To Opt In:
-In your steam library, right click on Z3TA+ 2 and click on Properties.
-Go to the tab called BETAS
-Change the drop down to 'Early-Access-Beta'.

Note: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3201845) appears to resolve the issue stated below. Make sure to check your Windows 10 updates, if you are having issues.

It has come to our attention that a recent Windows 10 update has introduced instability in a subset of our plug-ins and may cause SONAR or other Windows DAWs to crash. The problem is related to a change in the timing for thread initialization on Windows, which leads to intermittent crashing on project load, plug-in scanning, or adding these plug-ins to a project. We are able to reproduce the issue and it appears to only affect some systems since it is timing related.

We are actively working on a resolution and will release fixes to the affected plugins as soon as possible.

Plug-ins that may be affected:
  • CA-2A
  • Rapture Pro
  • Rapture Session
  • Z3TA+2

We appreciate your patience while we work to resolve this issue,

- Cakewalk

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.
