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, 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.
