running old Steinberg VST 32bit plugins - the unofficial method still works with C10

Just a heads up for people who have older projects running QuadraFuzz, Tonic or other 32-bit plugins made by Steinberg. These plugins are locked to be used with old Cubase/Nuendo only - and therefor jBridge or other 3rd party bridges can’t be used. Only Steinbergs own VSTBridge, which was removed in Cubase 9 and later, can be used.

I just confirmed that the following method works with Cubase 10 (tested with 10.0.30) as well. You just need copy two files from Cubase 8.5.

(be aware that Steinberg does not condone or support this method)

Good to know, thanks for the heads-up!
