Avoid anything from Steinberg like the plague! Their customer service is non-existent. I used Cubase for about 8 years, spending over $2000.00 on every upgrade that was required (you never get it paid for, like share-cropping). Then, that idiotic, fragile little dongle got broke, rendering the $800.00 program, that I spent $2000.00 keeping current on over 8 years , completely unusable. After a call to Steinberg, and finally getting to talk to someone (after several weeks of leaving messages) I was told that they do not replace dongles and or licenses, and that I would have to buy the new version of Cubase, for $400.00-$700.00 (depending on the version), even though I had been a registered customer for 8 years, and there was no question of me owning a legal license for the software. That was it for me. When Yamaha bought Steinbeg, I thought the customer service would get better (Yamaha has excellent Customer Service as a rule), but Yamaha just reffered me back to Steinberg, who repeated the same old line.
Like I said, avoid anything from Steinberg if you want to hang on to your money.
