I don’t usually post because I don’t want to taken for one of them guys thats so negative. But I am a bit confused, and I want to apoligize if I get a little wordy with this post. I have been a cubase user for a long time. In fact I just looked at my old boxes and the oldest one is cubsae sx which I know is an upgrade from an earlier version of cubase. I just can’t remember what. I like it it. It suits my humble needs for recording. I have always upgraded to whatever the full version is that comes out and am currently running Cubase 5. To be clear about what I have to say I also run a Yamaha O1x which I have been very happy with for a long time. Then there is Wavelab 7 which I just upgraded to even though I am forced to use Windows XP (wavelab 7 is not officially supported for windows XP.) But because the Yamaha O1X does not have drivers for Windows 7 I am stuck in XP.
Now for the confusing part. Which is Cubase 6 which I have not upgraded to because of the following. Cubase 6 is also not officially supported for Windows XP. But it says in the manual named “Remote Control Devices” that the Yamaha O1X is supported by Cubase 6. How can that be?
Yamaha O1X= No drivers for Windows 7
Cubase 6= Support only for Windows 7
Cubase 6= Yamaha O1X stated as device approved for use
Am I starting to make sense here? Unless I am seeing it wrong, there is an (hope I spell it right) OXYMORON going on. If this is true, then somebody with Cubase/Yamaha is lying thru their teeth for marketing purposes. Isn’t that called false advertising? One way or the other it don’t make sense to me. Personaly I would love to see drivers for Yamaha O1X for Windows 7.
I don’t want an MRX16. I want something with faders, & is interactive such as the the Yamaha O1x is with earlier versions of Cubase. I also don’t want to hear that Steinberg, & Yamaha are two different companys. They are both owned by Yamaha. I wish I could get a Yamaha reps response to this post. I won’t though because I don’t speak japanese. We’ll thats all for my rant. I don’t know what to do. I love what I am seeing in Cubase 6. Just don’t know how to get there from Cubase 5 with the contradicting statements. Thanks if you have read this post all the way to the end. Fitterbkw
