Update from Pro 8 to Version 13 Pro

Hi, I am about to update my version of Cubase Pro from 8 to 13. My version 8 runs off a usb dongle and obviously all of my sessions to date are associated with version 8. Will all of those sessions open seamlessly in the new V 13. I have lots of melodyne stuff going on in my old V8 sessions and i am worried that that data will be lost or corrupted in the update. If I update to V13 is my V8 lost to me forever. Thanks for any help


Yes, they will open in Cubase 13. If you want to test it, how exactly will your specific projects look like, you can download Cubase 13 Trial.

In any case, during the update, you will get Cubase Pro 11 (Upgraded to Cubase 12) license to your USB-eLicenser. With this license, you can start Cubase 11, Cubase 10… Cubase 8 and older. So if your old projects wouldn’t work as you would expect, you can open them in Cubase 8 too.
