VCV 2.0 approximate release date

Hello! I’m just wondering when VCV RACK 2.0 will be released? Any hints? Thanks! I’ve already bought Host just to show some love to developers. Keep up the great work! VCV is amazing!


There’s been no update of release time since other than when it’s ready.

Soon I hope! Having v2 to play with would certainly make this isolation time sweeter.

Is V2 going to be released in 2020?

I would like to invest my time on VCV, also on the development side, but for my purposes I need to integrate its audio I/O with my DAWs (Reaper, Ableton, Bitwig). Neither Voicemeter nor ASIO Link Pro work well for me (Windows 10, Focusrite 2i4), so I will have to wait for the release of the commercial VCV VST plugin.

I read that it will be released with VCV 2.0. Is it confirmed? Is there any roadmap, at least for a first RC?


There’s been no new official announcements or details of the expected schedule since this post, but many frequent reminders that 2.0 is actively worked on (such as livestreams showing new features).


It would be nice to see VCV for DAW come out soon, would be a nice holiday surprise for everyone, especially with all thats going on. Fingers crossed

The surprise would be VCV for daws coming out before VCV standalone.


In the meantime i read about version 3 in the development post.

Hahaha this is a joke

So, Rack 2.0 didn’t see the light in 2020. I’ll be in my room crying. :sob: :sob:

What changes are you desperate for exactly?

Mostly performance/stability improvements. As it is now, i’ll never use it for live performances.

I’m really looking forward to support for multiple audio modules (game changer in a hybrid setup) and Rack for DAWs of course which I’m hoping will solve some timing/sync issues between DAW, Rack and Hardware that I have never really been able to solve satisfactorily (I can just about get it working but it’s far more of a pain than it should be and not stable between sessions)



Once rack for daw comes out, I dont think I will be using other synth vst all that much. Bridge works ok for me for now, but I really, really, really cant wait for rack for daw, and hopefully the release of Malekko Heavy Industry modules.
