The only pitfall I can think of, is setting up the computer the first time…
If youre on a Mac, Apple’s “Migration Assistant” should make things EXTREMELY easy. Just make sure to plug in the computer’s power and disable Sleep. The Assistant will hand all your files/settings/users/etc… to the new computer, if you choose to have it all copied. You can decide what gets transferred.
If youre on a PC, well, manually copying/installing is needed I believe.
Hope this helps!
You can just install Cubase 7, unless you would like the older versions on your machine. There is no “Upgrade Path” that you need to follow, in order to install. Only the version you’d like.
You purchased a Cubase 7 license, which will run ALL of the older versions, so your Cubase 6/6.5 license effectively turned into the version 7 license. This keeps things nice n clean for us.
When I recently bought a new laptop it was a lost weekend preparing and installing all my music software. There is no easy way of doing it, not that I know of anyway.
You need to install Cubase 6 from the discs and skip the 6.5 upgrade. Install only the 7 upgrade, as it has all that is required for the full install. Or you can download the full installer for cubase 7 from the downloads page and just run that.
Theres no reason, at all, to install Cubase 6, if you plan on using Cubase 7 only. The only time you want 6 installed, is if you want to use 6, or 6.5. In THAT case, you should install 6 first, then apply the 6.5 update. Ignore the post stating to install 6 and skip 6.5! Cant find any logic in that posting…
Also, Cubase will not install over previous versions either. If you have Cubase SX2 (any version) installed, it will still be in tact once Cubase 7 installs. You can even open them up side by side!
If the OP is using the Cubase 7 upgrade installation file he does indeed need to install from the dvd before hand as the dvd has all the included Vsti content, the upgrade installers do not included these to reduce their file size.
I admit it’s a bit of a nuisance to have to do it this way and downloading the complete installer from Steinberg is the simpler method, but at just over 5 GB some internet connections are not up to it.
win 7 by default parks 2 cores in other words puts them on standby until enough processing is done to require the other 2 cores ,which means your only using 2 cores at once .
This can be checked by by opening the cpu performance in the task manager ,if 1+3 are parked the the following steps to unpark are :
click windows start ,type in - regedit - then click the edit tab -
click on the find tab and enter :0cc5b647-c1df-4637-891a-dec35c318583 wait for the search to finish then you should have a set of values including maximum and minimum values and these need to be set to 0 by going to the edit tab and clicking on modify and entering the value 0 . you might have to do a search more than once if you have more than one power option .
Now reboot and you should see all fours working at once
