Moving to Imac from win 10?

I’ve inherited my Dads Imac computer which is much newer than my old 8yr old HP win 10 laptop. My laptop has been super reliable and runs Cubase Elements 11 very well but is running out of storage on the SSD as well.
I haven’t picked up the Mac yet so I don’t know what the specs are for it…
What issues will I come up against in reloading my Cubase software onto mac???
Obviously the drivers will be different.
MyUR22C interface will need new software/drivers as well.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks .


Once you load the project(s), Cubase will ask you, where the audio files are. You will point to the Audio folder, to find them.

If you install all plug-ins from your Windows to the Mac, you shouldn’t have any problem.

You can also transfer your preferences folder from Windows to Mac, to get the same settings/appearance. Cubase Preferences folders are:
Mac: ~/Library/Preferences/Cubase X
Win: %appData% Steinberg/Cubase X_64

Be aware, you have to rename the Cubase AI LE Elements 12_64 to Cubase AI LE Elements 12 (remove the _64) on Mac.

In general, I wouldn’t expect any issue.

Thanks for that info Martin. :blush:
