If you decide to go this route, you will not need Windows or Visual Studio, but you will also loose all the help RackAFX gives you in declaring your variables and setting up your controls. This Forum Group is for users who don't/won't use WindowsOS. If you will use Windows, then there is no need for any of this stuff - just use Make AU to port your RAFX project directly into an AU XCode project and compile away.
Without RackAFX's help, you will need to declare variables and instantiate the variable control objects and add them to the linked list. You can find details in the Appendix of the FX book on how the linked list works and what the important object attributes are. Refer to that Appendix when setting up your control objects.
You will also need to manually create any other .h or .cpp files that are needed, for example in the Reverb chapter there are several added C++ objects/files that you will need to copy and manually add to your XCode project. You need to know how to do that on your own.
Lastly, RackAFX not only writes code for you, it is also your test client. You will need to provide your own AU client for testing and debugging. You need to know how to setup XCode to use your AU client app for testing. Obviously, you also need to have XCode debugging skills to properly debug your plugins when they don't work.
So, if you are up for a bit of manual C++ coding and have the appropriate XCode skills, read on and enjoy doing your FX Book projects on a Mac!
