I think Ruie is better equipped to answer this, but I believe the Vocalizer add-on is Pithone 3 ready.

Will python 3 compatible synthesizers be backwards compatible with 2019.2?
Or will vocalizer and other synth users need to:
1. disable the current synth
2. upgrade to 2019.3
3. Download the synth update and re-enable the synthesizer

Thanks,
Mike
