Установка cubase на linux

Петиция: Steinberg Cubase для GNU/Linux

Занимаюсь написанием музыки на PC, из-за чего приходится постоянно держать установленной альтернативную ОС, поскольку всё проаудио ПО, которое не под Mac, есть только под Windows. Побродив по тематическим форумам, я убедился, что значительное число пользователей хотело бы видеть версии звукового софта под Linux, особенно на фоне распространения Ubuntu. В итоге я решил разместить петицию с просьбой выпустить Cubase в каком-либо варианте под GNU/Linux. Целью является не столько получить Linux-версию конкретно Cubase (хотя лично для меня это важно, поскольку я использую именно его), сколько обратить внимание производителей профессионального звукового ПО на Linux.
Я уже видел на ЛОРе обсуждение петиций перед публикованием, мне показалось это довольно полезным, и я решил выложить свою для обсуждения. После обсуждения собираюсь разместить её на petitiononline.com.

Далее английский текст петиции (перевод мой, русский изначальный вариант приводить не стал для экономии места). Буду рад комментариям и предложениям.

Steinberg Cubase for GNU/Linux
To Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH
The undersigned would like to ask Steinberg company to release a version of its widely used Cubase software for GNU/Linux operating system. Here are the reasons for that:
1) No choise of the OS for PC version of Cubase. Cubase PC version automatically means one of MS Windows versions as an operating system.
2) The main trend of Windows development is Windows Vista, but upgrading to it can make the whole system unstable. Uncertain popularity of Windows Vista and end of lifecycle of Windows XP make the future of Cubase PC Windows unclear.
3) Contradiction between hardware resources utilization and stability. Cubase performs more stable in 32-bit versions of Windows which have a number of technical and commercial restrictions of hardware resources utilization such as RAM and CPU utilization restrictions [1][2].
4) Limited support of 64-bit Windows versions by VST-plugin manufacturers [3][4][5][6][7][8][9] and sound hardware manufacturers [10][11][12] makes use of modern 64-bit operating systems even more difficult.
5) Constantly increasing market share of Linux [13][14], including professional area. More users, which chose Linux are unable to use Cubase software due to necessity to install additional proprietary OS with dual boot.
6) GNU/Linux architecture and technologies gives better fit for PC sound studio.
7) Members of Linux community are more familiar with computer science and technologies and they could help in the development of Cubase by reporting bugs etc.
8) GNU/Linux architecture is more flexible and allows to fully utilize all the hardware resources.
9) Due to Cubase Mac OS X version existance (Mac OS X is UNIX compliant [15] and shares some code with GNU/Linux) the development of Linux version is much simpler than writing from scratch.
10) A great occasion for other professional sound software manufacturers (in particular for VST-plugin manufacturers) to release a version of their product for GNU/Linux.
We admit, that now it could be difficult to release Steinberg Cubase under one of free licences (such as GPL) as it is used to in Linux community, because it could go apart of commercial interests of Steinberg company, but there are a number of successful proprietary software products working in Linux and Cubase could join them. We think it will allow Steinberg company to greatly increase a number of its users and to satisfy their interests even more.

I’ve thought long and hard before posting this as a feature request, but these are my reasons:

1. There is now a competitor in the Linux arena which is taking the XP refugees
2. Cubase is already cross-platform
3. Windows turning into a mobile phone
4. The high price of Cubase is more attractive if there is no cost for the OS
5. More and more soundcards have solid Linux drivers
6. Live distros means Cubase could boot from a USB stick

. the list could go on. I could even conceive of a USB device that would incorporate soundcard, eLicenser and storage with an optimized Linux, all in single device, that would eliminate a lot of the variables people encounter with general purpose computers.

Because I want to use Cubase. That’s the first point I was making, that with Bitwig, there’s now at least one other player who can see a commercial advantage in offering professional-quality audio software on Linux as well as on the other two major platforms. At the moment, there are many people who are ditching Windows XP . and not all of them are going Microsoft. There are also cases where an XP computer is being «kept alive» only because of Cubase. If there was a Cubase for Linux, at least these customers would be retained, but I’m sure that at the moment many are looking to Bitwig as the alternative.

But back to your question . why don’t I use Bitwig? I don’t necessarily want to start comparisons, but I’ve been using Cubase for a long time and I don’t see any alternative out there that works as well as Cubase for me and my specific workflow. There’s also a way to use Reaper on Linux via WINE, and there are many audio applications already native to Linux such as Rosegarden and Ardour, but as I say, I just would like the option to run Cubase on Linux as well.

I see that you are a die hard cubase user;) and, are using win7x64

For me, Win7x64 is working pretty well.. It can take more ram than ever and can utilize the fastest cpus..

I think that you (personal opinion) have an awesome OS for making music on. Maybe those XP peeps should look into it as well..- its very similar to XP.. In any case, if it works for YOU, then all is good, right?;)

Re: Cubase for Linux

Post by MrSoundman » Thu Aug 21, 2014 4:57 pm

The reason I thought long and hard before posting this as a feature request was that I knew it would not take long before people would begin passionately defending whatever OS they currently use, thereby completely missing the point. Yes, I use Win7x64, but does that preclude me from asking for the option to use Linux as well? If Cubase was Windows-only, and someone requested a Mac version, would the response then be to praise Windows more?

I’m not asking that Cubase be made available on Linux instead of Windows, just that it be offered as an additional option. No need to feel threatened. This is not an «OS wars» discussion!

As for Windows 7 as an upgrade for XP users, yes, I agree! That’s what I did. But think about this: if you don’t want to go to Windows 8,9,»X», or whatever, and you don’t want to end up in years to come having to buy each separate feature as an «app», or having to be online to use the product you paid for, or having to sign up to some social networking site in order to log in, then you might want to give some thought to where personal computing is going.

The user base for Linux is no longer as small as some may think, and there are certainly not many on this forum, seeing as there isn’t yet a Linux version of any Steinberg product, but I believe there are plenty of people who would like to retain control over their own computers and as far as I can see, the only way to do that in years to come will be via open source operating systems.

To put this another way: if the next version of Cubase drops support for Windows 7 and forces me to use Windows 8, then I will certainly be looking at Bitwig. That’s just me . but maybe, just maybe, it’s not just me?

So am I hearing 3 «yes» votes for Linux then? I still have an Atari ST as well, by the way .

But seriously, I can see only advantages for Steinberg to offer as an option a version of Cubase on Linux. It opens up the possibility of incorporating Cubase into hardware. Imagine Cubase running on the audio interface itself — just plug in your monitor, keyboard and mouse. Could this be done? Could Cubasis on iPAD be done?

Granted, there’s always the danger that it would divert development resources away from the primary product, but modern software development techniques are such that this is not the problem it used to be. I would also accept that some features might not be portable, and of course many VSTs wouldn’t run, but that didn’t stop them bringing an iPAD version to market.

Linux can boot from a USB device. Imagine a «next-gen» USB eLicenser with an ADAT port and a bootable Cubase for Linux . add pres of choice and go on location.

As a business decision it seems highly unlikely Steinberg would support Linux because it has such a tiny share of the OS market.

Without wanting to get into arguing about how these statistics are calculated (and the one above is from January 2014, before Microsoft ended XP support ), I would however ask how anyone could know what OS is running on a computer used only for audio and not connected to the internet?

Such statistics — apart from the fact that nobody is sure how they’re calculated — might not be all that relevant in this case anyway, because I think the primary market for this lies with those who are looking to move off 32-bit XP and find the only option is a new computer with (probably) Windows 8, or an even more expensive and disruptive move to OSX.

Imagine for example you were on Cubase 5 on XP 32-bit using capable hardware, and you wanted to get off XP, move to 64-bit and upgrade to Cubase 7.5; now, imagine you could download an ISO with an optimized version of Linux, with Cubase 7.5 pre-installed, that you could pop into your existing PC and install, all for only the cost of upgrading the license?

Linux is an OS that Is the least popular out of the 3 for both Consumers AND Developers over-all.
Not only that but Steinberg, their Partners and 3rd Party Developers would all need to adjust tremendously
just to support the move.

This would be the least of it so not sure if they would consider it of enough worth.

Well first off if i’m not mistaken Linux is used alot in the movie world of sound engineering.
(rumor has it Warner Bros. has 1 of the biggest Linux studios known to men) it’s a rumor though I actually enver got this verified.

Also the reason not to many people are on Linux is because the companies force them to use either Windows Or Mac when in reality Linux is the better OS when it comes to capabilities.
Last time I checked any decent producer living in 2014 wants any or all of the following

Читайте также:  Установка бруса на крепления

— The best available quality at the lowest cost.
— The lowest latency without having to go analogue
— The highest mobility without losing stability

Did you know that with JACK running natively (being created for) on linux, latency times as low as 1.5ms have been achieved?

You should take a look at LMMS (Linux Multimedia Studio) it’s a free distribution which you can download and then run of a CD/DVD or USB (Live). Go ahead and take a look f-around a bit then imagine this could be Cubase.

It’s pretty awesome when you think of the posibilities.

Now for my last point. When it comes to developers, there is way more developers for Linux than there is for either Windows or Mac.
You saying there is not, is like saying Apple has more developers than Android. It’s and open source platform. There’s developers all around the world waiting to get there hands on new projects.

Let’s say steiny would be launching a contest of somekind. For example a lifetime of free upgrades for the development team who ports Cubase to Linux. There you have your team of developers. There is so many creative (cost efficient) ways to accomplish cross-platform support to Linux.

And believe it or not, we would all benefit from this. It would mean another (huge) group of people using cubase that will be able to give feedback and develop the product. Cause let’s be honest the amount of people with programming knowledge on Linux is a bit higher than the average Windows/Mac user

Now for my last point. When it comes to developers, there is way more developers for Linux than there is for either Windows or Mac.
You saying there is not, is like saying Apple has more developers than Android. It’s and open source platform. There’s developers all around the world waiting to get there hands on new projects.

Let’s say steiny would be launching a contest of somekind. For example a lifetime of free upgrades for the development team who ports Cubase to Linux. There you have your team of developers. There is so many creative (cost efficient) ways to accomplish cross-platform support to Linux.

And believe it or not, we would all benefit from this. It would mean another (huge) group of people using cubase that will be able to give feedback and develop the product. Cause let’s be honest the amount of people with programming knowledge on Linux is a bit higher than the average Windows/Mac user
