I finally managed to try K1 ( either I was using a bad download, or my sample rate was too high, so it was crashing ), what an amazing synth to have !! Thanks Nils !!
I am musically schizophrenic

Thank you VERY VERY much! :tu:

AU version is progressing nicely, there is no GUI yet but the plugin can be loaded and already played via MIDI :D

Making good progress, UI can be operated, AU host knows the preset names, they can be selected either in the host or in the K1. Parameter changes work, too, pretty cool so far.

However, I have some problems with resizing, the host doesn't react to the K1 resizing its window and the host window itself is not resizeable.

Would there be someone that could test a very early version of the plugin in Logic?

Thanks a lot! :)

I'd expect that you have resizing issues, playing / editing should be fine. Please report any observations. Thanks again! :tu:

Works beautifully in Logic! As you said, the GUI resizes nicely, but the window stays the same size :D Other than that, couldn't find any issues! (Latest Logic & OS X Catalina).

That sounds fantastic, thanks a lot! Unfortunately I don't find many programming resources regarding the resizing issue, but I'm confident to be able to fix it before public release of course.

How is resizing with AUs in general, do you have many plugins that support it? and for the ones supporting it, is this a UI thing that is part of the plugin itself, or is the host window that embeds the UI resizeable?

Thanks!

If this one can do resizable GUI (as author said) https://github.com/reales/OPL you can look in code.

OPL uses JUCE, but K1 plugin doesn't.

Hi again, I've updated the AU to support resizing properly. Furthermore, the plugin should now be able to send midi.

Feedback welcome.
