I’m currently looking into updating our product line to include 64-bit support for the Linux VST plugins. Renoise does seem to recognize the native 64-bit plugins, but not without a few issues, most pressingly:
All instruments are being categorized as Track DSPS.
The “Ext Editor” button is absent, meaning I can’t access the plugin interfaces.
Before I started bothering Team Renoise with bug reports, does anyway know of any other native 64-bit Linux VST plugins? And if so, do they work fine in Renoise?
I have a feeling there aren’t any (yet), but I thought I’d just throw the question to the crowd in case someone knows something I don’t!
Yes, we have a similarly liberal licensing policy to Renoise/XT. Basically, your purchase gives you a serial key which works for any operating system or plugin format. A single licence can, for example, be used on your home computer, laptop, and studio machine. The license details are elaborated a bit further on our support page, if you’re interested.
DSSI plugin support is on the development to-do list, but we’ve no idea when (or indeed if) we’ll get around to it. There just hasn’t been much call for DSSI to be honest, particularly in comparison to requests for Linux 64-bit VST (or even LV2). Of course, if enough people ask, we’ll take a serious look at implementing DSSI support all the sooner.
Solution found: The problem seems due to the version of the VSTSDK against which the plugins are built. Using VSTSDK 2.3 causes the problems witnessed above; building against VSTSDK 2.4 works perfectly. Thanks again t-sys: finding a working 64-bit plugin saved me a lot of headache here.
