I currently have NO versions of Studio One. I almost bought Studio One 4 Artist a la carte, but I realized what a great deal it is to get it with a piece of hardware. I have a recording interface but I could use another one, so I plan on buying a new AudioBox and using the Studio One Artist that comes with the hardware purchase.
My question is whether or not the VERSION of Studio One that I'll get to download is dependent on the age of the hardware. For example, if I buy a new AudioBox from my local Guitar Center, but it's older stock from last year (with an older serial number), will I only get Studio One version 3? Or is the version of Studio One that I get to download based on the date that I purchase/register the hardware? I'm buying this mostly for the software, so getting version 4 is my priority. Thanks!
