1.17.02.54 ZynAddSubFX VST - inaccessable interface
« on: November 22, 2009, 17:40:02 »
Full Version:
OpenMPT v1.17.02.54

Has the bug occured in previous versions? If yes, please specify version(s): (This option is optional, and doesn't need research. But in case you know...)
Unknown

Description of the bug:

In all the Windows builds of Zyn I've tested, after you press "Edit" Modplug shows the FLTK window for a split second and then closes it. The plugin otherwise works and makes sound normally.

A recent Windows build can be found here:
http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=268277

The thread suggests slaving VSTHost but I haven't succeeded in doing that either.

Background info:
ZynAddSubFX is originally a Linux app and uses its own FLTK interface instead of running inside the VST window - the VST box just shows a stub. According to this thread, that hack is the source of the problem.

I'm desperate to use Zyn with ModPlug, it's ultra-powerful and the only synth I need, really... (honestly, I think it would work great as a built-in synth but that is a separate discussion)

How often does it happen?:
10/10

How to reproduce (step by step description):
Install ZynAddSubFX plugin. Load it in OpenMPT. Open "Edit" view.

The problem is still there in the latest versions, so that's no help. I have toyed around with the Alcatraz 4k synth myself a bit which also creates its own window, so I don't really know what the problem with Zyn is.

Closing this as it seems like either something in ZynAddSubFX or OpenMPT has changed so that it works now.
