Way back in 2012 I purchased Cubase 6 and upgraded to 6.5. The software remained largely unused (due to its steep learning curve, I kept going back to Adobe Audition 3, which I knew pretty well). I currently use a Tascam US-2000 interface into a quad core laptop (circa 2013!), with a Faderport (v1) connected.
Over the Covid 19 lockdown, I set myself the task of learning Cubase. I have made pretty good progress and and am becoming familiar with its use - very powerful, yet still a bit daunting.
Is it worth upgrading to Cubase 10.5? (The upgrade cost is around $450 Aussie. I think occasionally Steinberg do upgrade deals as well).
What would be the top five or so (big picture) advantages of upgrading from 6.5? (There is plenty on the Steinberg site about upgrading from 9 to 10/10.5, but nothing that gives a feel for the large gap between 6.5 & 10.5).
If I upgrade, will I have to re-learn what I already know?
If I upgrade from 6.5 to 10.5, can I seamlessly load and edit projects that were created in 6.5?
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
