I'm all for this statement Chris but I would appreciate that you make Yamaha aware of it, clearly they do not support the latest operating systems with their drivers. In fairness to those of us with Yamaha hardware such as the 01X by you not testing on previous operating systems and Yamaha not producing drivers for Windows 7 we are well and truly up the creek.Why are Windows XP, Windows Vista and Mac OS X 10.5 no longer supported?
To ensure the best user-experience we only support officially the latest operating systems available.
Options we stay with Cubase 5.5.2, the 01X , XP or Vista or we upgrade to Windows 7 and Cubase 6 purchase a new audio interface, mixing desk, controller and use the 01X as a door stop. Now that second option is an expensive one and evidence that Yamaha are doing exactly the opposite to Steinberg. I'm not getting an official response from either yourselves or Yamaha on this one so if you can throw some light or advice I would appreciate it.
Not a rant but a statement born out of frustration.
