I’ve used Cubase since its beginning, and I’ve got lots of old client files. I haven’t seen a way to import/open old Cubase file since Cubase 3. In 3 there was an entry in file dropdown that allowed one to “import old cubase projects.” I’ve not found a thing like that since then. Many of these files were created in the PC world I started in - I’m been a Mac user for some time now. Currently, to open old files I have to open them in Cubase 3, rename and save them. Then open them in Cubase 5.
Even though I’m amazed that I can revive and get to these files at all, I know there must be a better way. I’ve tried many times to fined this topic in the Operations Manual, but not found the language in the search windows in either Cubase 4 or 5 to find a way to make these imports directly into the newer versions…I’m missing something, right?
