Hi - my company has developed an internal-only VST2 plugin host, and it has never been distributed to external users. Are we allowed to continue its development (and continue to never distribute it!) if we haven’t signed a VST2 license agreement already?
Here the official answer from our Steinberg lawers:
"A licence agreement is also required if the only use of the VST2 technology is for internal purposes. Due to the lack of a licence agreement, you are not allowed to use the VST2 technology. Steinberg no longer offers VST2 license agreements. You have the possibility to conclude a VST3 license agreement with Steinberg. We strongly recommend that you do so if you intend to use VST3 technology in the future. "
