The only way I am able to open songs from Cubase VST 5 is to import to Nuendo 3.0 first, but it will only work if you do not update Nuendo 3. If you update Nuendo 3, all VST 5 files will be completely spaced apart your project Window. Ask me how I know.
I have converted many projects from Cubase VST 5 to Nuendo 10, but this is the only wayI know how, after many hours and searching all over the net.
A ha!! I thought as much. Not really concerned with the plugins, I have MUCH better ones now, so I’d rather use those anyway.
My song icon isn’t recognised at all with any version of Nuendo I own (5.5 - 10) I have rather a lot of old files, it would be really great to have a basic translator app. Something I could open it with and then export as a Nuendo project
I still have my old computer that I used to record on, but my licence file on my dongle has been overwritten with subsequent Nuendos and I can’t get it running again
I’m not sure if this is relevant, but I have some .cpr projects from 2003 which open fine in N10 (although obviously the plugins don’t load). I’m not sure which version of Cubase/Nuendo I was using at the time, but it would have been the version that was current then.
If I’m not mistaken, cubase vst 5 projects use extensions .all or. arr that you can only open with Nuendo 3 or earlier and Cubase SX or earlier You may use an old computer with Windows XP or an old Mac… Or a virtual machine. Nuendo 10 license should open Nuendo 3.
Ok, if they are Cubase VST projects, you have to install Nuendo 3, and do not update to 3.2 or whatever last release was.
Then import the Cubase VST .all, save as .npr, and then into Nuendo 10.
If you upgrade the Nuendo 3.0 version, all your MIDI will be imported into the wrong location, with the wrong length.
Ask me how I know.
Also, it has to be Nuendo 3, because it is the last version of Nuendo that imports Cubase VST 5 files.
EDIT: as for the installation of older versions, you have to uninstall the latest versions,
and start from the beginning with the old Syncrosoft Licencer, and then as you progress
to the later versions install the e Licencer. Then your older versions will still work.
If you don’t uninstall the new e Licencer, and install the old syncrosoft Licencer, you will
not be able to install Nuendo 3 because eLicencer did not exist then.
