Create VST, AU & AAX Plugins

Easily create license-free VST2, VST3, AU and AAX plugins for Windows and MacOS!

Write one monolithic C++ object, then use RackAFX to create native Visual Studio and/or XCode projects. RackAFX creates the projects in their entirety – no more cutting and pasting into old templates! AU projects are MacOS-only by nature; VST and AAX projects contain both the Windows and MacOS project files. You only need to rebuild the product in the configurations you choose (32 or 64 bit, etc…). The resulting plugins include sample accurate MIDI, sample accurate parameter automation (API allowing), full host DAW integration and runtime information like BPM, time signature, absolute sample index and more.

VST Compatibility: RackAFX plugins will run simultaneously in RackAFX and any Windows 32-bit VST2 or VST3 host without alteration or extra compiling. With one click, you can recompile as a 64-bit DLL for running natively in 64-bit VST2 or VST3 hosts. This includes full Custom GUI support. This is really timesaving if you need a quick VST plugin for testing or demo-ing algorithms.
