Cubase 6 Artist or Cubase 8 Elements?

I was wondering what would the best between Cubase 6 Artist and Cubase 8 Elements.
Is is worth buying the 8 Elements if I already have 6 Artist in term of features?


Hey Tetreaultc,

What are you looking to get out of either would be my first question?

The only thing that is worth mentioning here is the new mixconsole in my opinion and the new multiout instrument tracks perhaps.

Why would you buy Cubase 8 Elements if you already have Artist 6, and the upgrade from Artist 6 to Artist 8.5 is just 50 bucks more than buying Elements? Something seems fishy.
