**** please note the above downloads are not able to be used by anyone unless you own a license of an equivelant or higher version of the full CUBASE pro product line. so theres no point in downloading unless you own a license to use it with!! these are only usefull to registered owners of cubase for backward compatibility with older computers; ie: if you own cubase 8 then you can run cubase 7 or 6 or 5 on an older computer with an older OS.

Re: cubase versions limitations comparison

versions 6-10

LE : Limited to 24 Midi tracks, 16 Audio tracks
AI : Limited to 48 Midi tracks, 32 Audio tracks
Essential : unlimited Midi Tracks; 64 audio tracks,
Elements : Limited to 64 MIDI Tracks, 48 Audio Tracks

LE : 64 MIDI Tracks, 48 Audio Tracks, 2 inst slots
SE : unlimited Midi Tracks, 48 Audio tracks, 16 inst slots
SL : unlimited Midi Tracks, 48 Audio Tracks, 32 inst slots
SX : unlimited Midi Tracks, 64 Audio tracks; 64 inst slots


Elements are limited to 64 midi tracks; whereas Essentials versions had unlimited midi tracks (like the full pro cubase product)
what steinberg did was effectively move the LE range down to a lower limitation (less tracks for the user)
basically they introduced Elements as  a paid license that contained the same 64 midi / 48 audio limits as the old LE did; but the new LE versions were shrunk down to 24 midi / 16 audio so any Cubase LE after v5 has been nerfed quite a bit
