Cubase Artist 6/7 Comparison (help?)

Postby monsterjazzlicks » Fri May 17, 2013 3:20 pm

Hi folks,

i already have Cubase Artist 6 and was thinking of upgrading to Artist 7 costing £130. What i am not sure about though is three specific things. i did have a good look at the specifications but wanted to check with members on here (preferably someone who has Artist 7) first.

1 - i have HALion Sonic and HALion SE but wondered if Artist 7 comes with any additional sounds to these ??

2 - Does Artist 7 come with any extra VST FX (eg. Chorus, Compressors, etc) ?? And does it come with the full version of Roomworks Reverb (ie. not the SE version).

3 - Does Artist 7 come with the VariSpeed facility ??

Thanks very much in advance..............

Best,

Paul

Hi guys,

i am definately going to purchase a hard copy of Cubase Artist 7 (so an Upgrade from my current Artist 6). Its 140 GBP delivered by my regular ebay music shop (Absolute Music Solutions who are excellent).

Does anyone know if there is a TIME LIMIT from when you purchase the item to when it needs to be installed (like 28 x days or something) ??

Ta,

Paul

Hi monsterjazzlicks,

no time limit at all. You can install Cubase and activate your license whenever you want.

They are separate programs. You can leave 6 installed.

Cheers Jaslan,

So am am best to keep BOTH versions (Artist 6 & 7) on my PC ?? Could i not get 'conflictions' by having two Cubase programs onboard ??

i have never upgraded before and so i want to make sure i do it the correct way !! :o

Paul

It doesn't matter, they can live together just fine but they don't need eachother. I suggest you keep 6 until you are sure the conversion is complete and all your old projects open fine in your new Cubase.

Cheers Strophoid,

Thats a really good idea, ta.

So the Uprgrade to Artist 7 RETAINS Artist 6 on a PC. i thought it would automatically erase it. i did not realise you could have BOTH programs running on the same PC.

But obviously you need Artist 6 in the first place to upgrade (otherwise you would have to buy Artist 7 from scratch).

Thanks,

Paul

Actually, the only thing you need in order to upgrade is the LICENSE. You don't even need to have Cubase 6 installed during the upgrade. Your Cubase 6 license will be replaced with a C7 license (which will run prior versions of Cubase). But the programs themselves are basicallly untouched and irrelevant in the upgrade process.

Thanks Jaslan,

i got it now. So its the eLicensor which gets updated. And therefore the Artist 7 software does not replace or borrow from the Artist 6 software.

It might depend on what upgrade you get - Some download upgrades require the content (HalionSonic SE, Rverence...) of a previousliy installed version 6.

Thanks guys,

That's all really helpful indeed.

I purchased Artist 7 today (along with some other things) and so it should arrive in the post by end of next week.

If I get stuck with anything then I know where to come !! :geek:

Hi monsterjazzlicks,

you are allowed to install it in up to 3 computers, but you can only use it on one at a time, since the Dongle has to be connected the whole time.

Cheers Luis,

So multi-istallation is fine and the dongle allows you to computer-hop.

i was asking because i am buying a new laptop this week (so i will the have a Dell 15" screen and a Dell 17" screen) and was not sure about this fact. So am i also able to install all the other Steinberg related software (eg. HALion Sonic and Content Loop Sets) onto a second PC ??

Ta,

Paul

Hi guys,

i just installed my new Cubase Artist 7 (upgrade from Artist 6) into my PC and have some questions please.

The package comes with CD's containing HALion Sonic and HALion SE. i have both of these already (from Artist 6) on my PC so just to check the obvious, i am assuming i do not need to re-install them ??

i loaded the Cubase Artist 7 CD into my PC, followed all the prompts and it installed in less than 5 x minutes, no problem. However, i can't seem to FIND it anywhere and have no idea where it may have put it ?? i have never done a upgrade before so maybe i have done something wrong in the installation process ?? i have left Artist 6 on my PC because someome (on here) suggested i do so just incase my old projects (of the past 2 x years) do play in Artist 7 version. Also, last year i downloaded the 28 x day trial Cubase 7 FULL and still have it on my PC. Not sure if that is causing any conflictions ??

And lastly, i registered the new product onto my e-Lisencer (ie with the Activation Code) and also in my 'My Steinberg' online account. Whilst there i noticed another one called 'Soft e-Licenser' and i do not know what this is ?? Therefore at present i have nothing whatsoever registered to it. Does this matter please ??


USB-eLicenser: 1178305 64F619 eLicenser name OK

If the artist 7 license shows on your USB elicenser then it's fine. The soft licenser is only used for LE/AI/Elements versions of Cubase so if it's empty that's fine.
I'm not at my DAW now, but I guess there should be a shortcut to Cubase on your desktop/in your start menu now. It might be called Cubase 7 instead of Cubase Artist 7.

Else look for it in the folder where you installed Cubase to, it should be there. ;)

i had no idea what the Soft Licenser was for. Yes, all my products are registered to my USB eLicenser so i will just leave everything as it is.


I'm not at my DAW now, but I guess there should be a shortcut to Cubase on your desktop/in your start menu now. It might be called Cubase 7 instead of Cubase Artist 7.


Yes, i thought it would automatically create a desktop shortcut. What i think has happened (if this makes sense) is that it has overwritten everything which was CUBASE 7 (the FULL trial version) and and left Artist 6 untouched. All my Cubase 7 Trial data has totally vanished !! When i click on the icon which was titled 'Cubase 7 Trial' (and is still titled 'Cubase 7 Trial') it opens up Artist 7. So what i am saying is, Artist 6 remains as was, but the TRIAL version of Cubase 7 FULL has now disappeared and been replaced be Artist 7.

Else look for it in the folder where you installed Cubase to, it should be there. ;)


Thanks, let me know what you think............

Interesting, seems like it overwrote at least some of your Cubase 7 trial. That's not strange because Cubase 7 and Cubase artist 7 are exactly the same, it's the license that determines which features are available and which aren't.

The question is, does it work well? Do you have all the presets for plugins for example? If everything is fine, I guess you could just go with it. If you want to be sure, you could also uninstall Cubase 7 completely (both artist and the trial), then pop the disc back in and install Cubase artist 7 again. No need to do the license activation etc again, that's all done and stored on the USB key. As long as the latest version of the eLCC is installed you can uninstall/reinstall Cubase whenever you like.
