2: Efficient development
If you’ve used code::blocks to create a stand-alone application, you’ll appreciate that the application runs immediately after each recompile, accelerating the testing process. You also have to option to use the code::blocks debugging support and have the ability to profile your code for efficiency using the code::blocks plugin for gprof.
Doing this kind of thing with your fresh VST plugins is a bit more of a chore. The dll file you create has to be reloaded into the host each time you make a change to the source and recompile. This becomes a complete headache after a while. Debugging and profiling is not so straight forward either. The goal of this tutorial is to iron out these glitches in your workflow.
