There was a comment on SB's forum by an SB's employee to that effect, but I think it was misinterpreted. That he was only talking about the Apple Silicon Native version.chk071 wrote: ↑Sat Dec 04, 2021 4:28 amNo. Sidechaining is VST3 only in Cubase, but, Cubase runs VST2 also.
Not sure where the rumours come from that say VST2 is dropped on Apple M1 computers. I'd wait for something official. As this thread proves well, rumours could be incorrectly interpretated.
And now, everyone who just reads the headline thinks that Steinberg will drop VST2 in their DAW's.
