VST 3 - AAX Wrapper

Helper Class wrapping a VST 3 Plug-in to a AAX Plug-in


The VST 3 SDK comes with a helper class which wraps one VST 3 Audio Processor and Edit Controller to a AAX Plug-in.

How does it work?

  • Check the AGainAAX example
  • AAX SDK 2.3 or higher is expected in folder external.avid.aax (located at the same level than the folder public.sdk)
  • here the step based on the AgainAAX example:
    • in the cpp file againaax.cpp you can define the plugin properties : IO audio, product ID, ...
    • on Windows copy built linker output again_aax.aaxplugin to "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Avid\Audio\Plug-Ins\again_aax.aaxplugin\Contents\x64" (the debug build does this automatically, but needs appropriate access rights (Administrator rights of your visual))
    • on OSX copy built bundle build/Debug/again.aaxplugin to "/Library/Application Support/Avid/Audio/Plug-Ins"
  • a developer version of Pro Tools is needed to load the plugin, the release version of Pro Tools requires plugins to be Pace-signed (PACE Anti-Piracy Inc.: https://www.ilok.com)
