Yesterday I just testing old Cubase SX which is the same aged as my laptop and it runs only Windows XP - I cannot install Cubase 9.5.
Here is result. A short example:
Used LM-7, Monologue, a1, Embracer.
Mastered with Waves 5 - LinMB + L2.
P.S. I ask for support to get at least Cubase 5.5 which is last available to run under Windows XP.
