Are we talking about this one? http://ju-x.com/hostingau.html

As its free I can test it, great. If you know more free/demo AU hosts that would be nice.

for testing purposes

Yeah, I use that one, too. Together with Garageband and Ardour.

Thanks a lot for reporting this, I cannot start hostingAU on Catalina, but have been able to repro & fix the same issue in Ableton Live 10 trial, hope this fixes it for hostingAU, too.

No new upload yet, going to find & test some more AU hosts first.

cool and super thanks!

no idea if/how&why hostingAU won't run under catalina

afaik urs heckman (aka u-he) is quite a big fan of hostingAU - because of i
ts easy&fast testing capabilities

maybe worth contacting him/his team in regards if&how hostingAU can maybe be run under catalina?

OPL uses JUCE, but K1 plugin doesn't.
indeed, I was sure that it written in JUCE

I updated the AU package to fix the resizing issue in Ableton & hopefully hostingAU

https://nilsschneider.de/files/NilsK1v-MacOS-AU.zip

Please delete the existing component before copying the new one, do not overwrite the existing component

I had issues when just overwriting instead of deleting/adding

yes, now it is working correctly in hostingAU (in re resizing)

thank you! :-)

i had a strange instant crash while playing around with the "search" function
but unfortunately did not save the crashlog and could not repeat it...

keep testing...

AU, logic, mojave version:

resized window size will not be remembered (logic only)

example:

insert K1 in logic's instrument slot
open K1
it will open in (qute a huge) 1410x768px size
resize it to something smaller
close the K1 window
reopen the k1 window
it opens again in the huge 1410x768px size and not the last resized (smaller) size

seems to be logic only
in hostingAU the size will be rembered correctly

Just confirming what muki stated about sizing.
It remembers the size in Hosting AU, but forgets window size in Logic, GarageBand, and Apple's AU Lab app here in Mojave.

I remember Nils said he had GarageBand, so hopefully he can duplicate it there.

Really, a pretty small nitpick... otherwise, great job !
Thanks Nils !!

Thanx Nils,
Works here under BigSur 😀
Btw: Since it is AU now, I have donated $20 again 😃
Anyone else?
