I have purchase upgrade from 6.5 to 7.5 but am very wary of installing it since reading the note that older <=vst 2.3 SDK versions may not be compatible.
Firstly, I have a huge investment in these plugins and cannot afford to buy new ones.
Secondly I find it surprising that a) the note about compatibility is hidden away in a readme file which I could only view once I purchased the software! b) the use of the word “may”. Why can’t we get some detail as to what is known/not known to work rather than relying on forums or at least a description of what are the specific reasons that would make a 2.3 plugin work or not work.
Has anyone complied a list of older plugins that work / don’t work / have workarounds etc.?
Can anyone provide their experiences with the following ones that I am specifically interested in:
Roger Nichols Uniquel-izer
Native Instruments Pro 53
TC Works - Mercury
IK Multimedia AmgegSVX
Native Instruments B4II
Korg M1, MS-20, Polysix, Wavestation
Also interested in any feedback regarding waves plugins v5. I’ve heard only version 9 and above work in Cubase 7.5 in which case I have to choose to dump $1000s of waves investment vs $300 worth of Cubase investment.
