Has anyone experienced this?

Hi All,
I have successfully converted many VST5 songs to CB Studio 5 through SL3. The problem is, it seems some of the older technology stays intact, most of which is the audio parts. For one, even though I’m in Studio 5, I can’t change the colors of the event parts. It also won’t allow me to have other event part technology like volume adjust or fades. Is this common or am I missing something?
If it’s the way it’s supposed to be, then I guess I’ll have to export all the audio tracks so they will import as updated technology.
Thanks for your thoughts!

Nobody else is converting from VST5?

Aloha S, and agreed!

In the past I have had to export audio track and MIDI tracks
and then import them back into a different app or
different version of Cubase.

Guess we are lucky any of this backward compatible stuff
works at all.

Good luck!

Thanks Curteye! Yes, a small price to pay to be able to use our older compositions!

Discovered an answer for Mac users to do this WITHOUT using an old PC or Mac machine (with 10.6.8 or earlier). You still have to do the export but at least it’s on your dedicated machine running the latest OSX 10.9.x See this for details:


Aloha b,
