Re: Steinberg announces Windows VST Plug-in limitation issue

Hi all

I've been having this issue lately when trying to complete a couple of projects and getting very frustrated by it! I have been experimenting to determine what the exact limitation is. And I think I'm pretty close. It looks like on my system (Windows 8.1, Cubase 8.5 & 9) that I can only use 64 unique vst plugins. I can have multiple instances of each, but just can exceed 64 different plugins.

So by at least knowing this I can restructure my project.

Hope this offers some insight
Brent

On the PreSonus forum a Microsoft representative told us the FLS limit will go up from 128 to 4000 in the next release of Windows 10 (19H1) if all goes well (https://forums.presonus.com/viewtopic.p ... 87#p192687).

As noted elsewhere on these forums - Microsoft have fixed the FLS limit in Windows 10 and will be released with build 19H1. Which should be 1st quarter(ish) this year.
