    Hi, this is my first thread so I want to say Hello!

    For 10 years Ive been working on Cubase5. Now I need more memory (Cubase 5 is 32bit, alocating max 3,5GB) for my projects.

    I do not need working any fancy features, variaudio, renderinplace etc.
    I need pure Cubase to run kontakt/synth vst/mediabay.

    I read many threads where people have issues with running/working versions of Cubase.

    Is there a working version that you guys can advice?

    Take a look at the comparison chart: https://new.steinberg.net/cubase/compare-editions/

    If you just need Cubase as a VST host, Cubase LE/AI might be enough (bundled with hardware/magazines or around $10-$15 on eBay).
    Maybe you don't even need Cubase at all. There are also various options that are completely free (like Cakewalk).

    Thanks for the useful link. I found that i need one of advanced feature - TIME WARP (song grid aligning to beats)

    I didn't know Cakewalk made a free DAW! Are you know/using this? Maybe you can tell there is a Time Warp feature?

    Time Warp - To create a tempo map from a freely played audio file? Yes this is possible. Give it a try. Cakewalk is a fully-fledged modern daw for free. The only thing I miss is a chord track. Maybe it meets your requirements. It is quite actively developed and frequently updated.

    Great daw, especially for free. Cakewalk Bandlab

    Edit
    Oh forgott ... it is basically Sonar platinum from Cakewalk. Bought by bandlab renamed to Cakewalk by band lab.

    Not exactly. I thought more about film scoring - adjusting tempo of the project to video timming.

    I am not into film scoring. Sonar aka cakewalk has video functions. How good they are, no clue. But for free give it a try. All you might waste is some time.

    Cakewalk is from ROLAND . the first 64bit DAW for WIN. BandLAB is an new Statup . he buy the Cakewalk. and now ist for free.
    Sonar ( Bandlab ) is an semi ( Professional DAW . Iam working with this since 2005.
    Very good and easy DAW . for bigenners too. The platinu version came with XLN audio AD drummer2 . Nomadfactory etc. Big companies like Softtube cooperate with Cakewalk . The pro chanel , and the multi Window system . is an very inuativ and easy workflow .
    Sonar Platinum . Best DAW for WIN only .SOFTUBE plugins is exclusiv in the SONAR PROCHANEL . pretty nice .
    Melodyne integration etc . No Blacklistet plugins . and SONAR came with an 32 bit Bitbridge too.
    check it out

    You can create a tempo map: https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR X3&language=3&help=EditingMIDI.39.html


    (I guess from 1:50 is what you're interested in.)

    Nope, Sonar was developed by Cakewalk (former Twelve Tone Systems). A majority interest of Cakewalk was later bought by Roland, but sold very soon to Gibson/Tascam. And now Gibson sold it to BandLab.
