    Dual Boot: Back to W7 and Ubuntu 12.04

    shows here you should be okay:

    Windows 8 Compatibility for Steinberg Cubase version 5 from Steinberg Media Technologies

    as far as Cubase goes, your plugins should work as well. I had no trouble with Sonar or any of my VST's. I have amplitube and it ran as well. I did have to reinstall Sonar because some of the settings didn't carry over and it was easier to start fresh. I of course can't guarantee anything.

    You could make an image of your XP system, run the upgrade and see what it does though..

    WIn 8 Pro 64bit

    I have migrated with Reason and Ableton Live, and both are running better now on Win 8 Pro than before (on windows7). I have yet to encounter an application or program that doesn`t run on Win8
    Btw: I also have a lot of plugins and all of them run just fine! My tip: Upgrade to 8!
