i've done a fair bit of development using the synthedit sdk and an old 32 bit borland c++ compiler. life has afforded me an opportunity to develop on a 64 bit windows 10 platform.
while i consider my programming style to be competent within its own context, i have no practice of using other peoples resources, possibly because my use of borland's fclt compiler postdates any public use and public resources for it.
i'm attempting to install the vst 3 sdk. i've managed to unpack the zip. the next instruction is:
https://developer.steinberg.help/displa ... +for+VST+3
i feel confident that this was written knowing that i would have absolutely no clue what it means. i am also confident that if i look up "package" in google, i'll be directed to UPS or amazon.Building the SDK examples requires installation of several packages:
sudo apt-get install cmake gcc "libstdc++6" libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-util-dev libxcb-cursor-dev libxcb-xkb-dev libxkbcommon-dev libxkbcommon-x11-dev libfontconfig1-dev libcairo2-dev libgtkmm-3.0-dev libsqlite3-dev libxcb-keysyms1-dev
i wasn't going to do this as i've been happily involved otherwise but yesterday i was hit by one of those moments of inspiration that dictated i have to do a particular thing, specifically making a speech synthesizer more better. for all of you, people who love audio synthesis.
you are of course entitled to your own opinion about my ineptitude for not having done enough of whatever someone thinks i'm supposed to do to comprehend these instructions, but the fact is, i do not.
if anyone would like to assist to the extent that i may actually be able to install the sdk to the point of functionality, well it would be like my birthday.
i hope you like cake and ice cream.
