    So after almost a year, what do you think?

    Personally I'm cautious since I had a large template with expression maps set up for the hollywood series, and the quickest way to migrate to Play 6 would be something like resaving every multi I have for every track, then loading each of them again in 6 before saving the template. But will they even load correctly in 6? How did you do the transition?

    I upgraded to Play 6 with a large template and it worked flawlessly.

    Upon further investigation it appears in my infinite wisdom I've used the VST 2 version of play 5 (named play_VST_64) for my template when I first did it. That means I'll have to redo it if I want to go for Play 6 (named Play), which apparently is only in VST 3.

    I'd guess no migration is needed if you made your template with Play 5 VST 3 (released Mar 2017).

    Play 6 also has a "play_VST_64" version which is a VST2.

    All of my templates load using 64bit VST2. I went from 5 to 6 with no issues.

    No issues for me, also seems to load up faster, which is always a plus in my books.
