Apologies if the following has been covered in depth previously.
Having used the trial version of Cubase Elements 10.5 I decided to go ahead and purchase it.
To save any conflicts I uninstalled the trial so as to start over again to eliminate any potential conflicts.
What has surprised me is the amount of software and VSTs to install and exactly how to install them.
Using the Download assistant I can see where to download the correct version from.
Under that is Dorico - is that necessary to install?
Then Groove agent drumkits: Should I download them to any particular folder?
Then there’s Nuendo 10, 8 and 2 Live - do I need all three?
Sounds and loops - as with Groove agent.
Do I need Spectra Layers?
The biggest issue surrounds the VST plugins: How do I go about installing them? It seems long-winded to download each separately then install. Also once installed can I delete the downloaded files?
Finally, is Wavelab necessary?
I’m think of uninstalling again and starting once more with any help/assistance offered through these forums.
Thanks in advance for any help and apologies for the long post as music creation using Cubase and VSTs is new to me.
