When Steinberg decides to fully document VST3 properly, and provide multiple example projects that we can learn from in the SDK. Then we'll think about it. But as it stands now, the learning curve, digging and code porting trouble to go from VST2 to VST3 (without documentation) very much outweigh the few benefits of going to VST3.

That’s what I suspected. Coding VST3 is much harder than coding VST2, I guess.
Can’t understand why steinberg don’t help developers more

So far every software synth I've ever used that also has a VST3 version provided no benefit over the VST2 version, so I see no point in using VST3.
