now.
      Thanks for the patch. It seems like you get 2 messages, one for mouse down, and one for mouse up, when you click in the UI of a plug too.
      We'll have a look at it.
      Cheers
