Majority Of Steinberg Apps Lion Savvy


Its clear that making audio applications compatible with Apple's Lion OS X 10.7 is not an insignificant task, with some developers getting there faster than others.

Today, Steinberg announced that many of their applications are now qualified,  with more coming soon through various patches and updates. However, currently Cubase in 64-bit mode cannot handle 32-bit VST Plug-ins - this is being looked into. Nuendo 5.5 is certified.
 

The majority of Steinberg products are Lion compatible; however, further development is required to ensure overall compatibility through the entire product range. While the testing phase was completed prior to the release of Lion, Steinberg will release patches and driver updates for current products with remaining issues. 
 
Current status of product compatibility. 
The current Cubase line of products supports Lion with the 6.0.2 and 6.0.3 maintenance updates.
LE and AI versions of Cubase have been tested and certified for Lion
Due to changes in Lion, Cubase running in 64-bit mode cannot properly handle 32-bit VST plug-ins. This issue, however, is currently being addressed and will be resolved shortly.
The current WaveLab line of products including the LE version supports Lion with the 7.1 maintenance update.
By releasing Nuendo 5.5 today, Nuendo is fully compatible with Lion. Also compatible is the Nuendo SyncStation.
Sequel 2 is certified to be fully Lion compatible, with no further updates required.

The latest VST instruments support Lion, i.e., HALion 4, HALion Sonic and The Grand 3. Groove Agent 3 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra have not been certified as compatible with Lion.

The RND Portico plug-ins are certified to be fully Lion compatible.
Content sets and Steinberg’s license tool, eLicenser Control Center, are Lion compatible.
Hardware products CC121, MR816 CSX/X and the CI series are yet to be tested.
