Cubase 6 Upgrade to Cubase pro 9.5

I’m finally getting around to getting current. When I upgrade from 6 to 9.5 will my insert preset chains remain? Also, will I have to find my 3rd party plugins after the upgrade?
Should I back up songs before the upgrade?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi and welcome,

Yes, yes (both if you have been using 64-bit Cubase already), not necessarily.

Cubase 6 and Cubase 9.5 are independent applications. So your Cubase 6 will remain on your computer and you will be able to use it (if something gets wrong in Cubase 9.5).

You can download Cubase 9.5 Trial and try it yourself.

Thank You!
