Hi - My new Yamaha amp came with Cubase AI 6 but it’s now expired. I’ve finally gotten used to it and love it. I don’t want to upgrade to a newer version if I don’t have to. My question is how can I make AI 6 a permanent, full functioning program? If I upgrade to Elements 6 for $39 will that be a permanent purchase with no future purchases necessary? And does Elements 6 have the same layout as AI 6?
But I’m confused. Didn’t I activate it to get the trial version?? About a week before my 30 days was up I kept getting a message when opening Cubase that I had one week left to mix down tracks. Now I can do everything but mix down my completed mix. Are you saying I can just activate it somehow without having to buy anything or upgrade?
Problem is the only license # I have keeps getting an error that it’s already been used. But that’s called a soft license and it looks like it’s tied to the demo version that ran from 11/7 to 12/7.
When I go to “Add Software” and enter the soft license number I have it tells me “software is already requested for this eLicenser”. If that’s the case I must have somehow requested it without knowing while trying to figure this out. Do I have to wait for someone to get back to me??
Sorry for the confusion. I’m pretty good with things like this but this has to be the most confusing process I’ve come across in a long time. I would think the Cubase program would point me in the right direction but it keeps pointing me to the online store to either upgrade to Elements 6 or purchase Cubase 7.5.
