NullReferenceException in AudioProcessor.cs

Hi Obiwanjacobi,

  I have just generated a plugin based on VstNetAudioPlugin template in Visual Studio 2012. I changed only the UniquePluginId in Plugin.cs. After that i was able to compile the project. Everything seems to be ok but i cannot load it in a host, i tried with Ableton and with the sample host as well. The sample host says the error happens at line #37 in AudioProcessor.cs.

from AudioProcessor.cs:

/// <summary>       
/// Default constructor.       
/// </summary>       
public AudioProcessor(Plugin plugin) : base(AudioInputCount, AudioOutputCount, InitialTailSize)       
            _plugin = plugin;
            _sequencer = _plugin.Host.GetInstance<IVstHostSequencer>(); // this is line #37

            // TODO: We use one delay object to process two audio channels.
            // Typically you would use dedicated DSP objects for each channel.
            Delay = new Delay(plugin);
            // TODO: change this to your specific needs.
            _defaultTimeInfoFlags = VstTimeInfoFlags.ClockValid;
} _plugin.Host is null, i do not know why. :(

Could you please help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

I think I put an old vs-template project in the current release. Big oops! Sorry about that.
I will take down the file untill I have that sorted out. 

Refer to the source code for the VS-templates to fix it.

 I am very sorry for the screw up. 

If you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to post your questions here.

I've updated the VS templates download. Should be ok now.
