    It currently does not support VST3, I hope they add VST3 support as a incremental update for Live 9.

    They are going to have to adopt VST3 very soon, as Steinberg the creators of VST2 will stop the SDK for VST 2 and will be made unavailable by the end of this year.

    Hooray, hurry hurry do it!! ... because I have Yamaha hardware with VST3 interface software, and I hate Cubase!!!

    BRING IT ON...LIVE WITH VST3!

    +1 for VST3 support. This is a disappointing reality, what's the hold up?

    Roland are now making VST 3 and AU only software synths of their older hardware.  SH-2 plugin comes out next week and nobody with  Ableton live running on Windows   can use it. This will push many away from Live. How hard can it be to add VST 3 support the other DAWs have it.

    Dear Abelton Team,

    we really need urgently VST3 support, because we have to use Antares AutoTune 8, which only supports VST3. Please try to understand your customers which want to use Ableton but also the full range of VST3 plugins on the market. If that's not possible Ableton is no longer on a professional level.

    Regards

    DJ SNice

    yes, vst3 should be supported by live, as for example all the sidechain-functions of the waves plugins only work in vst3 and au (which is not officially supported by waves). So at the moment it is not possible to use the sidechain functions of the waves plugins, which is a pitty.

    Being a Cubase user over years, all i can say is, it must be very hard for Ableton to get a VST3 support permission from Steinberg. Cause Steinberg is not loyal to their genuine customers & keep asking them for huge upgrade price ! NO surprise if they doing same with Ableton & other DAW developers lol !

    Well **** no wonder why 64bit HALion 5 wouldn't work... no VST3 Support :(  

    What's up with that ?

    Padshop Pro is such a cool VST3 too, not to mention the Antares stuff... 

    VST3 multi-threaded support offers some really big advantages when working with large sample files and multiple independently side-chained effect channels.

    I hope Ableton gets their butts in gear and gets moving on this   :)

    Halion 5 is also a 32 bit VST plugin, not just VST3. Currently , I am using  both Halion 5 and halion Sonic as 32 bit VST plugins with LIVE 9.

    I´ve purchased waves vocal rider. It took me some time to realize it won 't work because the sidechain functionality isn't availlable with vst2.

    waves suport told me it would work with vst3 - but it would never work with Ableton-Live even if Ableton would support vst3. I don't know if he misunderstood my question. Anyway he wasn't able to tell me why...

    Can anybody tell me?

    Hey guys,

     

    I recently acquired a roland aira system 1 and my ultimate purpose was to use the plugout of the SH101. Unfortunately and expressed before, Ableton Live 9 (which i possess) doesn't support VST3 on the PC (which is my machine). 

     

    You can imagine my disappointment and frustration... 

     

    When are you guys (ableton's programmers) going to solve this? Are you currently working on it? I mean your program is a reference but on this matter, there is a great room for improvement... 500€ is a lot for most of us and trully, we deserve some support here...

     

    Crossing my fingers for an answer...

    Just bought and downloaded the new SH-101 plug-out synth and - BOOM, doesn't work with Ableton 9.2 64bit [MAC 10.9.5]. Yes, I should have read the fine print and checked all the compatibility but USUALLY the latest version of Ableton and a pretty updated OS covers this kind of thing.

    As an aside - Roland also has NOWHERE to contact customer support. Pretty much the least customer-friendly web presence I've ever seen.

    Looks like I'm now stuck with a $150 plug-in that I can't use. 

    Ableton - it's on YOU now. Get to work on VST3 support.

    I just upgraded to Live 9 Suite 64bit and I ran in to the same problems with VST3's for Antares Auto Tune 7 and EFX 2. The solution I found was to use AU instead of VST's for the time being. Yes it really kills my CPU but it works. And thats all I care about.
