Eternal Processing in VST3

In RackAFX v6.8.x, you can now obtain Host Information for tempo, BPM, and a slew of other details about the DAW operation. This information arrives during the process( ) function call. Some VST3 hosts call the process( ) function in perpetuity - e.g. Reaper. However, others such as Cubase do not. This means that the host information stops flowing when the transport is stopped. If you use Make VST to port your project, you can force the Host to call the process function forever (eternally) by modifying the function


in the Processor.cpp file. Remove the existing code and return kInfiniteTail instead. Once the transport is started, the process( ) method will be called forever. This also allows you to process zeros through your plugin if needed.
