    Hello all,

    Well, it's been a long time since I did anything with Cubase (my version is
    vst5.1). Anyhow, I have a new PC...Windows 7, 64bit o/s..8 Gb ram etc...and
    a Roland UR80 interface...all up a very fast machine. I now want to get back
    into some home recording. As a teacher I can get Cubase 5 essentials for
    less than $100, and the software will be sufficient for what I want to do
    (some guitar tracks with a few midi tracks). So, my question is (despite
    some reading on the Steinberg site)...will Essentials 5 work on my win7 64
    bit machine?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Update: According to the Steinberg site (win 7 software compatibility
    section)...it looks like Cubase 5 essentials will run on win 7, (but it
    doesn't say 32bit or 64 bit ...maybe it doesn't matter?) but I'm still
    trying to find out if it will run on win 7 64bit...even as a 32 bit program?
    Also (and I'm somewhat annoyed!)..it seems after contacting Roland, my UR80
    won't work with win 7 64 bit either, as there are no drivers released (or
    will be). However, there is a windows vista driver available (which Roland
    tells me won't work)..however...win 7 has a compatibility mode or something
    (just read how to do that on a website)..but I'm reticent to start stuffing
    around with the new computer. I know that Cubase 5 studio works on win 7 and
    the disk contains both 32 and 64 bit installers..so that maybe an option for
    me...although I don't need all the bells and whistles. The many free
    sequences available are stating to look good to me!

    As long as Windows 7 64 bit drivers are available for your hardware, then
    either 32 bit or 64 bit versions of Cubase Essentials should work on your
    machine - if indeed a 64 bit version even exists, which I'm not sure about
    as I run Cubase 5.5 32 bit or 64 bit on my main Windows 7 64 bit DAW.

    Regards

    Nick
