Hi again MCL,
I've just had Barrie on the phone today with a few more tips, as he's
the forum Atari Cubase expert!
He says that is you're getting an early STFM the TOS version won't read PC
formatted disks. So if you haven't already got one, an STE with version TOS 1.06 at least
will do the job.
Another way around that I use is an Atari prog called DFormat, which
can write DOS and AFE bootfiles for reading by PCs or Macs.
Barrie also advises that
if you've used (ahem) dodgy copies of Cubase in the past
They can give problems when being read by official copies!
Also keep in mind that the soundcard on your PC is certainly optimised for GM, so if you
used pre or non GM modules in the past (I still do!!
) then all
the program changes will be different.
Get back to me if you woulld like the
link to Dformat -I forget where I got it from but it's probably from the Atari Launchpad
Ps. Thanks to Barrie as always..
Lots of Ataris which keep on going, 12 Kurzweil 1000 modules, a bunch of hardware synths. Still recording to tape -the old ways are best.....
