Can I instal Cubase Pro 11 instruments in Cubase AI 13 using Download Assistant?

I have Cubase Pro 11 which, officially, is incompatible with my M2 MacBook Air 15in running macOS 14.3.1 Sonoma, so I haven’t bothered attempting an installation.

Instead, I am running Cubase AI 13 which is compatible and was bundled with a recent Yamaha synth purchase. I find it will suffice for now, as I also have Logic.

In the Steinberg Download Assistant, choosing my Cubase Pro 11 entitlement lists a number of components as having been downloaded/installed as part of the Cubase AI 13 configuration. It also shows Retrologue 2 and Padshop 2 available as individual instrument downloads – these are the same versions included with Cubase Pro 13/Artist 13.

So, my question is: if I have the Cubase Pro 11 USB dongle inserted, can I instal these two synths separately and have them work within Cubase AI 13?

Yes, I know I could try this out but, if it fails, I’d rather not have the detritus on my Mac. Also, if it works, some other users might find this post useful.

While I do intend upgrade to Cubase Pro 13 at some point, the current price [£171 - 34% of the full purchase price] for just a two generation gap in versions is far too steep.

I took the view that, as Steinberg’s own support article recommended running Cubase 12 Pro in Rosetta mode, there was no incentive to upgrade. I would wait. And, given previous form, Steinberg will most likely have a Cubase upgrade sale coming up in April, so I will wait a little longer. Time will tell.
