No installation problems but that's the minimum you can ask for. However it requires a USB key so you'll have one USB port less on your computer. Given this condition why isn't it possible to load the software directly from the USB key? When you switch between you desktop and laptop you have to always think of the USB key.
Installation is no problem, no key to Steinberg Cubase Se 1.
Configuration not easy.
Manual: 4 large folders of PDF Cubase 1.
Sound Card Edirol UA-20.
The software works very well .. Ect
Use the software for 4 years.
On the other tried as Cubase SX demo.
Travaillier midi notes & audio.
Qualities & Price: 160 Euro.
I do again my choice for Cubase Element 6 or 6.5
Sequel & 3 with USB Key Steinberg ...
It seems to me that Cubase SE is the version of Cubase integrated into the "pack" STUDIO CASE I just bought 15 days ago.
Installation is very easy. In addition to the software itself, you must install the key anti-piracy USD
The manual (in French) does that make the first move and then you print more items from the CD in Acrobat Reader (for up-dates should follow the manual on the site Steinberg)
The configuration of the peripheral elements is as simple virtual instruments (VST)
On my computer PIV 3.06 GHz, 512 RAM and a sound card EDIROL UA-1000, I have obviously no compatibility issues all of which are new.
I have not pushed the config into a corner (as long as I'll never!) But I did test by multiplying the audio tracks with effects of soft, midi and VST and I can not receive any Latency.
It takes a few hours to discover little by little the articulation of the menu "Devices" and find a way of working staff.
Balance I am like a child with my Nuveau "home studio" and I can not take off.
Compared to my Fostex DMT-8 multitrack and Cubasis noon, having a universe entirely grapique is a comfort that allows to consider the composition in a different light, can finally inherits cut and paste, use the track tempo, never fiddle passages on ternary quantizer binary to program fades in and fades out without having to play before the backup.
Only "fault" of the new config, I can only throw my DAT, I Miniverb my multitrack, all of which are already integrated into the beast ...!
Installation is no problem (Obviously I should say?), No problem of incompatibility with my Audiophile USB nor I had when purchasing this software, nor with my Yamaha 01-X acquired recently ...
The setup is with the old diffrent of Steinberg software on which I had worked previously (Cubase or Cubase Vst 32) but following the manual and with a little common sense (the practice of what!) this is done without problem.
The manual is adequate for beginners, if the handling of the software is enough "empty" to which adj worked on such products.
I work with a laptop Packard Bell quip in Athlon XP-M 2400 + with 512 MB Ram, with an additional external hard drive USB 2 (Iomga 80GB) to pack all audio, software located on the internal hard drive (a 30GB).
The software works very well in this configuration, I have no crashes dplorer.
I've never had a computer as stable ...
I work with this app for the past 2 months and I can not say as well ... the main window is really good think, with everything you need on hand, so I changed Cubasis (version still quite old) or Cubase Vst 32.
The report is untouchable qualitprix (with or without Vsti).
The silent version bought Vsti book with "lights" that I find effective trs.
I would do this choice without worry, but I'll be Bond tt or later to spend the SL version to take full advantage of the remote control key functions via my 01-X.
Trs trs of good software ...
