There are 2 important advantages to VST3 in a VST3 enabled host:
1. It's transparently easy to set up a sidechain in VST3: insert an instance of the plug in, enable the sidechain, and any channel(s) can then be sent to it. Much clearer, easier and faster than setting up a specialized Quadro channel and manually setting up the routing. If I need a sidechained comp, I will always use a VST3 enabled one.
2. A VST3 plugin is capable of suspending processing if there is no input. The more we mix ITB, the more we are becoming aware of how much CPU is required to process in high quality using internal high internal sampling rates and/or complex math. If all our plugins are doing this, then suspending processing when not in use gives our systems a serious CPU overhead advantage.
There are other advantages (like multi-channel operation) but these are the two most important and relevant for most. Thanks for considering!
