NAMM06: Steinberg Releases VST 2.4 Standard

World’s leading audio interface standard gets host of new features      21/01/06
Steinberg have announced the release of the SDK for a new version of its Virtual Studio Technology interface standard.
The latest 2.4 version of the world’ s most popular plug-in standard offers new features for developers of audio applications and plug-ins, including full support for 64-bit audio, double precision floating point capability and complete compatibility with the newest Intel-based Apple Macintosh computers.
Markus Stehlik, Steinberg’s Director of Engineering had this to say about the new release“VST 2.4 offers a set of new features that place it firmly at the cutting edge of audio technology. In updating our VST standard with the new features, we are ensuring its compatibility with the technologies of today and tomorrow, and we will continue to provide VST with new specifications as new technologies develop in the future.�
VST 2.4 allows developers of third party plug-ins and VST instruments to build products that run natively on 64-bit platforms. Double precision (64-bit) floating point audio samples are also supported to allow even higher resolution audio processing with VST. The included Mini Host example application allows for testing of 64-bit plug-ins in a suitable environment, while the new VST Parameters Structure allows plug-in programmers to make the available parameters even easier for the end customer to find and utilize.
The VST SDK has also been given a general overhaul for the 2.4 version, making it clearer and simpler to use.
