First: I will upgrade my Elements license, just to get sidechaining. That little thing is worth it. However, the Pro improvements are for the most part not really interesting. Content and plugins is not at all enticing, and the rest has no bearing on how I work.
However, two things that are mentioned are clear deal-makers: Proper GUI scaling and better CPU performance. But looking through this forum, other forums and FB groups gives no definite answer to:
- does the scaling work properly (eg. 125 and 150)? [ftr: I can live with the NI issues until they fix them]
- has the CPU usage actually been improved (on Windows)? [I saw Dawbench’ intial test, but it contradicts other reports, which is odd]
A ‘yes’ on one or both = def. upgrade.
