Vintage compressor mk2

The new vintage compressor mk11 sounds different from the Cubase 6 vintage compressor.
If you insert the vintage compressor in Cubase 6 and then open the same session in Cubase 7 the mk2 version is used instead of the original vintage compressor.
I bounced a file in Cubase 6 with the vintage compressor and opened it in Cubase 7 and flipped the phase against the same file with the mk2 and they didint null and the levels were way off.
Makes me think that mixes won't open sounding exactly the same in Cubase 7 if you used the vintage compressor in Cubase 6.
Why didn't they just call it something totally different??
Weird.

Agreed. They should just put the "mk2" and everybody would be fine.

Finish your previous Cubase mixes in the previous version. Bounce the wavs for backup. New mixes in the new version.

The good thing is that the new Vintage Compressor sounds much better. Never found any use for the old one. MkII is a lot punchier and I wouldn't hesitate to use it for heavy drum compression and such.

But as you say, it makes old projects sound different.
