Is a VST3 plugin version for BFD3 available

I see Steinberg is about to drop VST2 support.
Given BFD3 is VST2 plugin is there a VST3 version?

Cheers

Steinberg is dropping support for VST2 in cubase 12 for Mac only…as they are refusing to make it M1 native.

still a valid question of course !

Yes but at this stage of change, users like myself will still be using intel macs for a few years to come. I bought one of the last batch of intel macs allowing me to run windows or OS X on the hardware. Eventually when those die out Steinberg will have native M1 code.
But as you point out that’s a side observation. VST3 has already been around for years and some software developers have not put the resources in to make that change in anticipation of VST 2 becoming obsolete. Clearly the lack of vst3 for BFD3 will give Inmusic a bigger hit regards commercial loss of sales and the confidence hit it may give to existing users who trusted them to maintain the software in line with current trends for audio software.
So here’s hoping a vst3 version is on the horizon, I wouldn’t have thought that’s a major change to change code to from VST2.

personally i think Steinberg are using M1 as an excuse for dropping VST2 - there is no decent technical reason why they can’t make it work. It’s a commercial decision.
