Cubase VST 3.5 (for Windows)
OS: Windows 95
CPU: Intel Pentium 100MHz
GFX: 256 Colors 800x600
Rec CPU: Intel Pentium 166MHz
*** note that the requirements clearly indicate that this software is not to be run on a 486!


Cubase VST v3.5 is a true 32-bit native Windows 95 application, and will not run in 16-bit Windows (3.1 and earlier). The program supports multiple MIDI ports, and may use not only standard Windows MME-compatible soundcards, but also the new generation of multi-driver, multi-channel I/O cards, like the Korg 1212 and the forthcoming Lexicon and Event cards. Although Cubase VST will recognise multiple Windows MME soundcards, Steinberg do not recommend their use, because of the synchronisation difficulties that can occur between individual cards. Depending on the power of the PC, up to 32 audio tracks are available. Audio can be recorded directly into Cubase VST or imported in Windows WAV or Mac AIFF formats, and support is provided for MTC, MIDI Clock and SMPTE to synchronise external devices such as ADATs, stand-alone hard disk recorders, analogue tape decks and VTRs. Cubase VST offers an unlimited number of MIDI tracks to work with, and the MIDI timebase can be set to 96, 192 and 384ppqn (pulses per quarter note), which works out at 1/1536th of a whole note at maximum resolution.
