Re: using Windows Vista and Cubase

I am about to buy a laptop that has windows vista but I understand that Cubase SE3 wont run on that operating system. Can I upgrade to Cubase 4 (which I am told does run on vista) and if so how much does it cost?


Steinberg only sells the latest version of Cubase. That means you’ll have to get an upgrade to some version of Cubase 6 instead. Unless you can find a store that still carries the Cubase 4 update, or you might get it second hand somewhere.

Unsold or unused upgrades do turn up from time to time on the net, ebay for instance, v3 can be upgraded to version 4 or 5 (an upgrade from v4 to v5 works on v3) but an upgrade to v6 is no longer offered from steinberg
