New update : https://forums.steinberg.net/t/vst-3-7-4-sdk-released/754853

 

This makes me very scared Confused

  • This is the last version supporting 32bits plug-ins on Windows. The next update will support only 64bits plug-ins.

and also this one:

  • Add support of new VST3 Location on Windows: new option SMTG_PLUGIN_TARGET_USER_PROGRAM_FILES_COMMON

I just saw this too. I was under the impression that 32-bit plugins had been obsoleted several SDKs ago and the 32-bit notification seemed to involve the VST3 Test Host. 

This looks like a fairly major update - anyone willing to take on the CMake conversion for this new stuff?

I am fulltime in a new job now (as of Dec31, I am no longer a U Miami employee) and no longer have the long breaks I had as a professor -- 12 weeks for summer, 6 weeks for Christmas - I usually spent most or all of that time working on RackAFX/ASPiK or book manuscripts and this is no longer an option.

Will,

I found two lines they have changed:

1.smtg_add_vst3_resource To smtg_target_add_plugin_resource

2. smtg_add_folder_icon To smtg_target_add_folder_icon

and looking for other changes...

Ok... I found another strange issue!

cmake doesn't add the folder "PluginObjects" to the project so I had to have add these files manually.

oups I can't edit my post...

I meant we have to make some changes as like:

1.smtg_add_vst3_resource To smtg_target_add_plugin_resource

2. smtg_add_folder_icon To smtg_target_add_folder_icon

Ok, I found the issue!

that makes sense!

set(UNI_VST3_SDK_FOLDER VST_SDK/vst3sdk)

 

Now everything works so far so good.

If I have the vst 3.7.3 version, can I continue to program plugins in aspik without any problem?

Many thanks Jean ♪(・ω・)ノ

I think you found all the CMake changes necessary for the next update.

Strange the folder was renamed and also that that wasn't highlighted in the changelog. Didn't test the new ?useful "snapshot" functionality though.

It seems the file hierarchy changes have no impact in practice ie. can still ignore the bundle & put the .vst3 file where you want.

Tested a blank plug from ASPiKreator and ported an existing project just applying the three changes you've highlighted. No issues & yet to find any problems with the builds after some stress tests. 

Are you really still working 32bit? You'd have to disable the Validator running during the builds for future vst updates. Except why not use JBridge to load 64 bit plugs into that oldschool DAW?

Hi Jim,

sure... I guess all our credits have to go to Will so I just feel that how we are lucky to having him.

♦ I have also checked the new SDK on mac M1 so we have to add  only one line: smtg_set_bundle to the au cmake that's it... 

♦ I had 2 old projects which were 32bit but I worked on them so now everything quite at 64bit 🙂

♦ Now I have 2 bugs 

     1. The GUI size on StudioOne and Ableton is loading as 10% (Mac&Win)

     2. Presets Save and Load is not working as expected.

 

Cheers,

Jean
