I'm hoping someone from Steinberg might be able provide some insight into what changed between OS X versions 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and 10.9 (Mavericks) with regard to Cubase 6.5.
Does anyone know what can we expect to fail or stop working? Are the incompatibilities limited to a subset of functionality. For example, if the problem area were VST but a user only ever used MIDI, then there might not be any issues at all if you see what I mean.
The reason I ask is that this page:
STEINBERG PRODUCT COMPATIBILITY INFO REGARDING MAC OS X 10.9 MAVERICKS
states cubase 7 is compatible with Mavericks but:
Older products not listed are not compatible with Mac OS X Mavericks
However, I installed Mavericks and Cubase 6.5.5 on an old iMac and was able to load and play a selection of my projects with no problems
I assume that when Steinberg imply that Cubase 6.5.5 is not compatible, what they actually mean is that it is untested, unsupported and not guaranteed to work.
So I think it would be useful to know in advance if there are any known actual incompatibilities as I don't want to upgrade to V7 unless I absolutely have to.
