This offer, however, is not available from within the Steinberg Online Shop.
Customers will have to get in touch with the support team via the support form in their MySteinberg account to participate in this offer. HALion 1 & 2 customers will be asked to send the HALion installation CDs and a form including their contact data to the regional support as a proof of purchase. HALion 3 customers will have to provide their MySteinberg account details for us to check if the HALion 3 license is registered. HALion 1, 2 or 3 customers will then receive a link to the online shop where they can purchase a HALion 6 retail box at the reduced price point.

The competitive crossgrades require a proof of purchase for the competitive product. The proof has to be provided with the order in the Steinberg Online Shop. Qualifying products are NI Kontakt & Komplete, Motu Machfive, UVI Falcon and Spectrasonics Omnisphere.

As usual, very bad upgrade prices for people who have already multiple products.

I own Absolute 1, Halion 5 and GA 4 and haver to pay 299 to gat Absolute 3 ?
Sorry, but no.

Time to invest in a different brand.

Actually, you could upgrade to Absolute 2 right now for 199 bucks and you'll get Absolute 3 for free when it comes out. That's the upgrade to Halion 6 plus Halion Symphonic Orchestra + The Grand 3 for just 50 bucks each.

Updating from Absolute 1 to 2 in the grace period is really the best-scenario for you right now. This way would also be able to sell your separate HALion 5 and Groove Agent 4 licenses, since both will be covered with the Absolute 3 license.

Unfortunately our license management and shop system does not cover your specific update situation.

If you update from HALion 4 to HALion 5 before Thursday, your license will turn into a H6 license since you are in the grace period. Since HALion 6 includes HALion Sonic 3, you will get HS3 for 99EUR. Deal?

As soon as HALion 6 will be released, you will find the installers available for download.

Please open your eLicenser Control Center and start the maintenance. That's it.

thx again (also to jaslan)

"That´s it" - nearly
together with your previous link still doesn´t work, but this way works (for all those who have same problem) :

1.) maintenance LCC
2.) you´ll get during the maintenance a prompted-message about "Developer granted your Absolute2 to Absloute3" (or so...)
3.) now go internet, Steinberg.net there "MySteinberg" and under "Downloads" you´ll find the Installer-tool
4.) start it and select what you need ;)

btw:
there´s for Absolute2 to Absolute3-upgrades only need to get "HALion6" and "HALion Sonic 3", right?
