So I’m aware that Cubase 7.5 isn’t officially supported for 10.6.8, but has anyone tried? If so, does it run okay?
I’m concerned about upgrading to Mavericks for a few reasons, one of them being that the Adobe CS5.5 Production Suite might not be compatible anymore, rendering a something-hundred dollar software set useless…
Don’t know about SL, but it runs just fine on Lion. I might go ML soon but have no desire for Mavericks right now myself.
Yeah, just got a hold of the box and it says the minimum requirement is 10.7 (Lion). So I’m not so certain.
In other news, I got this as an upgrade to Cubase 5. So if I attempted to install 7.5, and it did install, but crashed or something because it’s on an earlier OS, could I still launch Cubase 5? Or would upgrading prevent me from opening up the C5 application/would void my license to use C5?
I, and a number of other Mac users I know, run C7.5 on 10.6.8 with no problems except for the bug that makes the main menu bar randomly disappear. This is caused by the Hub. Solved by trashing: hubservice.bundle
hubservice.bundle can be safely sailed into the trash. For safety/restoration, zip the component first, then trash the original.
Leave “Use Steinberg Hub” checked in Prefs/General. Random crashing has been attributed to the Hub for some users. If crashing occurs and hubservice.bundle is prominently displayed in your crashlogs, uncheck this item.
Pathway to the file:
Rightclick/Cubase 7.5 > Contents > Components > hubservice.bundle
Removing this component provides 6 advantages:
• Stops the crashing (for those who have this problem).
• Restores the earlier compact C6-type Project Assistant.
• No waiting around for the Steinberg web connection to complete.
• Speeds your launch time. On my machine, this cut a full 20 seconds out of the launch period.
• Removes “Steinberg Hub” from the main menu (nothing that can’t be found on Steinberg’s site or your Operations Manual).
• And the aforementioned plus for Mac users still running 10.6.8: no disappearing main menu bar.
