I am currently running Cubase 4.5.2 on my windows 32 bit PC. (Windows XP service pack 3).
I now need to be able to have OMF compatability.
I understand C5 has OMF.
It might be the end of 2011 before I consider spending yet more money on a faster PC running 64 bit with Windows 7 etc.
So my question is: what is my best option to upgrade now with my current set up to gain the use of importing and exporting OMF files?
I have downloaded the free trial of Cubase 6, will I be able to try this on my PC XP set up?
I do not want to lose Cubase 4, so can I install and run them side by side?
p.s. I want to avoid paying for the Cubase 5 upgrade now, only to pay to upgrade to Cubase 6 in 6 months time.
Any help would be appreciated.
I stand corrected, C4.5.2 does import and export OMF files.
