Hi Will,

3 issues:

1) I am encountering a couple compiler errors for two of the bonus projects (StereoDelayerPresets and DevReverb) which I believe are related to projects not being generated with the latest version of ASPiK.  Here is the error message I receive:


.../ALL_SDK/VST_SDK/VST3_SDK/base/source/fdebug.h:69:4: DEVELOPMENT, RELEASE, _DEBUG, or NDEBUG must be defined!

generated by the code statements in the fdebug.h include file associated with VST SDK:

#if !defined (DEVELOPMENT) && !defined (RELEASE)

#ifdef _DEBUG


#elif defined (NDEBUG)

#define RELEASE 1


#error DEVELOPMENT, RELEASE, _DEBUG, or NDEBUG  must be defined!



I haven't been able to determine where the appropriate compiler preprocessor macro name values should be set within the ASPiK framework to clear the errors (other than brute force)  Any guidance you can provide appreciated!


2) Also, I received a 404 page not found error when navigating to for the Harmonic Exciter and Ring Modulator plug-ins (though it is a good learning exercise to leave as activity for the reader :-).  


3) Finally, for the WickerAmpCombo project, I did have to modify a couple lines of code in valves.h to successfully compile and build.  May be isolated to my environment/compiler (using Xcode 12)...but I had to insert 4 type casts (2 static_cast<float> and 2 (float)) when assigning and/or initializing floats from doubles.  


Thanks in advance for your support.

Tim C.

OK thanks - I will look into these issues.

Steinberg just released a new VST3 SDK and that means I have to go re-vamp ASPiK for it. Current supported version is 3.7.1.

Where did you come across the link for the missing bonus projects? Is it from the new book?

I have not compiled Wicker on XCode 12 yet, the last version was 8.3.3 so guessing that may very well be the issue.

I am using VST3 SDK version 3.7.1 with the advanced projects (StereoDelayPresets and DevReverb) generating the compiler error.  Yes, the reference to the missing bonus projects is from the new book - section 19.15 on page 563.  Gotcha on the Wicker on Xcode.  Thanks for the quick response.
