Installing cubase 10.5 on multiple computers....

I bought and installed Cubase 10.5, i’m looking to install on my desktop as well. However, in the "My Products section, it does not show a link to download it, yet shows for my previous version. How do I get my download?

You didn’t list what version of Cubase 10.5 you have (you should add that info to your forum signature).

You can find software by downloading the Steinberg Download Assistant (SDA). You can then install on whatever computer you want. But, that does not mean you can use CB on the separate computers. Cubase versions like Pro and Artist have their license stored on a USB eLicenser (dongle). You can use your Cubase on the computer that has the dongle connected to it. Other Cubase versions like Elements, LE, AI have their license stored on a soft-eLicense. Those version can only be used on the computer where the soft-eLicense is stored. You can move a license that is stored on a soft-eLicense to a USB eLicense (once you do, you can’t move it back) and use those versions on the computer where the dongle is connected. If you don’t have one, a USB eLicenser dongle is a separate purchase available from the Steinberg Shop (and other retailers).

So I have the same question. I have Cubase 10.5 on my Desktop PC. Runs well. I want to put it onmy MACBOOK air as well. So are you saying i can do that and just move my eLicencer dongle back and forth depending on what computer i want to work on? If i move it to the MAC will i be able to go back to the PC and back and forth?


Yes. Install it on both. Insert the USB-eLicenser into whichever you want to use at any given time.


If your license sits on the USB-eLicenser, you can do it. By default Cubase Pro and Artist licenses sir on the USB-eLicenser. Other Cubase editions licenses sits on the Soft-eLicenser, where you can’t do this. But you can buy USB-eLicenser and transfer the Soft-eLicense to the USB-eLicenser too. Then even these licenses can be used at multiple computers.

The EULA says, you can use up to 4 computers.
