I know there is an announcement about it and there is a “list” with compatible applications.
However: this list is empty up to this date…I am a Cubase 6 user and made the transition to Mac a few weeks ago. I am entitled to a free upgrade to Lion which I should claim before 30 days after…??? Apple is unclear about when: after the release of Lion? after the purchase of the computer…?
Anyway: Lion is a big update that A LOT of people will like to do IMMEDIATELY (me included). For starters only available through the APP store. You can see it coming: a lot of impulsive upgrades…
So I think Cubase should be ready BEFORE Lion is released…And so I am getting a bit worried …
I totally get your point but most of us will not ‘jump’ to Lion right away.
This is because we (I) have learned this lesson the hard way.
Apple sometimes makes major product shifts and
musicians (because we use so many 3rd party
products) are typically last to benefit.
This is because we have to wait for other stuff/products to ‘catch up’.
I think it will be the same situation with Lion.
Also when it comes to Steinberg/Yamaha,
how will they take advantage/use these new Lion features? [C7 anybody?]
Which brings up the question:
For Cubase to remain truly ‘cross platform’ will certain features (Mac or Win)
not be used in Cubase because the other platform does not support them?
I would bet that Cubase 6.0.2 would work fine in Lion, but I don’t know if I want to be a guinea pig… Anybody out there planning on doing that on a non-mission critical machine? It’d be nice to have some of the advantages of the upgrade now. (instead of in two weeks, lol. I sound addicted to upgrades. Also I got a free copy of OS 10.7 due to having bought my new Macbook Pro after June 6)
Usually i wouldn’t mind trying but i’m just in the middle of working on some stuff that are missing critical and i can’t risk that with an upgrade I’d love to hear about compatibility for 6.0.2 and lion if any is available (:
From what iv’e read, Lion does NOT run or allow the installatiion of Rosetta…And I remember Cubase needing to have this installed when I installed Cubase. I think there is some old code inside a few older VSTI’s that require Rosetta. And Cubase will NOT install without installing these VSTI’s.
Just guessing this would be the biggest culprit…I just think it would be wise to wait for the 6.0.3 update of Cubase…
