Currently I use “Cubase LE AI Elements 8” (I think).
When I startup Cubase I (now and then) get an offer to upgrade to “Cubase Elements 8”. I can choose for “Upgrade now”. When I select this option it links me to the Steinberg-Shop. Here I see a link “learn more about Cubase Elements 8”. See screenshot…
When I choose this link (to order the upgrade) it links me to the Cubase Elements 9.5 version! See screenshot…
Here I can choose to: Buy the full version or upgrade from "LE, AI".
The upgrade appears to have the same price as the offer I see when I start up Cubase.
Leaves me with three simple questions:
1: Witch version am I using? The shortcut on my desktop made by Cubase says “Cubase LE AI Elements 8”. When I select “Help/About Cubase…” in the Cubase Menu-bar, it says “Cubase AI”. See screenshot…
2: Can I use these steps (upgrade from my Cubase LE AI Elements 8) to Cubase Elements 9.5? Or are this two different versions?
3: Will the upgrade acquire a new installation (do I loose all my settings?). If so, is there a way to ‘backup’ my settings?
I (almost) feel a little embarrassed to have to ask these questions but I want to be sure I’m following the right steps.
Thanks in advance for your explanation.
