Which Version to buy

Sorry if this someone else has asked this in the past. I have the SE version of VST Connect as I just purchased Cubase 12 for the first time. I see a full price purchase for VST connect pro and an Upgrade version, but the upgrade version doesn’t show any upgrade path from SE. I am assuming that means I need to purchase Pro at full price, but I wanted to check before I did so.

Yes, you got it right.
