Buy used Cubase 9?

Post by powernemo » Sat Sep 23, 2017 4:36 pm

Hey everyone,
This is my first post here.
I have a a question about buying a used copy of Cubase.

This person is selling a copy of Cubase 9 without Elicenser. In order to sell me the software he suggests the following procedure.

- I buy an ELicenser
- I send him my Elicenser ID
- He sends me the license and i have to activate it on the ELicenser within 24 hours (else it becomes inactive)
- Then I activate the ELicenser on steinberg.net
- Download the software from my account

My questions are:
Is it legit?
Do I risk something by giving him my Elicenser ID?

Thanks everyone in advance

This sounds very shady. Don't risk it.
Every time someone says "it must be easy to add/fix", a programmer dies.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc

Look on KVRaudio or VI-control for actual Cubase sales. The legit sellers will always send you their eLicenser to keep.

This gives away the fact that it's a scam. It is impossible to send a license through email, and a license that's been used cannot be "activated" and, the seller has no way to to make it "inactive" after 24 hours.

The only way to transfer a used Cubase Pro license is by connecting two USB elicenser keys to a computer and dragging the license from one to the other.
