It seems that we need to say goodbye to our old VST2 buddies. No problem… Or?
I’ve installed my new PC fresh, without any old stuff, but from time to time I want, or need to load an older project. Then the problems start. The project tries to load a VST2 synth which is not available anymore, but I have the newer VST3 installed, but it is not possible to re-connect the channel to the new plugin? Or am I missing something?
Same happens when for example I open up an older project which uses e.g. Kontakt 5, and now I have only the newest Kontakt installed… I cannot fix this in an easy way? Or?
Thanks a lot!
It depends on the plug-in vendor. If the new version is using the same plug-in ID as the old one, it’s still the same plug-in from Cubase point of cute and it will be loaded instead of the old one. Of the ID is different, then it’s different plug-in from Cubase point of view and Cubase doesn’t have any chance to see and relation between these 2 plug-ins with 2 different IDs.
Understandable, so it is always (or most of the time) a new ID I think, else it would mess up when 2 versions were installed. It would be great if there was some function to transfer/switch the plugin or be able to use the copy, and past settings (with a warning of mismatching id’s and potential errors or so).
