I have a free AI that came with Yamaha MODX purchase. I just claimed it online but I didn’t download the AI.
I want to buy a Pro version and don’t want to install two instances of Cubase (Ai and then Pro), I don’t like to have to reinstall/update later, don’t want any issues.
So I registered my AI copy online and got the email with code confirmation, I then downloaded and installed the installer and stopped there.
Can I just buy the upgrade or do I need to have an installed version of AI first? The checkout process never asked me to verify my AI code and I don’t want to run into problems about it later, in case it’s some weird AI version from MODX or something. Should I proceed with buying just the upgrade?
Also, how long does shipping of the USB dongle take? Is it shipped from UK or from US? (I’m from US) I get taxed in WA state, does Steinberg have business here? Why tax? Just curious.
