Cubase Tracker with limited editing possibilities, available for registered customers. A bare bones multitrack recorder under the arm with 16 or [insert number here] inputs in a box under the other arm would certainly open some possibilities. Kind of an multi track eyedropper tool for you to sample separated parts of your reality and then take it back to the lab to frankesteinize!!! Yummy!

The same executable gets installed on your studio computer and on your laptop. If you need to do a "heavyweight" mobile session then you need the USB eLicenser, otherwise you travel without it and get, say, 8 audio tracks for recording and playback, no mixer or editing, and playback only of MIDI tracks, no internal VSTis, just external MIDI and 3rd-party VSTis as this might be necessary for guide tracks or demonstration.
So: USB Key => full capabilities, no USB-Key => limited "portable" mode.
From a marketing perspective this would also act as a disincentive to Cubase users trying out cheaper, less restrictive DAW products -- and perhaps getting to like them!
There is some light at the end of the tunnel ... Steinberg announced "seamless project compatibility between all Cubase 6 derivatives" and the ability to "exchange projects with other studios or friends that run a smaller Cubase 6 version".Strophoid wrote:I would love a basic Cubase version which can playback existing projects and do some light editing for when on the stage/at friends etc.

There's unfortunately no legal way for anyone to obtain a copy any more though ... unless you pick it up as part of a second-hand sale of an audio interface. There's also no easy way to get a Cubase 6 project into it ... and IIRC, it was based on SX1, and I think Cubase 5 and upwards no longer have the ability to import projects older than SX3?mashedmitten wrote:LE1.07 does exactly what you are saying.
