VST3 Compatibility for Cubase Elemets

Hi all!

I’m a hobbyist home studio guy and currently on Cubase Elements 9.5 (yet to upgrade for some time, but willing to do so it needed) looking to grab a copy of Vocalign.

Apparently, Elements isn’t supported per their page (can’t include the link here) “because these versions of Cubase do not support VST3 Sidechain Inputs.”

Does anyone know whether Elements actually does, and if not, whether Artist would (current needs might not justify me upgrading to Pro).

Thank you!
