Hello all,
I'm a new user set out to learn how to design audio plugins and started out building the volume control. At the moment I am at the step to build the plug-in (I haven't even added the little bit code to map the variables to the volume slider). When I try to build I get this error.

ackafxprojects\volume\volume.cpp(8): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'CVolume.h': No such file or directory

I'm not sure what is going on here however I was able to get the build to work properly if I changed this line below.

#include "CVolume.h"
#include "Volume.h"

which VS was able to locate the file properly and built the plugin.

Is this fix a bad fix? Will it mess me up further along in the book? Is this an error in how RackAFX writes the code?

Btw I'm running Windows 7 SP1 (64-bit), RackAFX 6.2.03, and VS2013.

Thanks for the help!

I also have a follow up question. I have been seeing multiple instances of functions(?) being written with double Cs infront of them. For example, the book outlines this Boolean function.

bool _stdcall CVolumedB::userInterfaceChange(int nControlIndex) ... etc

in my code I have

bool __stdcall CCVolumedB::userInterfaceChange(int nControlIndex) ..

its a slight change however I wonder if it is similar to the same issue I outlined above.

Hi Kski

Thanks for the heads-up on that! This issue has been corrected in the new version 6.2.04 that you can get from the Downloads page here:


Both issues were related to a new "Use Hungarian Notation" feature that went awry.

Thanks again!

- Will
