Hi all, Happy New Year,
I have a bunch of old projects that I recorded in both Cubasis VST 4.0, as well as Cubase LE (I think version 1), all in Windows XP.
I always had it in the back of my mind that I’d go into all of them one day, and export them to Wav mixdowns, just so I can have them (Can’t exactly bring up a Cubase file for my friends to listen to). But, as fate would have it, I’ve been too busy to ever really sit down with them, and do some light mixing, and exporting - I recorded over 100 songs/versions of songs, so it would be more than just a day or two, and that’s why I always wound up putting it off.
Today, I’ve tried installing my old discs of Cubasis VST 4.0, and Cubase LE, assuming (correctly) that they would not work on Win8.1, obviously to no avail.
I installed a VM with XP, and tried installing them there, same deal.
I tried installing a trial of Cubase 7 64, to see if it would be backwards compatible with any of these filetypes, and that didn’t work. In fact, it wouldn’t even open.
It just tells me:
"An error has been signaled by the Protected Object Server
File SYNSOACC.DLL could not be located in the Windows system folders."
My question is how do I open these? I don’t even see Cubasis VST mentioned ANYWHERE on the Steinberg site. Everything routes to the repurposed naming of the iOS app, which doesn’t help me much.
Is there some application in particular that I can download/use/buy to open these just so I can export them? Am I out of luck with all these .cpr/.all/.arr files now? Can I somehow convert them to a more modern filetype, and then open them, and if so, which application would I use to open the converted files in Win8.1?
