upgrade vs. update

Post by mikedit » Tue Dec 19, 2017 6:09 pm

I have Elements 9 which I could update to 9.5, but won't, I'll just keep 9 on this computer
On another computer I have Elements 8 - what can I do with this? can I update to 9.5? or would this be an upgrade? (in the shop it only lists
"Upgrade from Cubase LE, AI, Essential or Sequel" - would this apply?)

No. You should be looking for an UPDATE from Elements 8 if you want Elements 9.5. If you want Artist or Pro it is an UPGRADE.
I see an Update from Cubase Elements in the shop (from any version of Elements).
Cubase Pro 9.0.30. Core-i7 7700HQ, 16GB RAM, Windows 10. UR44. M-Audio Axiom Pro 61. Komplete 11 Ultimate. Jamstix 3.6.5. and Jamstix 4.0. Absolute VST3. 418 Carrier Landings.

Thanks. Actually, I made a mistake - I have a very old Cubase 6. Would there be an update from this?

Cubase 6 what though?

Elements, Artist or Pro? You can only stay on the same version or go up. Thus if your old version is 6 Artist or Pro you can't go to Elements 9.5.

Then you can only move up to Artist 9.5 or Pro 9.5, not to Elements 9.5 as part of an upgrade or update.
