I got Cubase 7.5 installed and it seems to be working fairly well. Sure takes a long time to load the Midi part of the program. - Is that the same for you, around 30 seconds just for that section of the program to load?
My main question after reading about some issues in the different versions of Cubase is, what version are you running? I was going to load 7.5.2 but read the mixer has some issues. Thus I guess a better question to ask you is what version of Cubase would you rather be running?
Thanks for your help as I contemplate upgrading further.
