Hi Gang,

It's been a year since someone asked this question so wanted to check-in....

Does BWS now support VST3 plugs? I know a lot of people don't need this but it's of the most importance to me (and I don't think I'm alone). My whole setup is VST3 based. Been a long time Cubase user but hate the "work-flow". Tried BWS and it blew me away! But all my plugs are VST3. I don't even load other types, so I'm stuck.

So Bitwig, you have a potential customer (and I don't think I'm alone) ready to make the switch the minute you add VST3 support!


No, not currently - we do have plans to implement this, but very probably not in the next releases. Most plugins are still available as VST2.

Also want to weight in on the need for vst3 support anybody out there that agrees make yourself known so the bitwig team will give this a higher priority Thanks.

Except for waves, and similar plug ins. Those are not available in vst2. Bitwig has yet to recognize my waves plugins.
