@X-BassistVEP7 added more functionality and has been a smooth upgrade process (all my many templetes open fine when migrated from 5 to 6 to 7
I also waited a while, but figured I would give it a shot a couple of weeks ago. I’ve noticed no problems in templetes with a few hundred midi tracks, but I’m working in Pro Tools 2019 (on Mac High Sierra), not cubase.@X-Bassist
I left VEpro 7 on the shelf in my VSL to grow a little, I did see a significant amount of complaints about it, crash, slow boot up and plugins disappeared,
This could be down to project size and very heavy usage, as the complaints came from very heavy users, may i ask your setup and usages and DAW as most complaints came from cubase users.
Well i must say this is very encouraging, thanks for the info. i do feel a bit better about it now.I also waited a while, but figured I would give it a shot a couple of weeks ago.

TBH I like the small features added, but there is not a huge difference between 6 and 7. I’m a little disappointed they have you pay for updates that have so few improvements, but I realize we are getting to that point where software upgrades are becoming refinements instead of new features. The same is true of Mac OS (I can’t tell the difference between Mavericks and Mojave, or all the versions between) and Pro Tools (the latest, although some good new features, looks and works just like PT9 thru PT12 and 2018... Yet still no track folders (#1 requested feature for years)
I suppose they are concerned we will get to the ultimate DAW then stop paying them. They are not wrong. But a virtual assistant (setting up tracks, suggesting eq/ compression settings, suggestions for instruments that could be added to a song) would be an interesting add that would excite new buyers. Hopefully they will realize forging forward will be more profitable than slowing down progress.
Back OT, VEP6 had gotten as solid as 5 (which was a rock in the end), so if you need 2 or 3 licenses it may be better to stick with 6 for a while. My system starts slowing on large film sessions, so I’m hoping 7 will make things smoother eventually. So far, so good.
