Cubase 11 elements vs cubase LE8

good afternoon would you like to know what is the difference between cubase LE elements 8 and cubase 11 Elementals? how many channels is it possible to record in cubase 11 elementals?

Hi

I don’t know about your first question, but info regarding the second one is at

It’s been a while since I used Elements 8 but basically the core is the same. Same number of tracks, same effects etc…
The only difference is in functionality and workflow. Some changes to UI and “under the hood” functions. The engine now requires Windows 10 to run if you are on PC.
Other than that not much has changed content wise.
