« 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?
