I just upgraded my PC and have some questions about Cubase 7 with it.
My new system is Windows 7 64 bit, Core 3 processor and 16 gig of RAM
Will I have any problems running Cubase on this system? I had some slowness on my old PC (Pentium 4, 3 gig RAM) but I’m thinking this new PC should be more than sufficient. Thoughts?
How can I find out if any of my plugins will run on the new system? I’m assuming when I reinstall Cubase itself it will install the 64 bit version and all plugins that come with it will be 64 bit. But anything I downloaded from the Internet will be 32 bit and not compatible, correct? If so, how do I find out if those plugins have 64 bit versions. I’m mostly interested in Limiter6 which IMO is the best limiter I’ve used considering it’s free.
Will I have to download new drivers for my M-Audio Axiom air 49? The ones I downloaded for my old system work great and I’m hoping the 64 bit drivers will be just as good. I’m more concerned about the firmware for the keyboard. I updated it when I first installed it. Will I have to update it again or does that have nothing to do with the operating system I’m running it on?
I’m really looking forward to digging into this DAW with all my new EWQL stuff that I can finally run. It took me a little time but I’ve really gotten the hang of Cubase 7 and really love it. I guess 35 years of hardware modular recording, mixing and mastering wasn’t for nothing. Once I figured out where all the “knobs” were this became a piece of cake. And MIDI editing is amazing on this thing. I can do stuff I would have had to wrestle with for hours to do with my hardware studio.
Loving Cubase 7 more and more everyday.
