Upgrade to Cubase 13 Artist from Cubase 11 Pro

Hi,

I’m looking at upgrading Cubase from 11 to 13. I currently own Cubase 11 Pro, but looking at the feature list it looks like Cubase 13 Artist would suit my needs, so I no longer require the more expensive pro version.

When trying to update on the steinberg website, I only have the option to update to Cubase 13 Pro from 11 Pro.

When clicking to update to Cubase Artist 13, cubase pro isn’t listed on the required products. States you need Cubase Artist 11, with pro version not listed.

Anyone know if the Artist 13 upgrade will work from Pro 11? I assume it will as Pro has more features than Artist, but my only concern is it isn’t listed.

Many thanks,

Hi,

welcome to the forum.
As far as I can tell, Steinberg doesn’t offer “downgrades” to a smaller Cubase variants. If you have a Pro license, you can only update to a newer Pro version. So if you buy an Artist 13 upgrade, you probably won’t be able to apply it to your Pro license.

Hi,

You are correct, there are no downgrades available. Btw, we call them editions, instead of variants. :wink:
