I’m so glad that Steinberg have finally decided to ditch the dongle. I love Cubase, but out of principle I always found it hard to accept that I would have to jump through more hoops than a pirate.
I plan to buy Cubase 12 Pro as soon as it’s available. I would buy it today but the grace period is not too useful for me because I don’t want to have to buy/use a dongle to use 11 until 12 is released.
Without turning this into a discussion about dongles, is it possible to use 11 Elements with a soft licence until 12 is released, if I buy a pro licence today?
