Mac Bugs

I’ve discovered that the Mac version of my reverb plug-in can cause some nasty initial sounds when loaded in Reaper (and possibly other hosts as well)…..I’ve tracked the bug down, and will be releasing an update soon. If anyone has any reports of bugs, please do let me know, as I was unaware of this one! ¬†As the PC/Mac code is identical, then these bugs are present in the PC versions too, but they just never seem to occur…..

  1. Hi,

    I’ve put the pluggins in the folder Audio/ Pluggins/ VST (for MAC, Logic) but it’s not coming up in Logic?

    I’ve tried Audio/ Pluggins/ Components and still no joy?

    Please help

    Regards

    Vahid

  2. Hi Bruce, very interesting subject – I’ve always wanted to play my UHJ encoded Nimbus CD’s and now can thanks to you and Audacity!

    I’ve just noted that your VST’s will load and work ok for both the App. and the GUI in Audacity version > “audacity-win-unicode-1.3.12.exe” when located in the Plug-ins folder > BUT, “audacity-win-unicode-1.3.13.exe” won’t even launch now – tried it under XP and Vista!
    Their plugins info Wiki states, “From Audacity 1.3.8 onwards, VST effects are displayed with full GUI interface (where provided by the plug-in), and without need of the VST Enabler. This has been made possible by use of an open source VST header. ”

    Just to let you know I’m reporting it to their bug-fix section.

    Thank you again Mike Ware

  3. Hi Bruce – an update on Audacity from Audacity – note the Borland compiler comment!

    Thanks for testing, Mike.

    In case Bruce doesn’t notice it from Bug 462, you may want to draw his
    attention to the Borland compiler he builds the plug-ins with, which was
    the crux of the problem:

  4. Thanks for the update. I am aware of the Borland Dll issue, and have changed the control word to take this into account….maybe I’ve missed something or done it incorrectly (without changing it VSTGUI won’t work at all in Borland). Of course, I could just compile them with MS Visual C++…….
