I hope this feature gets supported soon! I just got a Roli Seaboard Block 25 key keyboard hoping to be able to work with it inside Studio One 5. The VST that the Seaboard comes with called Roli Studio Player will only run as a VST3 inside Studio One 5. So unfortunately it will sound glitchy whenever you press two notes at once in the current version.

Equator (by ROLI) runs as VST2 and VST3 inside Studio One. Unfortunately, the most recent ROLI installer hides the installed VST2 version. In order to fix this, you need to remove the VST3 dll manually from the VST3 plug-ins folder. This will make the VST2 re-appear in Studio One next time you launch. Hope this helps.

Yes, please fix this as soon as possible! The workaround below might help with Equator and Roli Studio, but the recently released Equator 2 no longer comes with a VST2 version.

@arndkaiser Thank you for mentioning this. I did some digging and found it is similar with ROLI Studio Player. You have to trick Studio One 5 into not recognizing the VST3 version, and only use the VST2 file.

Navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3
The file "ROLI Studio Player.vst3" can either be deleted, or renamed ROLI Studio Player.broken, something like that. This forces the software to not recognize it.

Then, the VST2 version is stored in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2

So you have to add this as a plugin location within Studio One.
You'll know it works if it says "Category: VST2" in the bottom right corner.
Also be sure to enable MPE for your device, as well as enable MPE in the vst window.
Hope this helps for the time being until VST3 is implemented :)

You need to make sure the Category is VST2
