original cubase install cds (for macintosh) from 1996/1997
« on: March 03, 2018, 08:45:15 AM »
does anyone have original disc image of v3.x of cubase for mac?
http://www.oldschooldaw.com/forums/index.php?topic=188.0

the cds are from 1996 + 1997, either one of these;
05/01/1996 Cubase VST Macintosh 3.0 (First VST version)
8/1/1997 Cubase VST v3.5 (Mac)

featuring installers for Cubase, Cubase Score, Cubase Audio XT
i think this is the best version for 68030 processor on system 7?

No VST at all for 68K macs. Audio support (Cubase Audio) needs a Nubus audio card ... Digidesign, etc... AFAIK.
In The 68k era I had an 840AV and worked with Logic Audio because it had support for the audio in the AV.

I have a boxed version 3.5. (actually says 3.52 on the disk) and a boxed Version 4 r2.

Each box comes with a serial number and a licence/authorisation floppy disk.
I seem to remember the floppy disk authorisation process was a massive pain and you had to put a file back on to this disk when 'de-authorising' (moving computers). I'm not sure my floppy disks are valid...

Should I upload ISO's of both here?

I have boxed version 2.0 (black and white). This pre-CD  era uses only floppy disk authorization schemes.

You have many many Cubase licenses?

If update that 4.0 version to version 4.1r2...does audio-editor still works (mine shows only half of audio)? Or is it only my problem (recording with 24bit/96khz)?

And interesting question to me is that version 3.52 doesn't support 24bit-audio, but I have strange hint that updating to 3.65 or 3.7 should give support for that and also support for Mac OS 9. Is that true?
I bought my first new Mac when OS X 10.1 released. And I bought that Mac because it had Mac OS 9 too. And I bought my first 68k Mac when Apple stopped PPC Macs.

version 3.52 asks for "master disk" to be inserted.. it's asking for a floppy -- and when it doesnt get the floppy it removes all the installed files.. sigh
it does have an installable demo of 3.52 that installs fine without the floppy
it also seems to contain the Cubase Audio XT installer just like the image from above indicates except for v3.52 rather than 3.0.2

Yeah, both versions (3.52 & 4.0) came with a serial number and a licence/authorisation floppy disk.
 
The floppies that I received with these packages were missing authorisation files. With the floppy disk authorisation process you had to put a file back on to this disk when 'de-authorising' (moving computers). I guess this means the previous owners didn't bother to put the file back.

probably a good reason why noone was uploading this old 3.x version
8/1/1997 was the date for 3.5 version, I guess it was Summer 1997, the world still used floppy disks..

i guess Cubase 4 (Macintosh) was the first version without the auth floppy requirement
10/1/1998 was the release date for 4.0 version..


thats 14 months inbetween
and 2 months after the introduction of the iMac by Steve jobs. (first pc/mac to DROP the FLOP? https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1998-may-11-fi-48540-story.html)

Not the first, although it was a significant move in 1998.

Portables like the HP OmniBook and PowerBook 100 had made the floppy drive an external dongle for years.

I think the really significant aspect of the iMac was no floppy drive in a desktop computer. HP did that in 1983 with the Touchscreen Model 150, where all mass storage, floppy or hard drive, was in separately purchased HP-IB attached boxes. You could boot a 150 from a hard drive box without a floppy drive, although I suspect that very few were used that way. It's also arguable if you can call the 150 a "PC", since it was only MS-DOS compatible, not register-level compatible with the IBM PC, as the industry later settled on.

By 1998, floppies were mostly dead as a software distribution format, helped by the increased affordability of CD-R. USB was also mature enough to provide external floppy capability for those who required it. The first iMac was kind of crippled, though, as USB 1.1 "Full Speed" was not exactly what you would want for external hard drives. It was fast enough for writing CD-Rs using the 4-6X speeds common at the time.

In 1998, I was still using floppies to transfer files to/from the Computer Lab machines at college, because it was simple and compatible. USB thumb drives weren't available until 2000!

This info if for people that do NOT have a floppy drive...

The problem with Cubase v4 that was moved to CD is that is still requires a "Challenge" "response" code, if you don't have a Floppy, then go for V4.1r2, no floppy or challenge response code needed
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,3218.0.html

Howvever, I always recommend CuBase VST 5/32 that we have here:
http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,839.0.html

The cool thing about this toast image is that is will burn a "perfect" copy of the original version 5 CD; it re-creates the extra blocks at the end of CD just like the original, many other images will fail the authorization check, this one will pass. So, this version is kinda like the holy grail, pinacle, zenith, etc version of Cubase under OS9.  I know we have discussed this to death, but CuBase VST 5/32 has very, very few bugs and I personally ran it for many over 10 hours sessions without a single crash.  Also, features like true tape, solid MIDI timing, low latency ASIO, and reliable automation make it my favorite DAW ever for OS 9.

One quick note from the download page...
Quote
In order to install, you must first burn the toast image to an actual CD and leave it in your Optical Drive and let it mount on the desktop.  Do NOT run the CD (it is Version 5.0), Use the updated Version 51r1 Installer and launch it while keeping the burnt CD mounted (this will authorize the updated version and install it). DO NOT stop the install, it will take a long time for the authorization to finalize. Use the serial number above when installing.

So, by using the 5.1r1 install on a fresh build and having the 5.0 cd mounted, you can quickly go to the best version, all authorized, in one easy step :)
