Long time coming, but it's apparently officially official:
Interested to see what this means going forward for plugins and DAWs that have relied on VST2 support.
I kinda hope this prods someone like Duda or Slate's army of programmers to sit down and write an open source, reasonable-to-implement plugin format that gets picked up, and takes it out of a proprietary vendor's hands. Bonus points if it ports easily to Linux.
I knew it was going to happen at some point, but I honestly thought most developers would have offered upgrades to customers to VST3 by then..which hasn't happened for the most part.
Granted..more and more developers are now offering VST3 versions of their software, but many more have yet to make that jump..which made me smile when I read this on their site..
“We appreciate that developers and users alike gravitate strongly toward the VST 3 interface that comes with many technological advancements."
Looks like we're all going to be faced with buying the new VST3 versions..which, again, was kind of a given. I just hope the DAW makers out thee continue to support VST2 in their future updates and don't drop it altogether, seeing as there's no longer any official support for it.
