Looking for cubase dongle

Postby rockdemon » Sat Nov 16, 2019 6:01 pm

Hi Everyone,

I've recently got myself an ST with gotek and 4Mb with the aim of getting back into sequencing on atari cubase and my roland FA08, along with my Amiga 1200 for running samples by MIDI sync.

The one piece of the puzzle i'm missing is a Cubase dongle (I know there are cracks but in my experience they give random crashes.)

Does anybody have anything available, preferably in the UK/EU?

Many thanks in advance :)

Rich

Your best source will be ebay in the EU. Cubase dongles pop up every now and then.

Thanks - I'm watching :) I did get a reply from Rupert at stfreakz - He has a copy, but it's a lot more than i intended spending. I'm busy chewing on that at the moment :)

On the ECG compact disk number 6 is our version of Cubase 3.01.
It's a beta-crack which needs some testing, maybe you want to try?

I do not believe in the cracked Cubase versions. The ones out there are not reliable.

It's a waste of time trying to produce music with a cracked Cubase. Sooner or later it will crash during production.

Today what it is to be a detractor of the solidity of Cubase Atari ?, well, the most appropriate for "Atari-forum".
I do not agree, I am using Cubase since it was launched and I am still doing it until today, and I can say that Cubase is a computer software and it is not the second coming of Jesus Christ on earth, therefore there is a small risk that is not infallible, an insignificant risk if we compare it with the other platforms of its time and even today (do current users of Cubase for Mac and PC not save their work frequently as a preventive measure?
Cubase was born bright but raw in his v1, then came v2.01 that marked the highest bar of stability and reliability at that time and even today, in fact the MCA boys cracked that version and has gone around the world with Many musicians. My Atari and Cubase v2.01 have performed live next to my celebrations orchestra, on stage, and it has payed me half the amount of my house; I will remember how many times that software has failed in my work ... wait I am counting ... ah, now, I remember now !: None.
How many times has Cubase failed while I was sequencing a song? Perhaps less than 30 times in 30 years, and that exploited to the limit the few Kby of RAM that were available during that work, recording in real time, editing scores, modifying during playback, controlling 10 MIDI instruments ...
v3.00 arrived and came with its corresponding bugs of the newborn, they were polished with v3.01, v3.02 ... and finally v3.1 almost as perfect as v2.01.
Finally Cubase Score appeared whose version 2.0r7 is the fastest, most stable and versatile of all that exist.
Let's see if between higher races (those who do not admit the miscellaneous Atari) and people who throw stones at their own roof we will defame what is undoubtedly the most solid pillar of the history of Atari 16/32 bits and its Cubase MIDI symbiosis , that must be the new trend of "Atari news" in the forum.

Does anyone want Cubase v3 or Score ?, I have it: € 225 with shipping costs included (in the EU, without customs).
If you find something better: buy it.

The trick to finding an affordable Cubase dongle is knowing where to look. For example asking in the music section of an Atari forum will put you in contact with lots of people who have Cubase dongles but who also tend to value them more than say some gamer who acquired an unwanted dongle with an Atari ST purchased to play games on.

From time to time I will see an Atari ST being sold with a Cubase dongle for about the same price that some resellers are asking for just the dongle! I am not even talking about nice boxed copies of Cubase here, I am talking about loose thrashed dongles that someone has taken a marker to.

Hello Miguel;
I will give you some information so that you also understand other people who are not vocational "resellers."
Some, like me, are buying specific musical hardware for Atari and that does not usually appear among vendors who are not musicians; therefore on many occasions when I have needed to buy a certain complement, the previous owner has refused to sell it individually and I have had to invest more money for the whole set (paying for things that I already have repeated, as is the example of Cubase) . I have paid the price for it, I have worried about providing functional diskettes (many of the old ones are not well preserved), I have had that investment immobile for an undetermined time, the shipping costs to another country for a Cubase package cost a minimum From € 36 for example from Spain to the UK, everything is delivered clean and with guaranteed operation.
When a fellow musician who is going to buy my Cubase and asks me for a manual for example in French, Spanish, etc .; I clean a PDF file page by page, I take it to a photocopy store to print it (if I do it on my printer I think it is more expensive), I buy a ring binder, I configure some stickers imitating the original logo ... I spend others € 35 or € 40 to create that manual. Here we do not talk about something taken from a dark and humid attic, this is something that does not abound in the market and is also obtained with the comfort of arriving and operating without problems, with all the necessary manuals and information, with a time that I invest ( and I don't charge) for other people to use this tool.
Do you think I earn money with this? No, I simply recover what I have spent.
I will always keep two MIDI dongles and two Audio dongles for my personal use; I will sell everything else and someone else can use it. I do not dedicate myself to resell anything, I recover what I have spent. I say this because I am pleased, it is not necessary to give explanations if I were a seller (that there are many) because it is a logical and respectable activity, but I am not a reseller.
Regards.
