Default VST Extensions VST3

Hello!

We are creating a drum sampler VST and just added a feature where drum names are visible in REAPER's clip editor. This is great and vastly improves the user experience. Currently this only works for VST2. Is it possible to access REAPER extensions from VST3 too? In the documentation (https://www.reaper.fm/sdk/vst/vst_ext.php) only VST2 is mentioned. If so is there a reference implementation to look at?

It's possible but there are no buildable examples at the moment. (I have done an example plugin with Juce that uses the Reaper API, but it has been a mess trying to keep that up to date because the Juce developers haven't added support for doing that...)

Isn't reporting key names actually a VST spec feature that is extremely rarely used?

Yeah, i found your project and it was of great help already for VST2. Thanks for sharing! I'll take a look what you did there with VST3 and how much modifications a JUCE fork would need.
