Up until recently I have been developing my VST Plugins in Windows using Visual Studio. When debugging, I have attached the Visual Studio Debugger to Ableton by setting the debug “command” to Ableton Live 10 executable – This worked no problem, allowing me to debug my plugin while running on the host (set breakpoints, read values, …)
Now I have switched over to Mac and am trying to do the same thing, but haven’t been able to get it to work…
In XCode, I setup the XCode Scheme Settings (Product->Scheme->“Edit Scheme”->Run->info) to use Ableton Live 10 as shown in the attached screenshot.
When hit “run” in Xcode It builds successfully and then immediately says “Finished Running Live”, without launching Ableton.
When I do the same thing using reaper instead as the host, it works: I click “run”, it builds successfully, then reaper launches and I’m able to use breakpoints.
Has anyone else had issues connecting XCode to Ableton? Any tips on getting around this?
