Will Cubase IC Pro work with Cubase 6 Artist?

Would like to buy the app if possible, but I own a copy of Cubase 6 Artist.
Will it work? on the website it says only compatible with 6.5 and later… any chance?

Nope, if you want to use this you’ll have to upgrade to Artist 8.5 or Pro 8.5.

There’s a sale going on that will allow you to upgrade to Cubase Pro 8.5 for just 149 bucks, the same you would pay if you were to upgrade to Artist 8.5: http://www.steinberg.net/en/landing_pages/summer_upgrade_special.html
