Hotfix Update:
2.2.16 - 6:30EST - We just pushed out a quick hotfix this afternoon that addressed one issue. The registry keys for VST3 linking had a slight typo. If you're having problems linking the VST3 version of Z3ta+ 2 with our plugin linker applet, run a re-verify of the application cache.

We've posted a new update for the STEAM version of Z3TA+2

Changes:
  • Added the STEAM Plugin Manager, which is also bundled with Rapture Pro and Cakewalk Sound Center. This allows a user to link plugins in the STEAM managed directory, back to their system global vst folder.
  • Changed the order of launch options. Now 64-bit will be listed first on compatible systems. This should help resolve some of the issues Music Creator 7 users have, since the default MC7 option is 64-bit.
  • Plug-in .dll's were previously under a '64bit' and '32bit' subfolder in the 'Vstplugins/Z3TA+ 2' or 'x64/Vstplugins/Z3TA+2' folders. They have been removed from these subfolders and now just live in their respective 'Z3TA+2' folder.
  • STEAM install script cleanup. x86 users will now only have the native x86 version. Previously, users would have both x86 and x64 on their system, regardless of compatibility.
  • Foundation laid for more Z3TA+ 2 Expansion packs.

Z3TA+ 2 comes packed with a massive pool of MIDI programs that power it’s internal Arpeggiator, but why stick to the stock programs when you can make your own?
