Is it possible: Cubase 8.5 PRO to 9.0 Artist in the future?

Hi guys!

I bought few days ago Cubase 8.5 Pro. I was starting to wonder… If in the future I will decide that I don’t need Pro for my use and Cubase Artist would be enough for me, and I would like to have an update.
Would it be possible to update (version) but downgrade (program Pro->Artist)???
I’m asking because I know that updating Cubase Artist is cheaper that updating Cubase Pro.

Best regards


I wouldn’t expect so. There has not been this kind of downgrade ever in the Steinberg history, as far as I know.

I think chances are null!

Best way would to be selling your c8.5 pro and buying the C9 artist.

There’s absolutely NO point in downgrading. The upgrade prices for both Pro and Artist versions are the same, you’ll be only losing features.

Thank you for your answers!

It is true, that when you update from 8.0 to 8.5 the price is the same for both Pro and Artist
But when you want to upadte from 7.5 to 8.5 Artist is 100 EUR, and Pro is 150 EUR, so it differs little bit…
