Maybe Guido will finally deliver on his long-standing promise about a 2.0 Update for the VB3 VSTi?

Good point, and the screen is displaying a bunch of code.
I zoomed in on it, and I think I see "VST" a number of times on the left sidebar...

Now - I wonder if it will have any new tricks versus VB3 Crumar Edition.

I doubt he would have taken the time to invest in a GUI with all new artwork if it wasn't going to be his newest and best version of VB3. This stuff takes time and $.

I have been a critic of Guido's decision to ditch development of VB3 as a 64 bit AU back in 2013. At that time he had outsourced development of the VB3-2 GUI to a third party who didn't deliver and with the Crumar hardware line kicking off VB3-2 took a back seat.

Looking forward to the release of the new AU version. If there is upgrade pricing from VB3 1.4 great, if not I will be happy to pay full price. I much prefer modelled VI's to sampled so expect VB3 2 will replace B-5 as my go to B3 AU.

. . . and it's official:

Guido says in the comments that the sound engine is at parity with the organ engine in the Mojo 61. I was hoping for something a little extra!

The Mojo 61's Leslie sim bugged me when I had one briefly, so I was hoping for a new Leslie sim, at least. Since it was released, Acousticsamples B5 v2 has replaced VB3 1.4 in my rig. I'm looking forward to A/Bing B5 v2 and VB3 v2.

Eagerly waiting for this!
I hope we get a decent "upgrade" price, as I havent fired up VB3 for years (since my mac went 64 bit).
Let's see...

In a Facebook comment, Guido says that he will announce upgrade pricing next week.

Plenty of VB3 users, including me, also spent a further $99 buying 32 Lives to keep 1.4 running. Plus my time invested in debugging 32 Lives when it was first released to get rid of the CPU spikes.

But it is now 6 years since I bought 1.4 for $79 so not bothered whatever the pricing is. However now there is B-5 and Blue 3 in the market priced at $99 each so winning back ex 1.4 users means the pricing has to be competitive.

Me too with the 32 Lives. I toyed with the idea of switching to another emulation, being so thoroughly annoyed at the feeling that we Mac users had been thrown to the wayside. Fact is, none of the others easily gave me the low-register, wooden percussion 'thunk' that Emerson got me hooked on.

Damn you, Keith.

Bobby, you are spot on when you mention Keith.
If it weren't for him, I'd have stopped playing years ago...
He was the master of sound and playing, for sure...

Does this mean Crumar Mojo's will be upgradable to this new version or are we talking just a software release to run on computers?

According to Guido's Facebook comment (see my post above), the VB3-II VI is the same engine as is currently running in the Mojo (VB3-CE - Crumar Edition).

I'm not sure how he will handle future updates to the two platforms.

Hopefully any updates to Mojo VB3 will come to VB3-II and vice versa. I would imagine it would be "easy" for Guido to keep the same code engine for all the versions. If I'm right, this would be great news for all of his customers.

Totally, because everything about software is as easy as it should be, right Guido? wink
