Running Cubase 6 on Mac OS Sierra

Hello,

I’ve been working with Cubase 6 since it got out.
Just transferred to Mac Sierra 10.12.3.

When I try to install Cubase 6 on the Mac I get an error:
‘You need at least Mac OS X 10.5.0 to install this software’.

Since my OS is higher than 10.5 (10.12) I do not understand how to make it work, and cannot install cubase.

Any help much appreciated…

Cubase 8.5 and higher are the Mac OS sierra compatible versions.

Is there a way to run Version 6 on the Sierra? (do not want to pay 300 euros just because it is not supported)

Tried the installer tool with Cubase 5. It does not recognise the installer DVD… :frowning:

The installer tool doesn’t support Cubase 5, and you really should consider upgrading. Cubase has improved massively since Cubase 5, it’s a much faster and more powerful DAW now.

there is really nothing in it for me that would make the $300 worthwhile.
not to speak of backwards incompatibility.

I strongly doubt that. The workflow for basically everything is much faster now. It almost feels like a different DAW.

The license would also allow you to run previous versions, which are 100% compatible with Cubase 5.

Even if you managed to run Cubase 5 on Sierra it would be buggy as hell anyway because of the changes Apple made to the OS.
