I’ve been going around in circles even after contacting Steinberg support.
Bottom line is that even though I am a legitimate owner of SX3 (actually all the way back to SX1) and the new eLicense shows that I am, I get the error message on install of SX3 as shown as the first screenshot at the page I created for my support ticket at Steinberg on this and another issue (link included at end here).*** ***
My old faithful workhorse XP system’s mobo or CPU died back in May of this year and so it was time to build a new system. You can see my system specs at the page mentioned too.
*** *** This “another issue” being the reason why I want SX3 installed also: older basic FX such as Reverb A, Q, Double-Delay and such in projects created in SX3 aren’t “translated” into the new VST3 versions of the same type of native FX. Meaning that I have to go and re-calibrate all these effects from scratch - and mostly as guesstimates. Tedious and prone to never getting the exact settings again…
But if I could open a project in an independent instance of SX3 on one monitor, I could at least visually match the original SX3 settings in the new Cubase 6 version of it in the other monitor.
Q: Has anyone successfully installed both Cubase 5 and SX3 on their Windows 7 system – if so how did you do it?
Thanks for any solutions to this.
