Yes what you are suggesting could be nice. Just remember that the .sgu files are very small and easy to make and remake. Save and save over and over as you continue to develop the song. I sometimes save them as song.sgu then song.sgu1. 2 3 etc.

What I really like most about this is how organic it sounds. The instruments and vocals go together wonderfully - nice mix, good singing.

She is a studio singer in Indy as well as in Nashville and has learned her way around home recording. I know there are some who look for singers for your recordings. I don’t know what she charges; but she can sight read anything and sing any style. https://youtu.be/ubaYXTkuzI8

Steinburg stopped supporting VST2 development early in 2013. They removed all access to the VST2 SDK development kit in +++ May, 2018 +++ Steinburg released the first VST3 specification in 2008. However the VST3 specification remains a moving target with the current specification at V3.7.4. On a side note the V3.7 specification includes full support for MIDI 2.0. V3.7 was released in 2020 about the same time as MIDI 2.0. My guess is there are some big changes regarding what a VST plugin
