The Kid’s perfectly correct.
N5 is a completely new installation compared to N2, and N2 will remain installed & fully functional.
One thing I would heavily recommend though.
Before installing N5, make certain that all the N2 prefs have been moved to the desktop for the installation.
(You can put them back after firing up N5 for the first time).
If you don;t do this, N5 will try to import all your settings from the earlier version and this can cause trouble sometimes, so it is better to let N5 build a brand new set of prefs. Simply put the N2 ones back again after you get N5 set up & run for the first time.
If you are ever worried about a maintenance release or a dot update causing problems, try this before installing the update…
Go to C:Program Files/Steinberg and copy the Nuendo5 folder into the same location.
The folder will be called Copy of Nuendo5 or something - rename it to Nuendo5_0 or whatever build it is.
Now install the latest update - and the earlier build of Nuendo will still work from it’s executable, although it will utilize the same common files folder as the update…
You’ll love N5 over N2. For me, N2 was always a strange version - not as responsive as v1 was, resource heavy but very promising - N3 delivered on that promise.
N5 promises to be a superb tool…roll on 5.5 update, I think.
