Will Mixcraft 10 still load VST2 plugins?

Hi,

I've been reading that some DAWS, since Steinberg has stopped support for VST2, will not even load or recognize VST2 plugins. Will Mixcraft 10 stop being able to load VST2 plugins?

Hi,

Yes, Mixcraft 10 will still load VST2 plugins. There are too many good plugins out there to stop supporting VST2.

But... it will be 64-bit only. We're not making a 32-bit version of Mixcraft 10. It will still be able to load both 64-bit and 32-bit plugins, of course.

I have to wonder where you read this or what DAWs this applies to. I suspect zero, frankly.

Seems that Steinberg's host applications and plug-ins on macOS and Windows will be VST 3 compatible only in the near future....how quickly that spreads to other Daws etc is anyone's guess.....

And then you have CLAP if it manages to get some traction.

I'd say the chances of me ever using a DAW which doesn't support VST2 is about the same as the chances of me winning the lottery.
