For me, I don't. I understand that it's a thing and that people need to be able to do it, but I don't use it.

In a perfect world, everyone updates. But I think many devs are reluctant. I don't even begin to understand the reasons why, I just use the stuff :lol:

They're not killing support for VST2 in their products though, so they're not exactly "killing it off". Devs can still get ahold of VST2 SDK from other devs I'd assume :D

The latest Superwave P8 version by Christopher Gill is shown as a version VST 1.0. And it is 64 bit. It works. I didn't think anything VST 1.0 would work today?
Windows 10 64bit, Wavelab 9.5, latest Cubase version, 64 gig all drives SSD,s (Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050ti driving 2 34" LG ultra wides and 1 28" all @2560x1080) iCon QconPro, Metagrid, 4 MidiTimePiece's = 32in/outs,, UAD-2, NI, Waves, Arturia, and lots of hardware synthesizers most of them controlled by MidiQuest 11.

To this party kind of late, so obviously right now Cubase 10 pro supports vst2 correct? and future Cubase will still allow older plug ins to work? Or has this changed at all since jan 2019? Thanks

Yes, it supports VST2.

For "future Cubase", I suppose you would need to ask someone who has been there (to the future, that is).

VST2 will be supported into the foreseeable future, i.e. Cubase will continue to be able to host VST2 plugins; the only thing related to VST2 that is no longer supported by Steinberg is the VST2 "SDK", the software developer's kit for that version. By "no longer supported", it just means the SDK will see no further development. New developments will happen in the VST3 SDK. If you're not a software developer, it need not concern you.

So, what this means:

-- if you have VST2 plugins you like that work in Cubase 10, they will continue to work into the future*
-- if a software developer wants to create a new 64-bit VST2 plugin, that will work in Cubase too

*Cubase is now 64-bit only and has long only supported 64-bit VST2 plugins; 32-bit VST2 plugins are no longer supported in Cubase.
Windows 10 • Cubase 10.5.0 • WaveLab 10.0.0 • SpectraLayers 6.0.20 • HALion 6.3.1 • Groove Agent 5.0.20 • Midex

Cool thanks a lot, no I am not a programmer so thanks for the layman's definition, that's very good to know - because if you think it means you can no longer use vst2 plug-ins that you have, one may get very worried about that!
