Dear KVR Members,

We are glad to announce that Blue Cat's Plug'n Script 3.1 is finally here!

This new version is now available as a standalone application, in addition to the usual plug-ins formats. And it now lets you export your creations as independent VST, VST3 or Audio Unit plug-ins!

The update is free for registered customers, and if you do not own the plug-in yet, it is available for purchase for $79 or 79 EUR (instead of 99) until December 15th, check it out!

As usual, the update for V3 users can be downloaded from the same location as the original full version (link received by email upon purchase).

What's New:
- Now available as a standalone application.
- Export plug-in in VST3 and Audio Unit plug-in formats.
- Faster graphical user interface loading.
- New version of the Angelscript engine (2.32) with improved performance and new add-ons (datetime, filesystem).
- Last loaded preset is now remembered in session and displayed in the presets menu.
- Plug-in state can now be reverted to the last loaded preset.
- Improved scalable graphics for icons and buttons.
- Dropped support for legacy RTAS and DirectX plug-ins formats.

Enjoy!

Great tool! But how exactly is it with VST export & distributing since Steinberg had this VST license thingy going on?

That's a good question :-).

In order to distribute VST or VST3 plug-ins, you indeed need to have an agreement with Steinberg. You probably cannot get an agreement for VST2 anymore as they announced they would stop accepting newcomers after October, but they are pretty happy to get more people into VST3 development, so it should just a matter of signing the papers that can be found on their website.

For Audio Units, as far as I know, there is no need to sign anything.

Okay. It's no drama for me because Plug'n Script can conveniently spit out whatever I need :D But definitely going to get a VST3 license agreement then. Any plans on doing AAX export too or is this also some licensed format? Anyways great work, thanks a lot! :clap:

AAX may indeed come in the future, but it requires an agreement with AVID and extra steps to make the plug-in authorized for Pro Tools anyway.
