SEPARATE VST PATHS FOR 32Bit and 64bit hosts!


(groovyone) #1

PLease before V3 is released a way to SEPARATE PLUGIN FOLDERS for 64BIT and 32BIT versions of renoise.

Right now switching between them requires a lot of time, and this is something that I do frequently for various reasons such as pairing with a Rewire Host and different plugins.

Really appreciate this feature if you can squeeze it in.

Thanks!

Didn’t quite understand what you are trying to do,
are you running both 32-bit and 64-bit version of Renoise, and need to have different setups for these?
Can’t you just specify different plugin-folders in Preferences?
For the 32-bit version, select a folder with yout 32-bit plugs, and vica versa for 64-bit.

And oh! V3 is already released: ► Renoise 3 goes gold

V3 is actually already a fact now.
The search-filters and listings for the plugins could perhaps be extended with an option to only display native plugins (context menu option).

This can also be done with a tool using these functions:

– Returns a list of tables containing more information about the devices.
– Each table has the following fields:
– {
– path, – The device’s path used by insert_device_at()
– name, – The device’s name
– short_name, – The device’s name as displayed in shortened lists
– favorite_name, – The device’s name as displayed in favorites
– is_favorite, – true if the device is a favorite
– is_bridged – true if the device is a bridged plugin
– }
renoise.song().tracks[].available_device_infos[]
-> [read-only, array of strings]

– Returns a list of tables containing more information about the plugins.
– Each table has the following fields:
– {
– path, – The plugin’s path used by load_plugin()
– name, – The plugin’s name
– short_name, – The plugin’s name as displayed in shortened lists
– favorite_name, – The plugin’s name as displayed in favorites
– is_favorite, – true if the plugin is a favorite
– is_bridged – true if the plugin is a bridged plugin
– }
renoise.song().instruments[].plugin_properties.available_plugin_infos[]
-> [read-only, array of strings]

Seems like a nice addition for:
