I am creating a new AU instrument plugin. At the moment it’s very basic: no GUI, no presets, no parameters. It just plays a simple sine wave. It works fine in Reaper, and passes all auval tests.
But doesn’t show in Renoise. The renoise log doesn’t show any information about it being rejected; it just doesn’t show up in the dropdown. The “type” is “aumu” (music generator; the same type as most other instrument AUs).
I have attached the plugin to this message, but of course ideally it would be great to understand:
- what are the requirements Renoise imposes on AU plugins to load them as instrument plugins?
- how do I know why a specific plugin was rejected?
- what other tools are available to me to make this process more efficient / useful?
