Old projects

Who can help me out please with the following:
I have old Cubase 3.0 score files with compositions I made at the time. I would like to be able to re-open them somehow. Can anybody tell me how to do that?
Thanks a lot,
Joris VDH

What version of Cubase are you using now ?

Not that it matters as I think the oldest version you can import files from is Cubase VST5/32, and then it involves using SX3 first.

Hello Paul,

Thanks for your reply. I am using Cubase 6 Version at the moment. What do you mean with ‘using SX3’ first?


Because you can’t import old Cubase5/32 files into a current version of Cubase, you have to first import those files into SX3, then you would use a current version of Cubase to import those SX3 files into your current Cubase.

Convoluted but that’s the way it is :unamused:

Maybe you can import your old Cubase 3.0 files into VST5/32 then import those into SX3 ?

You can still get older versions of Cubase, including VST3-5 if you go to :


I don’t know why Steinberg just doesn’t include an ‘importer’ of sorts into all versions of Cubase. I’d think that would be a valuable feature. But at least they do provide the means to get songs imported.
