I can see only a boxed version of WaveLab Pro 9.5 Full Version in the store, and that is not even available yet?

However there is a download version of WaveLab Elements 9.5 and a downloadable upgrade from Elements to Pro, will I miss something if I go that route?

I would not wish to wait for a box that I won't need.

Also, can't find a trial version anywhere?

On the where i brought all products in this summer new,

The update within the version to buy it, is a little wierd. Software within the version should be free for updates, but hey i payed for the WL95update. So 6 weeks is a little scary for not getting updates to WL9, when you buy it in the shop. Yes i know there was an update in August. It can be strange to people who buy WL9 or Cubase9 and find out the product has updates between versions that must be payed that is basically after 6 weeks after purchase. I did not expect to pay for WL9 just to update.

It is just that ? Why did Steinberg have 0.5 Updates that you need to pay for ? Why not wait and introduce new features at WL10 ?
Or did i miss some History on Steinberg that can explain it ?

Also that it takes a new version 9.5 directory, and does not write over the wavelab 9 dir but creates a new one. It changed also the scrreensetup i had. But ok, it is also strange that the update took 3 installers and runnings. First you download after buy, is the Steinberg updater software, that downloads WL95update, and you open it, it creates a new dir and puts the WL95 in that, to run that and finally WL95 is installed into a seperate install dir (IE mentioned that).

Great it has new features, so i had the money and did the update.

But Why is it the halftime update is not free:?

Not that i am upset or angry with it, policies are policies.
Just i found no answer on that...

All noise related stuff intrests me, so i quess i updated.

Steinberg has always (or for very long) had paid .5 updates, for Cubase as well as Wavelab. If you skip one and buy the next .0 update you end up paying the same amount of money (example: 9.0 to 9.5 is €60, if next 9.5 to 10.0 is €90, then 9.0 to 10.0 would be €150). So it can be seen as a service: you get the new features and don't have to wait for the next number up.

I works if users know. But most new users buy in the shop just to have the software and then later on realize this. For i did not see that mentioned very well on the steinberg main sites. But i just buy the things last summer, 06-2017.
Hahaha It is that i know Steinberg to be good, i did trust it.

Very nice update, thanks PG. All good here, no issues to speak of as per a few other posts. Overall is running much snappier & more positive. on my system. Still a few lags with screen re-draws or re-sizes for certain 3rd party plugs (eg iZoptope), but minor really.

Hi
I originally bought le7 and upgraded to elements 7. Looking at the options upgrade to elements 9.5 from elements 7 is £40 update but from le7 upgrade is £24. I don’t have le7 on my elicenser as elements 7 overwrote it. This seems very unfair, why, and is there a solution to get it for the lower cost?

Thanks David

Where can I find a WL 9.5 installer (update or full) ???
Since I bought the update, I only see this "assistant" everywhere, but no simple and clean "installer" (like there is for Nuendo).
Do I have to buy the box with "media" to get an installer, or is there a download link anywhere?

Any hint would be highly appreciated!!
Thanks in advance

If you log in to your 'MySteinberg' there should be download links to all your registered software under the download tab.

That's what I supposed, how it should be, but it isn't.
Under the tab "Software" I find two lines,
- Nuendo 8 (DAC) (and eLicenser #)
- WaveLab Pro 9.5 (and eLicenser #)
But under tab "Downloads" there is only Nuendo (for WIN and Mac OS), but no WL download links.
That's why I'm mourning ;-)

I don't need it; but I see the same thing - downloads are linked for my other Steinberg product but not for WaveLab. However, you can get the download using the Steinberg Download Assistant (mind you, I hate dedicated download assistants - they are just an unnecessary complication these days).

Thank you guys!
Yes, those "assistants" are annoying, especially when they first want to "phone home" with your machine data before giving you an installer (like this boy does). - Instead of allowing it, I preferred to close the window instantly and in the meantime bought the optional "media box".
- Guess I have to wait for the traditional DVD coming in with snail mail.
:-(
So far...

The updates are for the following versions:

-Wavelab Pro 9
-Wavelab 8.5
-Wavelab 8
-Wavelab 7
-Any version of Wavelab Elements.

It's written in plain english.
If you don't have any of these versions, then you made a mistake and you'll have to ask for a refund:
https://steinberg.support-asknet.com/en ... /solutions

You can buy Wavelab Pro from many online stores. It's not cheap. You'll get a free upgrade to 9.5.

You have to buy it from a store in your region, an online store works. You cannot buy it from Steinberg, only in certain countries.

If you buy any version of Wavelab Pro from a store, you will get Wavelab Pro 9.5 for free. This only counts if it's not used an used copy.

So you should ask for a refund on the Wavelab Pro 9.5 update you bought, because you wont be able to use it. You will already get it for free when you buy Wavelab.

Hello Enemy_Infestation,

do you own a USB-eLicenser? If you do, you can actually purchase a full WaveLab Pro 9.5 license (permanent activation for trial version) as soon as the trial version is available, which will be very soon.

If you don't have a USB-eLicenser, then you have to purchase a full box version from a store in your country as Romantique Tp suggested.

All the best,

I missed this post.

If Steinberg REALLY wanted to spy on you they would be already doing that while you install updates or through the eLicenser Control Center, genius. :lol:

The download manager's only purpose is to allow you to resume the download if you have connection issues, which a lot of people were complaining about.
You're acting like this is some download manager you found on a shady site full of ads. Ridiculous.
