I would like to see RB have VST3 and ARA compatability. I recently purchased Melodyne 5 Essentials and can only use it as a stand alone product which is cumbersome to say the least. Being able to access Melodyne 5 within RB as a plugin would be great.
Music is what feelings sound like.

+1. While I believe adding support for both VST3 and ARA will benefit PG Music and users of PowerTrackPro and RealBand, I believe VST3 support is the more important specification. The VST3 specification covers more plugins than ARA.

I would also like to add my vote for VST3 support in BIAB and RB. I have access to lots of cool vintage synth plugins that are VST3 only, and would dearly love to use then.
8 years of piano lessons as a kid, fairly proficient with computers, but complete beginner to BiaB / RB / DAWs in general.
