Hello. I have been neglecting my music for years, but want to get started again soon. I need to update my equipment and software first; my MIDI sequences were all created using Cubase 2.5 for Mac OS Classic (System 7). What are my options for importing my files into a modern version of Cubase for Mac OS X or Windows 7 64-bit?
My old 68040 Mac no longer works, so I don’t have the option of going back and resaving my sequences as Standard MIDI files (except by getting Cubase 2.5 installed in a 68000 Mac emulator, I guess), and I want to avoid that route if possible anyway, since I want to preserve things like project notes, part names, and ghost copies.
I did come across Re: Cubase VST Song import in Cubase 4/5: a solution – will Cubase SE/SL/SX 3 import my Mac Cubase 2.5 files? Do I need to use the Mac version for this to work, or can I use the Windows version as well? (I do still have a PowerPC-based Mac mini, though it is not currently booting due hopefully just to hard drive issues.) Any gotchas with resource forks of the HFS-based Mac files?
Thank you very much in advance for helping me resurrect my music.
