I also use Cubase 5. I actually bought 4 years ago (2007 I think,) and decided to switch to a copy last year so I could use it on my laptop without needing the dongle. Been thinking about upgrading for a while now. It's still about £200 or so though for me to do so from the version I have. I do like the look of 8. In fact it's starting to feel crazy how long ago it was that I bought it. I think my main worry of upgrading though has been the 64bit issue andlu comptibility with 32bit plugins. I'm sure I've heard it doesn't run 32 bit ones without using something called J-bridge. I don't know enough about it though yet. Can anyone shed any sort of light on this?

I have to say, with Cubase a fav technique I take advantage of on a regular basis is the use of ctrl and alt to shift the audio within a clip. Highly useful for quick edits. Pretty sure this is missing from most other daw's I've come across and I now feel lost without this feature.

32 bit plugins run fine in my 64bit copy of Pro 8 o:

Atleast from what I remember, everything I use is 64 bit now!

Well sort of, it mentions Vista only, unless this was an old article, but it would have had to have been pretty old not to mention Window 7, also what's a 64 bit "preview" version of a DAW?

Reading this article though pretty much re-iterated what my worries were about 32bit plugins not working properly. So you have working 32 bit plugins then MA?

As far as I'm aware cubase 7 and above have a bridge built in.
I've used 32-bit Vocodex on cubase 7 before.

Oh really, so this would solve the issue then? I think I'm going to get my version upgraded then this year if I can. It's been long enough and has looked really good since 7 came out visually too. Love the darker colour scheme of it.

Yeah cheers for that, I'll keep an eye out on this one. I'm just glad they have finally incorporated something to get around this issue. It's the only thing that was stopping me from upgrading sooner.
