I’m getting back into Cubase after a few years away and the version 6 upgrade. I had initially installed the 64-bit version of Cubase, but the repeated problems with my 32-bit plugins (Korg and Arturia being the most critical to my work) have caused me to downgrade to the 32-bit version.
This got me thinking about the “distributed VST” that Steinberg announced a few years back, and I see nothing mentioned about it recently. VStack (the remote host) doesn’t even list Windows Vista support, but at least the download is still there on the site.
I’d really like to explore this more as a solution to this. It would be very easy for me to set up a second computer running Windows XP or Windows 7 32-bit so I could handle all of my “legacy” plugins in a different engine and keep my main Cubase instance 64-bit to take advantage of max audio tracks and the newer 64-bit instruments.
Is this even possible any more in Cubase 6? Is anyone using this?
