Comparison of synthesizer plugin formats

Self-proclaimed experts and lobbyists distribute a lot of missinformation in the web. We spent over 20 years with developing synthesizer plugins as a full-time job. We got deep knowledge about these interfaces.
Since our plugins are available in several formats we don't care which one you use. We're not biased and try to give you a fair comparison from a neutral point of view.

We currently recommend to use the VST2 format for synthesizers if your DAW supports several formats. For you as a musician there is not need to quickly migrate from VST2 to VST3, since all DAW except Cubase that currently support VST2 will continue to support VST2 also in the future. The developers got valid licensing contracts for this.
