Hi GString, this have to do with this poll because someone ask if we have to pay for a 7.5 update, was just a clarification why we should not pay for that. After one year of waiting we have to pay again?

I asked a question on HOW MUCH . There are 95% of threads being turning into the same moaning issues so please use one of them .
Anyway I pretty sure we will find out tomorrow what we are in for price wise ;)

What's the point. They release it, we pay for it. Or don't. Whatever happens everyone here (yes that is YOU whoever you are) pays if it's a paid upgrade and then moans again. After they've already moaned about the paid upgrade before it was a paid upgrade or moaned about all the free upgrades not having THEIR particular bug-fix or programmed in their finicky way of working at 192kHz using every top range plugin available after recording an orchestra that was so out of tune every instrument needed pitch-shifting and so out of time it all needed time correction.
Of course only hardened professional studios can afford the (paid for) upgrade. :?: of $50 or so.
Cubase works just fine. However it isn't "genius" proof.

Guess being the operative word. When I read stuff like this I take it with a big grain of salt, as well as the conclusions that might be drawn from it.

Apple were great innovators in the web development space and brought us HTML5 which has revolutionized the world with native MPEG, MP4 etc

There are many other companies that don't even bother with APPLE or MAC support or even use them.


For VST we *must* deal with UNIX/OSX because that's where the compilers live.

I use the Microsoft C# compiler. This one "lives" on Windows, Windows 7 in my case.

Actually it is often very entertaining to read your postings, because they, more often than not, remind me of standup comedy.

How old are you, if I may ask?

What are you talking about? Almost 100% of Windows software is compiled on Windows PCs.

The tools are amazing, and the stability is also ok.

Compiling Windows software on a *nix is an odd concept. Not unheard of, but odd, nevertheless.

Doubtful because of Mac, of which a direct port would always be made first.

No MAC OSX is just copycat of LINUX Unix.
Apples has not come up with anything except steal it, marking it and selling it for overprice.


The real core is----> Linux-UNIX. I can guarantee you many of all the programmers on Apple use Linux in their free time. All features like "windows that fly" GUI-look, other features etc. comes from example LINUX KDE.
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-WZkAr0vQ7PM/U ... pshot1.png

Everything has always come from LINUX. By the way LINUX are years ahead of Mac OSX Mavericks too.



If you like Mac use it! Please, I don't want to hijack this thread! This forum is about Cubase and music not OS.
Have a great day, over and out! ;)


Best Regards
Freddie :)

Hi Fred, one of the first things i learnt about computers is that Apple in the early times had used their own system but the hardware was equivalent to Atari, which allowed better timing than on early PC's.

ROFL, you might want to take a gander at where html5 came from .. the only reason apple adopted early (notice the word adopted, not created) it was to get out from under the stranglehold flash had on the content serving world.

EDIT: and were NOT among the first to put it in their browser as standard support ... see opera and others for that distinction.

that's interesting, so when I compile VST instruments on my Windows machine a magic Unix VM poofs into existence so the code can be compiled?

Better integration?

I don't think so.

It's just "less choice, so a whole company can focus on a few hardware options."

I prefer the openness and freedom of the PC platform, regardless of the Windows / Linux - question. I just use Windows because there is no Cubase and no VST plugins for Linux. If there were, Windows would be gone forever from this machine.
