Cubase 9 upgrade offer - not valid for PRO owners?

Post by jbienstman » Tue Aug 08, 2017 5:15 pm

Hi,

I really wanted to get this cleared out and hope that a Steinberg representative will answer. After reading the announcement - I was actually trying to buy an upgrade for my Pro 8 version to Pro 9 - redeeming the "UPGRADE17" code in the shop when I noticed there was no 40% off!

then I read the "literal" small print on the News Item: "To qualify for the Cubase Pro 9 upgrade offer, one of the following products is required: Cubase Artist 6/6.5/7/7.5/8/8.5/9, Cubase Elements/LE/AI/Essential/Studio/SX/SL or Sequel"

I couldn't believe it - until I read other posts on this forum - decided to register simply to ask this:

- What is the commercial reasoning behind this? Because I'm a Pro Owner I can afford the full price - Well maybe I own a pro version, but that doesn't mean I make money with my music, so 40% off was exactly what I was waiting for to get up to date... Will there be a separate sale for PRO owners (soon)?

Cheers,

J.

It is all in the naming, Steinberg call the offers two different things,
update = like for like pro 8.5 to pro 9 etc
Upgrade = from one type to another eg. elements to artist etc.

you just need to get the timing right on the discount offers as they are both usually available but just get offered at different times.
