Wusik X42 is DONE! Plus other news from me...

Post Sun Apr 07, 2019 1:54 pm

Here are the latest news @ Wusik :-)

- Wusik X42 is DONE, just needs to beta tests more and improve a few things. But I would say that in a week I should be able to release it. If you don't know what Wusik X42 is: more than just a bridger. You can bridge 32 plugins into 64 bits hosts and even host 64 bits plugins into 32 bits hosts (if you are running a 64 bits OS). You can cross-host VST2 <-> VST3. You can buffer a plugin, so it if crashes it won't take down the host. It allows over-sampling of plugins and also the hability to add MIDI processors such as Round Robin, Transposing, Key/Velocity Splits, Chords & Strums and more. Is a very complex application.
You can purchase Wusik X42 right now and download the BETA version right away (Windows only).

Another Wusik X42 BETA.

Apr 07 2019 - V1.0.0 BETA #032

- Fixed the number of parameters and programs in the bridged plugins.
- Improved some aspects of the plugins editors (GUI). By default it tries to set the window inside the host, but it shows always on top. You can change this behaviour in the options (Wusik X42 Manager screen). So bridged plugins will be in its own windows when not set to always-on-top. Due to some limitations on how windows works, I haven't found a way to have bridged plugins windows inside the original host windows.
- Improved the GUI colours so they are all in the same scheme.
- The plugin's manager now shows more information about each plugin.
- Several internal fixes.

Cheers, WilliamK

This solution seems about 4 times as expensive as Jbridge, an existing bridging solution.

Could you please explain where the difference comes from/ what we can expect as being better than existing bridging solutions?
big +1

Hi William,
just checked the latest beta 0032:
- Something strange is going on with the parameters: sometimes changes get reported back to the host, seconds after changes are made, sometimes it jumps between parameter values for some milliseconds. Also, the host gets very sluggish when changing parameters with the mouse inside the plugin.
- VST3 version is also missing the parameters.

Tested on Reaper 5.974 x64, plugin tested was ninja (http://vstmuseum.com/grid_vst_ijdevelopment/)

Ah, indeed, I will check those out asap. But the way I'm sending parameters changes could be a bit slow, will need to improve it. :dog:

As for the other people questioning my product. Please, give me a break, the other product has nothing to do with my vision. :-\ Since you have no time to read my site, here's the description of Wusik X42, from the product page at www.Wusik.com

Wusik X42
The Plugin Hosting Buffer and Bridger
A plugin hosting tool that allows bridging from formats (VST2/VST3/AU), Platforms (32/64 bits) and also adds an extra layer of crash-protection by "buffering" plugins into separated processes. This way if a plugin crashes you can decide if you want just to reload it and re-use the last saved details or just close your entire project and start over. You can also rename plugins and have them display any name you want or hide plugins that you don't want to use at the moment.

How will this work? You will open Wusik X42 and scan the plugins you have. Now you setup a target folder where Wusik X42 will place the "dummy" plugin files and select the target plugin format: VST2/VST3/AU (the later is only on OSX). In your DAW/Host you set to use this later folder instead of your regular plugins folder. Now every time you select a plugin you are actually selecting a "dummy" file that will handle your original plugin file. You can them use VST2 plugins as VST3 plugins, from either 32/64 bits versions. You can even use VST3 plugins in a VST2 host. On OSX you can also use AU Components in VST2/VST3 hosts and vice versa. And if you have a 64 bits OS you can even host 64 bits plugins into 32 bits hosts.

Some Extra Options (those are selected from the plugin interface menu, which can be hidden)

- Oversampling Selector.
- MIDI Processors (same as in Wusik P2000).
- Programs Listing, Selection, Loading and Saving.

Configurations

- Plugins Source Folder(s).
- Plugins Target Format: VST2/VST3/AU.
- Plugins Target Folder.
- On Plugin Crash: auto-reload: on/off.

I'm checking out why the FX version of the code won't produce audio (I can reproduce it here with Reaper, no audio indeed). BTW: You can watch me code live. :cool:
