Hi, have you been able to fix the problem? The same is happening to me when using Cubase 4 and 5. But when I use the last cubasis it works ok after pausing then continues to play sound. I am sure Cubase 5 used to work when i first installed it (MacOS9.2.2) Thanks

can anyone at all please respond about this app? has anyone actually got this app to work ? ableton v1 + reason v1 both work great.. i would love to get this working as well.. or version 4 vst24.. or even version 3.x something.. cant anyone get on board and help me get a working cubase with rewire? the only one that actually works properly is cubasis 2.0 posted by tata...... nuendo 1.5 seems to work but then i lose mouse or keyboard connectivity.......

im having a strange problem with this app.. the first time i play asong it all works fine but once ive stopped playback, the sound stops.. and i have to quit and reopen the app again to get it to work again, but then the sound stops again after i press stop on the transport bar after auditioning a song.. i thought iit must be asio driver related.. so i tried to test it with the built in speakers to see if the audio cuts out after playing once.. and it does.... so its not my interface's driver.... Sad kind of dissapointed... its here, in front of me, working, but not really:( i cant keep closing + reopening the app.. theres got to be a solution...

Serial is in the archive

Ehma, the good news is that your download link is functional. The bad news is that the Cubase installer from that download asks for a serial number in the midst of installing, and if you don't provide one, the installer quits on the spot, leaving nothing actually installed. Presumably one can obtain usable serial numbers from the usual suspects, but...

The download link is borken -- it yields a "specified key does not exist" error. This error has already cropped up, and been fixed, in various other download links, so I expect that getting this one fixed is just a matter of bringing it to someone's attention...
