Dear community,

As some of you already noticed, we released a new patch for VEGAS Pro 15 earlier today!

This patch addresses many issues that were keeping some of you from using the new So4compoundplug, and it will make that much more stable for you. There are a few other fixes and a few new/imroved features as well. The list below gives you specifics of Update #3. We look forward to your feedback in our general discussion thread.
