Steinberg might have warned in advance that MacOs will no longer work with Cubase 11.0.40. This is not Upgrade 11.5 or 12 version.

thank you!

System pre Mojave are not officially supported since a lot. This is stated in the sys requirements and was also stated when the 11.0.0 first came out last November.

yes, but until today C11 worked without problems on 10.13 MacOs, but today … Boom, Crash!



As unsupported system, Steinberg doesn’t test it. Therefore they don’t know (and cannot inform) it doesn’t work anymore.

Cubase 11 is not supported on macOS 10.13 since the very beginning, i.e. Cubase 11.0.0.

Thanks Martin,

I’ll stick to 11.0.30 for now.


After update cubase won’t launch

As mentioned above, you are running unsupported macOS 10.13. Please update to supported macOS 10.14.

Sorry, new to mac, how do I do that? The update center doesn’t give me any updates


Open App Store application and search for the “macOS Big Sur”, what is the latest macOS version, please.

Thank you very much, I’m on it

For Macs up to Mac Pro 2012,5, this also necessitates buying a new computer, to replace one that is already working just fine. Since 11.0.30 works on macOS 10.13, it is obvious that there is no particular reason why Cubase 11.0.40 shouldn’t too.

We shouldn’t have to keep buying a new computer just to run an incremental update of Cubase. It comes across as though Steinberg have Apple stocks they’re seeking to inflate the value of.

Not all musicians who use Music IT are wealthy enough to keep replacing gear that is already fit for purpose.
