Cubase 5 64 bit on mac?

So I finally decided to go mac. Bought a Macbook Pro, upgraded it with an SSD and 16gig of Ram, installed Cubase 5 and....no 64 bit!?

Well...I can't find the 64 bit installer on the DVD for mac. Is it even possible?

Go to Applications/ Right click on Cubase 5/ see if there is a 32 bit box checked there. If there is, uncheck it. I cant remember if C5 ran in 64 bit. I would highly encourage you to move up to C7 now

I don't think Cubase 5 offers 64-bit, does it?

I dont think so either on the Mac. I think that started with version 6.

Ill check my box. It says 64 bit under Vista, no mention of Mac 64 bit
Windows had 64 bit way before Mac BTW

Thanks for the reply. Indeed 64 bit Cubase 5 is not there....

Just wondering though, why do you 'highly' recommend upgrading to C7?

Bought the upgrade, 250 more euro's Are you sure Cubase 7 supports 64 bit on Mac? And how is Cubase 7 performance wise on Mac?

Im running it in 64 bit here on OSX 10.8.2

They have a new feature that is supposed to help with performance on Mac. I think the performance is better on my end

All my plugins are 64 bit here as well.
