Hi, this adaptor/wrapper is mainly meant for hosts that don't support vst3 plugins such as Reason or Maschine.

What's new in version 1.1:

- IContextMenu implemented
- IMidiLearn implemented
- hostside midi learn(if the vst3 supports IContextMenu)
- bugfix, some vst3's did not load properly because of a stupid bug
- compiled with latest vstsdk3.71
- midi out support

Thats for making this! It has proved very useful for me. Some DAW companies should just hire you to write their VST3 implementation.

Is there any chance of making a Mac version?

Hey, thanks for this awesome straightforward piece of software.

I have an issue in Maschine where the wrapper doesn't rescan any newly added vst3s.
I found a workaround where i delete the vst3shell.dll -> restart maschine -> add vst3shell.dll again -> restart maschine again to force the wrapper to rescan.

Is there any other way to force rescan?

Thanks for your time

This is a really great and useful bit of software, thank you for making this. I was using it to convert the midi sequencer Stochas from vst3 to vst2, this was successful but I could not get any midi out of the converted file, do you know if midi out works in plugins that use it when opened with the wrapper? Any help appreciated!
