I’m planning to migrate my son’s DAW from Ableton to Cubase as that’s what he’s using in school. I was originally planning on buying 10.5 Elements but saw the EE version of Artist really isn’t all that much more. However on Steinberg’s site, I see a USB dongle is requirement for Artist. On the websites where I’ve seen Artist EE available for purchase (such as guitar center), they say they are downloadable software, not a hard product. Is there no dongle required for the EE version?
There’s no difference between EE and non EE versions, correct?
I don’t think it matters, but he’s using NI Komplete Kontrol and an S88 midi controller. Looks like this is all supported. He’s running on a Windows 7 laptop which I intend to upgrade to Windows 10 as it appears that’s a Cubase 10.5 requirement.
Thanks for any info I might need before I spend my $$$.
