Both this plugin and wavecymbal are not properly recognized by the fl studio 20.5 plugin manager (win pc), it reports it with an error status. The webbrowser version is quite interesting, it'd be great if you could look into the issue with the plugin version :).

I confirmed they are not working on FL Studio 20.6 (64-bit). I'll work on it.

It started working when I restarted FL (both 32-bit and 64-bit). I forgot to mention that I use Windows 10.

Possible cause:
- Make sure to put '*.vst3' directory into 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3'. FL will not recognize VST 3 plugins in VST 2 folder.
- FL 20.6 has added a features to recognize VST 3 plugins. So update FL and see if it's not recognize the plugins.

If problem still persists after these steps, please report it back. I'll ask some info.

I updated fl to 20.6 but it doesn't resolve the issue for me :/.

Sorry for late reply.

I'd like to know:

- CPU model (Processor)
- System Type (32-bit or 64-bit).

On Windows 10, both are available at 'Settings -> System -> About'. Settings can be opened by clicking cog icon in start menu. I'm asking this because if you are using 32-bit system, my plugins will not work.

If your system is 64-bit, then try building plugin locally. Build instruction is available:
https://github.com/ryukau/VSTPlugins/blob/master/build_instruction.md.

If it's too cryptic, feel free to ask questions.

If your system is 32-bit, then you must change a line in build instruction.

Change:

'''
cmake -G"Visual Studio 16 2019" -A x64 -DSMTG_MYPLUGINS_SRC_PATH="../../VSTPlugins" -DSMTG_ADD_VST3_HOSTING_SAMPLES=FALSE -DSMTG_ADD_VST3_PLUGINS_SAMPLES=FALSE ..
'''

To:

'''
cmake -G"Visual Studio 16 2019" -A Win32 -DSMTG_MYPLUGINS_SRC_PATH="../../VSTPlugins" -DSMTG_ADD_VST3_HOSTING_SAMPLES=FALSE -DSMTG_ADD_VST3_PLUGINS_SAMPLES=FALSE ..
'''

Only difference is '-A x64' to '-A Win32'.

Thanks for your reply :) i tried updating the plugins but that didn't help unfortunately. EnvelopedSine is also reported with an error.

I'm using a 64-bit pc with an i7-6700 (non-K).

I've updated FDNCymbal and WaveCymbal for another bug fix. It's unlikely to solve your problem, but you could try it.

KVR doesn't let me reply to your last post, so I put my post here.

It seems like CPU is not the problem.

Just to make sure, did you check "Rescan plugins with errors" in FL Studio Plugin Manager? This screenshot shows where the option is: https://imgur.com/bJAoOZj.

Other thing I could think of is audio settings. Any chance you are using non-stereo system? My plugins only run with stereo in/out.

Various sample rate and buffer size (latency) didn't cause problem here so they are not likely the cause. (WaveCymbal blowed up in 22050Hz, but I believe no one is using this sample rate.).

I always leave the rescan option on, here's what it looks like in my plugin manager: https://imgur.com/a/prUOgSR

Thanks for the screenshot. I could also confirm that plugins are installed correctly.

I got a report that EnvelopedSine is not working on Windows 7 while it works fine on Windows 10. Which version (7, 8, 10) of Windows are you using?

i'm using W10... maybe people need a c++ redistributable or smth for it to work properly?

Parhaps C++ redistributable is the case. Plugins are built with Visual Studio 2019 Enterprise (16.4.0+29519.181).

I found C++ redistributable for VS 2019 here (vc_redist.x64.exe):

In FDNcymbal the Tonemix and Tanh function don't seem to do anything... also both fdncymbal and wavecymbal seem to have trouble loading presets. I can select them from the dropdown menu but they don't change the parameters. My own fst presets are working fine though. Aside from that i'm really enjoying both plugins, theyre excellent for sound design.

# FDNCymbal parameters
Changes of sound by 'ToneMix' and 'Tanh' are subtle. Those 2 parameters are there for fine tuning rather than drastically changes sound.

To check the difference of 'ToneMix', try this config and change 'ToneMix' and 'Seed':

For 'Tanh', try this config:

# vstpreset
FL 20.6.1.1513 has issue on loading .vstpreset files. You can fix it by replacing some dlls provided by FL developers. See this topic on Image-Line forum:
