Vst 3 Issues

Hmmm, it seems to me that VST 3 has some major bumps. My main complaints are

I would like the vst3 files to be able to be placed in categories of my choosing. For instance I think plugins should be able to be categorized by the company who designs them, or by the type of instrument and or effect that they are. Reverbs with reverbs, drum machines with drum machines, etc.


The VST3 should automatically and without any issues be able to replace older vst2 plugins. As of now, I would have to go in and manually change
each plugin I have that is in VST2 to become a VST3.
If I delete the vst2 version of a plugin, Cubase should automatically identify that as the same plugin but then replace it with the vst3 version.


you can put the VST3 plugins in any category and arrange them as you like, if you create a personal collection in the Plugin Manager. You can copy the Default collection and use it as a starting point, then create different folders (rename folders, move plug-ins, etc.) and set it up the way you want. The category in which each VST3 plug-in is displayed is already chosen by the plug-in manufacturer.

Cubase will use the VST3 version in place of the VST2 only if they have the same ID (for example, Apulsoft’s apTrigga 3 and Overloud’s TH3 are coded this way). If not, they are seen as different plug-ins and Cubase cannot use the VST3 in place of the VST2 version.
