I have Cubase Elements 11 license and I’m itching to upgrade it to Artist, but because it has to come with the eLicenser (for now) I was reluctant to order from Steinberg directly because it will likely take a week or so to get here…
So I checked with 3rd party resellers and was surprised to see that:
- None of them carry Elements → Artist upgrade, only AI → Artist
- The upgrade AI → Artist at 3rd party resellers is half the price of what it costs from Steinberg (no, it’s not EDU version) and it’s cheaper than Elements → Artist from Steinberg, which is weird because AI is a lower version
So, my question is if AI → Artist upgrade would work for me, despite me having Elements?
