Upgrade from Cubase Studio 4

Am i able to upgrade my Cubase Studio 4 to Artist 12 or 13? It seems like there is no option to upgrade from Studio 4, only AI and LE 4-11.

Hi and welcome to the forum,

I’m sorry, this is not possible.

There was a curious situation when Cubase 6 was introduced. My first Cubase purchase was Studio 5 (actually started with LE4 bundled with a crappy TASCAM interface). I couldn’t update to the new “Artist” 6 because, at the time, it was considered a "down"date. I think this must still be carrying over. Cubase “full” 4 can still be updated, but not Studio 4. Kind of strange. But, I guess, it is what it is.
