Cubase LE 3 compatibility with Vista
I recently bought a Tascam FW-1082 FireWire interface for my home recording studio. I won’t get into my issues with that just now, but I will mention this – it came bundled with a copy of Cubase LE and a copy of Gigastudio 3.
Gigastudio wouldn’t run. Period. It’s a Vista thing – it crashes the PC every time the app is opened. So much for that. But Cubase is mostly functional. I wanted to mention this because it’s a classic case of “almost compatible.” Really, most issues work fine. It used to crash when I attempted to close it (or was that Finale 03? Can’t remember – if it did, it doesn’t anymore.). But it’s a lesson – if you can, get v4 if you use Vista. If not, try to use v3. Although it’s not supported, it does work to a large extent.
Though, I should mention that version 4 is supposed to be significantly better, especially for synth lovers.
