Christian Budde has announced the release of version 1.2 of his VST-Plugin Unit Test application and also released updates for the Dual Linkwitz-Riley Filters.

VST-Plugin Unit Test is described as an 'Extreme Programming’ unit test for generic VST-Plugins (VST 2.3 and 2.4). It is based on DUnit and allows automated tests for a whole collection of plug-ins.

It was written to ensure the quality of Christian’s open source project, but might be useful for other plug-in developers as well, according to his blog. It is said to be especially useful for helping developers to improve stability. It also includes several perverse tests that might crash a plugin (and the tool). However all tests can be passed.

A detailed manual explains all tests. This tool is open source. Version 1.2 fixes a host emulation bug and adds new tests.

It has been updated with the following changes:
  • Dual Linkwitz-Riley FiltersAdded a magnitude response plot and it is now possible to enter values directly.
  • Added a workaround to make the plugin working in eXT 1.4 and Sound Forge 10 (both suffering from a bug in their VST host implementation, which has been acknowledged, but only been fixed in recent eXT versions). On these hosts (and only then) the workaround patches the VST plugin directly, which might result in a false positive for virus scanners.

Christian says that the online patching mentioned above has also been added to most of his other plug-ins (those that he supports at least).
