It seems that Cubase 10.0.0 will not support Mojave either!
How could that be? That would be a huge deal for a lot of people!

How do you know this? As far as I understand, Steinberg haven't yet given the results of testing 9.5 with Mojave, let alone made any comments about 10 working with Mojave - you know, the Cubase 10 that hasn't even been released yet.

It's a lot more than speculation.

Add to that the 9.5.41 is still not supported, and people claim problems with it on mojave and cubase. Steinberg have had two month with the official release and many months with beta access so either steinberg suck or apple suck.

How do you access this page? Is it a mock up? I can't access this page when I go through the shop pages.

It's not linked in the shop pages - yet. It's a preparation for the release. It will be linked when it's released.
Until then you're not supposed to access it.
Someone found the link in Google, by googling "Cubase 10", and there it was.
(If you look at the adress url it's the same adress as for the 9.5 page, except that 95 is exchanged for 10.)

It's reasonable to assume that they first fulfil testing and have Cubase working as expected for that OS too before they list it as officially supported. After that, when it's ready, one can expect that also Mojave will be listed as officially supported (sooner or later).

I think there's some conclusion jumping here. How could a major piece of software launch without support for the current OS version? That'd be ridiculous.

I'm running 9.5 on Mojave right now and it works perfectly fine.

Most users only uses a fraction of the functionality. To do a proper testing the need use a code coverage tool and zillions of test cases. Are you using T2 enabled hardware?

Look, I also enjoy a bit of speculation and wondering about things before they happen - what will Cubase 10 be like, what will Father Christmas bring me, how are T2 chips going to interact with Cubase and other DAWS - but I don't think it's helpful to make baseless assertions when really it's just excited speculation and chat. You said Cubase 10 would not be compatible with Mojave, and it's clear to me you have no idea.

The "speculation" about mojave was correct. The problem with the T2 is that it is a help processor that control the multimedia peripherals lika the audio path. If that causes interrupt latency or sync problems it will be hard to get the system to work good for low latency tasks like cubase.

I'm running Cubase 9.5 on Mojave on a 2018 Mac mini with the T2 chip and it seems to work fine. I'm not a pro, but I'm working on a 46 track mix using many of the stock instruments. I'm use 64 for buffer size. Soundcraft mixer as my audio interface. I'm not having any problems.

I'm downloading/installing Cubase 10 right now, I'll report back.

Like a fool, I assumed enough time had passed and they’d had it figured out, so I allowed the computer to install Mojave to make the annoying pop up window go away once and for all. Was kind of surprised that it was pretty much DOA with no hope of working at all. I probably should’ve read more experience reports first, although I still figured that worse case it’d be a short wait.

10 comes out, and in a hopeless bid of pathetic desperation, I went ahead and got it anyway. Same results.

I’ve usually been good about updating only when a smooth transition could be assured, but didn’t take my own advice this time. If you happen to be unsure, and you’re not feeling dangerous, WAIT.

It’s the most responsive version yet on my system, running 10.14.1. Every version had bad GUI lag but they actually fixed it, it’s absolutely amazing over here on the Mac Pro 2013.

Anyone with similar gear (2015 Macbook Pro, Cubase Pro 9.5.41, UR44, Akai MPK249) have luck with Mojave recently? Really wanna update, partially to get rid of that incessant reminder to upgrade, partially to fix the bugginess/crashiness I encounter once and a while. I'm aware Steinberg's latest message, posted a while ago, saying that it will be ready no later than November 2018. Anyone think it's high risk, or should I hold off till December?

Thanks!

Well, two developments for me.

1. Cubase 9.5.41 worked solidly on my T2 equipped MacBook Pro running the latest Mojave, but only if I removed my Yamaha USB driver - so I couldn't use my UR824s.

2. Bought the Cubase 10 update - works really well on Mojave, and now plays nicely with the Yamaha USB driver! I don't know what has changed, but for whatever reason, Cubase 10 + Mojave is better than Cubase 9.5.41 + Mojave. I'm happy.

Quick further update about CoreMIDI problem on 2018 MacBook Pro: seems to be connected to the Yamaha Steinberg USB driver. When the driver is uninstalled, Cubase loads normally and CoreMIDI is initiated and all is well. I reinstalled the driver and CoreMIDI wold not open.

I think I recall a similar issue with High Sierra in the past? Anyway, so far, for me, looks like this is the problem. I ca now run Cubase, but it won't work with my UR824s.
Hi,

This message appears if you have any Yamaha/Steinberg USB Audio Device, which doesn't have the MIDI 5-DIN connectors (so it doesn't have MIDI), like UR28m, UR824. I'm not sure, if it's the same with the FireWire driver, so if it's a true for MR816X and MR816CSX too.

But this issue is not macOS Mojave related. I can see the message with macOS 10.13 too. I guess it's more on the driver side (there was a driver update around the same time as macOS update). Could you try to install and older driver, please?

Martin, I'll try this tomorrow (although it's not an active issue for me because Cubase 10 doesn't throw up this problem)

When you say you are getting this same message on earlier versions of macOs, do you still get the message with Cubase 10?

Cubase 9.5 has been working pretty well for me under Mojave ever since the OS upgrade. There was one hiccup however. The first time I started Cubase a window popped up asking if I wanted to use the “microphone”. I said no because, in a studio well stocked with mics, why would I want to use the built-in mic on the Mac. Wrong choice. Apparently, “microphone” means audio input to Apple’s software engineers and answering “no” meant that I had no access to the audio inputs. Fixed it though by goin to (if memory serves!) System Preferences/Security and Privacy/Privacy/Microphone and ticking the box for Cubase. Otherwise, all went well.

I am presently gritting teeth in the familiar-to-most purgatory of older vers of Cubase 7.5 in an older Mac OS (10.9.5 Mavericks..?). I've purchased the Pro 9.5 update of Cubase and am deliberating next best step in the procedure.

I've yet to find and peruse a comprehensive compatibility chart that includes my particulars, but would love it if I saw something, ANYTHING encouraging to compel me to update the OS (it's definitely time!) ideally to current (Mojave) then install the Cubase update pro 9.5.

I'd rather hang there for a bit, for I've an imminent scoring project and I hear Cubase 10 has changed their semantic layout a bit, and I'd rather stay with the more familiar, as I've not ample time to learn the new Cub10 terrain.

I've also been told to expect some bit-related challenges with Waves plug-ins.

Another arcane Q for one of you cool experts out there: Is the update a patch that would transform the older 7.5 vers into ONE 9.5 vers. or will both vers be on the partion? I'm hoping the latter is the case, it would hedge my bets.

Thanks loads to whomever may know where to steer me with their knowledge.

This is true. And you also have to say yes to allowing 'Synsopsos app' which pops up on the first load. It's actually all on a page here

https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-u ... nsopos-app

I also fell foul of 'Allow microphone' question, but as noted above by 13engines it's fixable with System Preferences.

Cubase 9.5.41 seems pretty solid on Mohave for me, on a 2014 MBP

Hi and welcome,

Congratulation to your MacBook Pro. ;-)

Be aware, Cubase 8.5 is not officially compatible with the current macOS 10.14. The latest officially compatible macOS version was 10.12. So your installation and using it is "on your own risk". It might happen, something will not work. Then there is no official support.

Apart from this, if we expect it will work as expected, the installation is super-simple. Just download the Full Installer and double-click the file. Everything is moved properly to the places, where it has to be.
