Steinberg Cubase Score 1.0 for PC screenshotI like to use hardware,
it makes a lot of difference the smoothness and jitter in your midi events and

There is no audio engine in this, so it works very tightly
and pretty well,Sure you can disable the audio in newer
versions but still have a cluttered interface.

midi works in all the new sequencers out there but I like to use old equipment
and it's fun to try a very simple way of composition and program to do it,
this is a ultra small and useful app for that.

FYI, this is only true if you run it under Windows 3.1/3.11 because that's the last version that supported direct hardware timers access to user space applications. Newer versions as Windows 95 and above moved to software-emulated timers, so running this version under >= Win95 will give you *worse* timing than with more current Cubase versions.
That's why Steinberg had to update all timer-related code on Win95 and above, in order to get back halfway solid MIDI timing.
Some further reading on this matter:
  Resident 2.05.2011 328
No execute Win7 64bit + Emu mode Win95
No execute Win8 64bit + Emu mode WinNT4
No execute Win7 32bit + Emu mode Win2000

Probably, it does not execute by any means in case of Win 64bit or Win7/8 OS.
The time (a file stamp is 1994) when this application was made
and If it executes also in such environments (no VM, or OS Emulation),
I want you to show a method and a screen shot.

Although what you say is partially true, the fact is that up to Windows 98 SE there were some ways to bypass the limitation of the virtualized hardware.

The crude fact is that the motherboards hardware design has evolve to support more and more the Plug & Play criteria, that for MIDI and audio are bad news.

The old hardware, the ones that allow to select manually the IRQs and to assign manually the memory entries, provide a far better performance and lower latencies than the virtualized models but you must give up to a wide use of multitasking and always will have the risk of a generalized crash (the death blue sreen).

The best example of this is the Gigastudio driver GSIF that has under Windows 98 SE only 1.5 ms of latency (real latency) with old audio and MIDI interfaces and the best audio quality than any other driver.

No, the progress is not with us. The needs of the musicians are not taked in account, probably because we don´t represent a significant portion of the market.

This is evident with the almost complete disappearance of high quality audio and MIDI hardware oriented to musicians (I am not speaking of the ultra expensive production systems).

The reality is that under the moder OS all the sequencers, it does not matter if they are for mac or PC, have a worst timming and worst audio quality and many problems to handle through the USB port many simultaneous MIDI string well synchronized.

The most important manufacturer of MIDI interfaces, MOTU, has recognaized this reality that is close related with the hardware design of the present motherboards and processors.

...up to Windows 98 SE there were some ways to bypass the limitation of the virtualized hardware.

Unsupported "hacks", in other words?
I wonder how many of us still use audio/midi interfaces with drivers available for Win98.

What you say is true, and reality is that not every operating system is optimized for low-latency, stutter-free, time-locked audio. But remember that timing has always been an issue, even in the 80s when hardware samplers differed quite a bit when measuring midi-to-audio latency at higher polyphony.
Audio and MIDI are real time applications usually running on a non-realtime OS.
Windows 3.1 was no real time OS either, but locking MIDI events to a hardware timer in fact made Cubase a realtime application, at least for sending MIDI events.

Nonetheless, we do have OSes good enough for Audio and MIDI production today, like iOS over Android (although Android has recently improved somewhat in this regard), freeBSD and MacOSX over Windows (although the difference is currently not as obvious as some claim it to be).
In my experience, the difference is more in the application than in the OS - some manufacturers simply know better how to achieve rock-solid timing in spite of the OS and hardware limitations. Even hardware synth manufacturers differ quite noticeably in this regard today, just remember the all-time sluggish timing of roland workstations and synths, suffering under CPU load way too high when you get close to the promised polyphony, and resulting in latencies sometimes higher than 100ms per note. That's the effect of maximizing profit by minimizing hardware cost.

hi everyone i've updated the link,
you might want to re download it...
I noticed a file missing and have re-packed it!

midi timing, it makes me laugh,
I have never manged to get any new computer to
work as smoothly with midi than my old ATARI ST
haha, costing about 50 quid.

interesting comments everyone,
midi is pretty stable with my steingberg Midex 8,
this version of cubase is pretty good with midi,
its great if you want to write with a very minimal interface.

I havent tested the difference between this and cubase 5,
the latest one I have.It maybe a perceived difference
on my part,i used an emagic mt4 with this version.

The thing about manually setting your IRQ's and stuff,
Yeah i remember turning off ACPI, it does seem to improve
things if your using an older machine,im pretty sure tho that
it would interfere with the multi-core operation of our newer
cpu's tho!.

it's good to experiment and see what happens......

ahhh.... The memories.... that old blank white cubase screen ;)
im getting old, and growing a long beard but still at this game
moving little boxes around on screens,its enough to make
you go crossed eyed for ever.

can i have the midi files so i can use them on other DAWS?

its funny when I used this version of cubase in the 1990s I had an old isa type mpu-401 midi interface by Roland, worked really well just for midi and fairly solid, never noticed jitter and could handle faster bpm's than my Atari I had before it,PCI and usb did not improve midi timing until the Steinberg midex 8 came along which made it better in some respects, we used samplers for audio didn't have daw at that point!:)
