W10 FLS Slot Limit Increase

FWIW, I tried out the FLS Checker plugin, and it maxes out at 128.

Nice to see you here, Mr. Pete Brown,  may the sun never set on the Microsoft/Cakewalk friendship.

So the FLS checker VST itself has a similar limitation? Hmm.

It counts how many slots you are using and subtracts that number from 128. If the result is <0 it returns "+-0".

I'll guess the person who coded it didn't know how to ask the OS how many slots were available so they did the best they could (it's somewhere in <iostream>?). Or they just didn't want to bother. Nice that it handles the >128 condition gracefully.

And, good sir, you:

1. Have access to 18, 312 plug-ins on your DAW computer.

2. Which can load 4000 of them and still run Visual Studio.

I'd say it's good ta be da king!

Pretty sure the FLS Checker VST simply has a hard-coded 128 in it. I assume, when you click "update", it has a loop that tries to allocate slots up to 128 and stops when it gets the error, and then just frees them all. That's my assumption anyway.
