There needs to be a good legacy version of Cubase before the huge 9 change. It took me so long to refigure my Cubase 4 projects to 8, 8.5. I know they probably transfer just fine to 9, just not ready to switch yet… workflow changes even if an improvement, take time to get used to, etc. just need a stable 8.5.
Some of us can’t upgrade to 9 yet, either because of current projects, or needing to use hardware that isn’t working well with 9 yet (Novation Automap), etc.
Cubase 8.5 64bit, has been very unstable for me on Windows 10 64bit, lots of crashes. And I feel like certain functions should exist in 8.5 that don’t.
