[A] DAW Plugin - community open-source project

Post by Simon »

Original topic: viewtopic.php?t=150

This feature is about making a DAW plugin which will be an alternative to the Sync File Generator when syncing Midronome to a DAW via Audio Sync (see the Midronome manual for more information about Audio Sync).

Unlike the other features, this feature will be run as a community open-source project. This means the plugin code will be open-source, and that we count on the community's help!


UPDATE 3 June 2023: first version of the plugin is out!!

==> Full Setup/Demo video here <==

Important info:
  1. Download the plugin
  2. AU file is for Logic only, other DAWs need to use the VST3
  3. Copy the .vst3 (or .component) file to /Users/<username>/Library/Plug-Ins/<type>/
    (replace <username> with your username and <type> with VST3 or with Components - for example: /Users/simon/Library/Plug-Ins/VST3/ )
  4. Run the xattr -cr <file> command to accept that the files are not signed, for example:

    Code: Select all

    xattr -cr /Users/simon/Library/Plug-Ins/VST3/MidroAudioSync.vst3
  5. Start your DAW, check out the list of plugins, you should see it in "Midronome" -> "MidroAudioSync"
  6. You need to load the plugin as ARA:
    • Studio One: create a track, bounce a region, and put the plugin as "Event FX" on that region (see the setup video)
    • Cubase: insert the plugin as an "extension" as shown in the section "Inserting Melodyne" of this page:
    • Logic: looking at this video, it seems that you can simply insert the plugin on a track as normal
    • Pro Tools: no AAX version for now - coming later :)
    • Other DAWs: google how to insert the ARA version of Melodyne and load the MidroAudioSync plugin the same way
Looking forwarding to hearing what you think!!
