I have just purchased Cubase 6. I do really like it but the reason I purchased it was that my old computer died and I thought if I was going to buy a new one I may as well upgrade fully to the new cubase and go full 64 bit.
The only issue I have is that I have 2 albums of songs that I haven’t quite finished that I had recorded in the earlier version of cubase SX3 (I don’t have the disks from that version as I bought the computer from a friend years ago who sold me his Delta 1010 soundcard along with the computer and it had programs already loaded and I just used it as he held a full licensed copy and I have no numbers to contact him anymore as I moved states years ago). When the computer died I hadn’t backed up the software programs only the songs (which I was doing as I went). When I loaded them on to cubase 6 I noticed that not all the old plugins are in cubase 6.
I have looked around on the the forum and someone mentioned I should be able to go to your ftp site and download them. I have gone to the ftp site but I am lost as to where to find them (as I don’t have an existing copy of SX3 on this computer anyway) and how to get them into Cubase (but I think I can work that part out I just need the plugins). Is anyone able to help? Can this be done? I am really hoping it can as some of the mod delay sounds would be almost impossible to recreate (or at least heartbreakingly madness making to do so). It looks as if it can be done as they are sitting there in the VST file just saying they are missing. If it can be done would you mind telling me how I can get all those old VST plugins? Can I download them from the Steinberg site?
It is things like the Mod delay, Reverb A and Reverb B (these have the different settings within them which I can’t tell if I select large or Ice or Medium or whichever other choice), Da Tube, et cetera. I have noticed some of the plugins are the same on the new cubase and these do look like they’ll just work.
Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated as some of these songs have had a lot of work put into them and I have lost a little bit of sleep fretting about them and worrying that I won’t be able to get these plugins working and all those hours of creating the right tone, or delay sound will be gone.
