best price for Cubase pro 10.5
Philip f, 02.01.2020
Pro:

It is the best PRICED offer I have found to get Cubase pro. Much cheaper than the full new version of Cubase Pro on this site and on the site of steinberg, even cheaper of an upgrade from Cubase Elements...…
You pay 275 euros for this..... and you should own a Cubase AI version, is the version bundled with some Steinberg products (Cubase Elements or Artist or any other version doesn't qualify for this upgrade) and you get the full version of Cubase pro brand new!
You can get the Cubase Al version buying a cheap interface as Steinberg UR 12 for 88 euros. Install the Cubase Al, then the upgrade and if you don't want the interface you can sell it (declaring that has no longer the Cubase Al bundled). You got the Cubase pro legally for a cheap price. Thanks Thomann!
With regard to the software is well worth the upgrade, I had Elements 9.5 and in pro10.5 the audio quality is improved. I can run the software on a Windows 10, Core 3 7h generation, 8Gb Ram. The vary audio works very well, as multiband compressors, EQ, analog simulators as Magneto II or Quadrafuzz and many bundled plugins that are more than enough for any home studio projects. The score editor, Grove Agent and the Chords functions are great.
All this functions are well worth the upgrade for you don't have to buy other plugins or notation software or virtual drummers or auto tune.....is all bundled with Cubase pro and works perfectly.

perfect service and assistance from Thomann

Cons:
the 3 stars on handling: the process of registration in the site of Steinberg and the handling of the licenses on the USB e licenser in order to upgrade is quite complicated. Remember to insert the download access code with an English keyboard or you can experience messages like this: this code doesn't exists.

I started with cubase 8 LE Student about 3 years ago, keep upgrading to superior versions (Elements 9, 10) and I finally managed to buy the Pro version.

Very helpful for bigger productions. Of course you need a good PC in order to experience this DAW at its full.

Very stable and not resource hungry on Windows 10
Luca_It, 04.02.2020
Note that this is only the update version for Cubase 10.5 Pro. In order to install this program you need to have a Cubase AI version 6 or better registered. It is not essential to install Cubase AI, it only needs to be registered with Steinberg. I am saying this because if you intend to buy Cubase 10.5 Pro full version it is cheaper to buy a not expensive Creative interface such as the UR12, which includes the Cubase AI, and then this upgrade. The credit for this suggestion goes to a previous Thomann reviewer, but I do confirm that it works perfectly.

Cubase 10.5 Pro works with a USB protection device, very similar to a USB pen drive. This means that you can install the program wherever you want, bu it can run fully only if the computer finds the USB pen attached. The mechanism works well both on Windows 7, Windows 10 and Mac Catalina.

My old Cubase version was 5, so the differences are very large. Honestly even Cubase 5 SX worked very well, but it only allowed 32 bits VST plug-ins, so in the end I had to upgrade. Coupled with a good audio interface you have no latency problems with audio. And, if you are into sheet music, Cubase is the perfect tool since you can edit MIDI notes directly from the score.
