    Rolands new line of Aira plugins are all VST 3. So far they have the SH101 and SH2 with more on the way. Also the Roland Integra editor is VST 3. I'd like to use all of these...

    Currently Live does not support VST3 plugins, and at this point we can not tell whether this might change in the future. 

    Please let us know which particular VST3 plugins you would like to use in Live, and what your restrictions are if you use a VST2 version of this plugin ( if there is one ) ? 

    Best, 

    David

    Hey David @ Ableton, we really hope Ableton Live will support VST 3 in the short term, lots of plug-ins today are starting to require this as VST 2.x fades away. The plugs-ins I use that are not working with Ableton being stuck at VST 2.x are Auto-Tune - this plug-in in VST 2 has known issues (bugs) that Antares knows about, i.e., plug-in window goes blank when multiple instances of the plug-in are loaded into a session making it impossible to edit, and they have fixed in their VST 3 version. Synchroarts ReVoice Pro 3, doesn't work correctly with Ableton's VST 2 architecture, without VST3, you cannot 'spot' the audio From ReVoice back into Ableton, and therefore, you lose the timing, which, is the whole point of that software. the VST 3 version will work as expected, though. those are the 2 I need which don't work in Ableton 9.x. ..Has anyone started to wonder why we have't heard any news about Ableton Live 10? Hope Ableton can get caught back up, but folks I'm not holding my breath, I am looking at moving to Pro Tools to fix my recording issues with Ableton. I have also confirmed with a colleague of mine who uses Cakewalk Sonor - that Sonor now supports VST3.

    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

    No, none of the versions of live currently support vst3. But steinberg have made the SDK for vst2 unavailable as of the end of 2013.

    Ableton support got back to me they say. They don't think  Live will ever be compatible with VST 3.

    Waves "Vocal Rider" misses the sidechain input which is essential for the function of this plugin, because it promises to adjust the level of the vocals according to the level of the music which is introduced to the plugin via the sidechain input.

    Waves suport say the sidechain input is diesabled because Ableton doesn't support VST3 and they say the sidechain input wouldn't even show up if Ableton would support VST3...???

    Ok as I read Ableton say they will never ever provide VST3 compatibility so it is no use thinking about this matter.

    Looks like I have bought a plugin in that will never ever work with my DAW...

    HALion 5 is really powerful VST3 granular synth, I would really like to use it inside Live.

    I've always thought of Ableton as a cutting edge developer. 

    Why is Ableton lagging behind ?

    Yeah, I'm looking into changing DAWs now.  I've proven that mixing and mastering can be done in Live with professional results, but without VST3 support, Live is still behind its competitors.  I need VST3 for Antares plugins (Autotune), and Waves plugins (Vocal and Bass Rider).  Even WaveLab, Audition, and Adobe Premiere supports VST3, lol.

    I am now in the same boat as the rest of Ya'll.  Ableton is like my religion, but man its frustrating to not be able to use my New Integra 7's plugin editor because of a compatibility issue.  I preach Ableton has a way around everything, but this sucks.

    Revoice Pro 3 is VST3.  Please, Ableton, this is a serious omission on your part.  If you don't incorporate compatibility with the latest technology, you'll lose dedicated fans and users to other DAWs.

    I wish the Ableton team would make an official statement about this, but I suspect the underlying architecture of Ableton Live does not have the ability to support the technology of VST3 plugins.  Otherwise, no doubt in my mind that Ableton would be supporting this for a couple of years now.  Their software is typically at the front of technology and is continuously refreshed, so the only reasonable explanation is that it would require a fundamental change in processing to support VST3.  Could we see that change in Ableton Live 10?

    it's possible that they have seen how crazy successful apple turned with the Steve Jobs model - create an ecosystem of bullshit... errr.. i mean audio devices make it all proprietary and squeeze out all competition with litigation. maybe they have some new tools coming up that will blow doors!! but no vst3, no opensource etc....

    think about it, ableton push.. and with Max 7 -they have some big plans I tell ya!

    time to dust of that old copy of audacity.
