Hi, I’m planning an audio project using Elk OS with Raspberry Pi 4 and the HiFiBerry ADC+DAC. The hardware is arriving soon, but I’d like to get a head start on the steps needed to build a headless VST3 plugin that will run on this setup. I’m building on an Intel laptop, Ubuntu 18 with JUCE v6.0.7.
I’ve read over the documentation from this link:
I want to start out by building the “elk_juce_example” plugin from the example repository on Github (I’d be switching the vst2 flag to vst3). Which steps apply to my build? It seems like I need to do the steps from “Plugins using JUCE version 6” and “Cross compiling JUCE plugin”, but a few things aren’t clear to me:
- How do I unset the $CC and $CXX env variables (as simple as “unset CC” in terminal?)
- Where do I get the env setup for the “source /path/to/environment-setup-aarch64-elk-linux” step?
- After these steps and saving the Linux Makefile from the Projucer, do I just run this in the makefile folder to build: k-linux-ar make -j
nprocCONFIG=Release CFLAGS="-DJUCE_HEADLESS_PLUGIN_CLIENT=1 -Wno-psabi" TARGET_ARCH="-mcpu=cortex-a72 -mtune=cortex-a72"
I’m assuming after the .vst3 is built, it’s as simple as moving it to the RPi4 and running it in Sushi, but I didn’t find alot of documentation specific to the HiFiBerry board.
Thanks in advance! I’m very excited about trying out Elk OS for my project.
