Rack Pro - VST2 or VST3?

Is there a reason to use VST3 rack plugin over VST2? Or vice versa?

Looks like there are still a few problems with the VST3 and certain DAWS. I’d go for VST2 for now.

So weird, :rofl: I’ve been considering asking the exact same question lately. So I did a bit of research, but not much.

What I’ve read online is that VST3s are generally more CPU efficient and allow more routing options, but I don’t know if this is the same with Rack. I’ll have to do some tests to know.

I use Studio One, and the VST3 does not allow multiple midi input channels, so I’ll stick with the VST2 for now. But I would also love to know if there are any benefits to using VST3.
