Hi guys, I hope you’re well!
So, here is a quick summary of the Cubase versions I had.
First, Cubase 5. I was new so my friend gave just that old version (some features on Cubase 5 back then weren’t available on this version), not great but was fine. I started learning and things went fine and got interested in Cubase.
Second, Cubase 8 Elements. Another friend gave me that when unfortunately Cubase 5 was breaking down like not reading plug-ins anymore, etc, I tried everything but it was over. Turned out it was a 30-day trial! Opened my Cubase 5 projects, everything was there; plugins, mixer settings, and everything even tracks colors.
Third, finally officially bought the Cubase 11 pro; it will be delivered to home but… I am outside the country for a holiday so I decided to get Cubase 11 elements trial. Got it and after 1 hour of trying to find the serial number, finally got it! BUT… It won’t open any of my projects that I spent HOURS on. Thought about exporting all the tracks but Cubase 8 trial has finished and Cubase 5 will export without the effects of the plugins as it DOESN’T READ anymore.
