from cubase artist 6 to 7 update

Hi everyone

I am using artist 6 and have an Unactivated upgrade to 7 which I never used , if I update from 6 to 7 does this qualify for the free update to v8.5


If you don’t activate the upgrade yet, then yes. You will get upgrade to Cubase Artist 8.5 for free, thanks to the Grace Period.
