Am I the first to download? I was pretty quick!

This is my birthday(no kidding), and I love the new look and features!
The mixer is really something out of this world.
Just wow…impressive.
Download went blazingly fast, 3.5Mb/sek

I’ve got the update now but what means “I cant change sample rate under osx 10.8???” with any cards :nerd:

Can the new Halion Sonic SE content that comes with Cubase 7, be used in Halion 4.5 by any chance?

Please make this available as a trial ASAP!

I was so excited to login and try it out…and then…and then…d’oh.

Just buy it!!! Its awesome :smiley:

It looks like “Yes”.
The HS SE Hybrid content is available in the Instrument Set Filter both in stand alone, and as a plug-in.

Upgrade download was a breeze! Thank you for making the downloads available. It saves so many headaches for everyone to not require a boxed copy.

Loving the new C7 features! Just keeps getting better all the time.

Thanks for this info, I do appreciate it. I am currently downloading Cubase 7 and will try it out for myself shortly!

Cubase 7 is simply the best ever! You’re gonna love it!

I am not happy @ the moment with Cubase 7,
I make a new project with 3x VST NI Battery3, 2x VST Triebwerk, 1x VST Hypnotic Dance, 1x VST Omnisphere, 1x NI Massive,
After I saved the song it wouldn’t be able to reload, Cubase7 crashes…
Also the auto backups wouldn’t be able to load…

I hope that there comes a update soon !!

You could try re-instancing the VST instruments on the rack, or use Instrument Tracks for stereo only instruments.

Very disappointed with Cubase 7. Looks like Steinberg once again does not care about the pro ‘Non Songwriter’ users. What a shame. Was really looking forward to this release.

Please explain the problem, simple dismissals don’t help.

IF you buy the boxed version online can you still d/l the upgrade?

Of course, coming this December 19

Hi Guys!

I have a problem with the Cubase 7.0.1 install. When I try to install, (right-click and run as admin), C7 7.0.1 start to install but after a few seconds it ends up with -“setup have stopped working” ?? and then close down the window!

My theory is that windows7 is the problem, not Cubase7.

Things I have tried:

-Repair Cubase 7.0.0
-Shut down windows firewall and try to install C7 7.0.1
-Reset the computer to another date/ point.
-Repair Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
-Plug out every USB Plugs

Please if You have an idea of what i can do, Help me!!! I´m totaly lost!!

Sorry for my bad english, hope you understand anyway!!!

Here is some kind of report from windows, I think it called “Action Center”.

Make sure your video drivers are fully up to date and re-install from scratch.

Also ensure that eLc is installed and is up to date.

I wonder if the install update file is corrupt, have you tried re-downloading it to see if its that?
