VCV Rack 2.3.0 showing VST incompatible on Ableton Live 11 in Windows 10

Hi, I got VCV rack 2 for Windows and it was working fine on my Ableton previously. Now when I add it as a VST plugin, it shows that VCV Rack 2.3.0 is incompatible for VST usage. What do I do?

Hi, and welcome here on the forum.

Assuming you’re Rack 2 Pro owner, and you are using 64-bit Ableton Live 11. VCV Rack 2 now is 64-bit.

What is the VST plugin format (is VST2, or VST3) who causing this trouble?

Version of Ableton Live ?

From my Ableton Live v11.2.11 Lite - 64-bit (I don’t have Standard/Suite, Lite only), both VST and VST3 can be loaded without any issue. VCV Rack 2 Pro v2.3.0, Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (64-bit).

I saw the same thing at a friend of mine, all plugins versions are installed, VST, VST3, AU and Clap.

She has a macbook pro m1, I did install VCV while using Ableton in Rosetta and then the VST of Rack showed up. But using ableton in Rosetta is a huge CPU hog as I saw.

After the switch back to ARM, the VST’s were not available again. Rack 2.3

I have Ableton 11 suite on a win 10 machine and it works fine as vst 2 or 3. How were you using it previously with Ableton if not as a vst?

I’m also on the m1 and the VSTs don’t show up. I can see my reason VST in ableton, but I can’t see VCVRack neither in Reason as VST nor in Ableton. Pleas investigate @steve

I suggest you write to VCV support. I don’t have an M1, I don’t use Ableton and I don’t work for VCV.

oh sorry for this wrong tagging. I mixed you up.

Could this be it ?


BTW Bad that there is no ability to trial exactly plugin form of vcv2 before purchase for be sure about compatibility.

Hi, try this, for the plugin vst2 ;rename the folder in where are the host and fx *.dll

C:\Program Files\VSTPlugins\VCV Rack 2
