Dear fellow devs,
i just started out developing audio plugins and planning on starting a business with that.
Since a few days i am sleeping bad because i found out that distributing VST2 PlugIns will be illegal for me as i didn’t sign a license agreement with Steinberg before October 2018.
This would be a major drawback for any new business trying to sell audio plugins, since one of the most used DAW (and my beloved favourite) didn’t support VST2 until recently in their current major version.
But i have the feeling a lot of artists will use Ableton 9 at least for another year or two, or even beyond.
After spending the last days digging every thread in the usual forums, i have found this:
Is it legal to distribute stuff compiled with this header?
