Hi, I’m a Sonar using evaluating both Cubase and Studio One, and as I am primarily a songwriter who creates in MIDI and then bounces to audio, I think that Cubase is probably the one I’m going to go with.
Question for Cubase support: I’m currently using the 9.5 demo. If and when I decide to actually purchase the competitive crossgrade, should I first totally uninstall the demo before I download the “purchased” version, or is it simply a matter of “authorizing” the trial version to become a “purchased” version? In either case, will either uninstalling the demo and reinstalling the purchased version (or converting the trial to a purchased version) automatically do whatever needs to be done to the e-licenser card? I just don’t want to get in a situation where I miss a step that screws the e-licenser up.
Also, while we’re talking about e-licensers, do the Cubase one that I have work with other programs like an iLok? I’m hoping Cubase is the only program I ever use that needs this kind of thing, but I’d hate to have to buy a separate dongle in the future.
