For some reason I can’t get Cubase 12 or Nuendo 12 to show MIDI Guitar 2 for ANYTHING! I checked blacklist, and everything. I then tried it on Studio One v 6, and it loads the plugin automatically there.
I’ve shutdown, rebooted, and everything, but no luck. Please advise.
Googled “cubase12 vst2 support”
and got: VST2 plugins are no longer supported in Cubase 12 . There’s likely to be a number of posts saying particular plugins have disappeared or no longer working, and this would be why. Most currently developed plugins have VST3 versions, but you may have some favorite plugs that won’t work in Cubase 12.
JO himself states that there is no vst3 version yet, and Cubase 12 officially doesnt support vst2.
So I suspect you are on macos, and you are using the audio unit plugin version…
Audio units plugins as a fallback are not available on windows ofcourse, and that is the problem of OP
Yet another excellent reason to avoid Cubase specifically and Steinberg in general. What a high-handed, could not care less about their customers, approach to product development.
New plugin developers are unable to get access to the VST2 SDK and are forced to develop to the VST3 standard. But…long-time developers with the existing VST2 SDK can still use it, and do, sometimes not even releasing a VST3 version. They might be too small or not have the bandwidth to learn and develop for a new standard.
Some of my favorite plugins are VST2-only. A couple of others are still shipping buggy VST3 versions, so I still use the VST2 versions.
Hi! I’m using Cuibase 12 for serveral months now and have tons of VST2 plugins, that are found by Cubase 12 and can be put in as effect, plugin or instrument. That includes MG2.
They all are useable/loadable in Cubase 12 without any problem.
The thing is: Cubase 12 won’t accept any 32bit version of any vst.
Just choose to install the 64bit version of the VSTs and everything seems to be fine.
That’s, what I have done.
In case, you meant Midi Guitar 2:
It’s available at Download – Jam Origin . All Versions can be fetched there (Windows, Mac, IOS)
In the Windows version, while installing, one will be asked for the location of the 32bit VST, the 64bit VST and the standalone part og MG2. So all you need, is to set the right locations.
By ordering a license for it, you’ll be E-Mail sent a file to put into the install locations, which will transform the demo version to a full one.
