Upgrade from Elements 6/7 or Essentials 4/5
If you're after most of the features of the fully fledged Cubase 7.5 but are focused more on recording music and less fussed about features like 5.1 Surround sound mixing and intelligent composition assistance then Artist could be for you! Cubase 7.5 contains a lot of extra features designed for scoring soundtracks and some advanced features most users will never actually touch. So why not save the money on those features and get Artist instead!
Here's what Steinberg say about Artist 7.5
Adding exciting new features to boost musical creativity and speed up your workflow, Cubase Artist 7.5 extends capabilities from version 7 such as MixConsole and the chord track with the addition of new recording tools, track and instrument handling features, as well as a range of new virtual instruments and first class effects.
