I’ve been using Cubase SL3 on Windows XP and have now changed computer to use Windows 7. I had to lose my old sound card (M-Audio Quattro) because there are no Win7 drivers from something that old. I’ve replaced it with a Focusrite Saffire 6 USB.
I can’t get my Cubase SL3 (from 2004) to install on the new PC: it tells me that there is some other process going on that prevents installation, though I have no other applications in use. Is it possible for a non-teckie to get this version of Cubase working, or do I have to fork out for a more modern version? If the latter, what is the most economical way of upgrading to something which (a) will run on this set-up, (b) will recognise and play my old SL3 files, and © has recording/editing facilities at least as good as the SL3?
