VST system link questions

Is this a solid feature or has it been forgetton and replaced by Vienna Ensemble Pro?

I plan on upgrading to 6 soon. If VST system link is in fact a solid feature, could I buy Cubase Artist and use VST system that way?

BTW, I only use Cubase for composing large sessions so the ability to use VE Pro with others DAWs is not a factor.

It’s still there, just not well proliferated as a typical approach to power constraints.

Use VST System Link with Vienna Pro for greatest flexibility (and stability of setup).
