This is not helpful, biut here is the response I got from Steinberg USA regarding this (I had also asked about the trial version):
Steve,

Their is not a Cubase 6 trial up yet. It should be shipping in the US fairly soon. I do not have a specific date as of yet.
I will say they are much faster in responding than they were say a year ago.
independent manufacturer rep (not a Steinberg employee, and I do not speak for them)
cubase pro, nuendo, and dorico pro; latest versions

I posted this in the other shipping thread....but since this one specifically titled the US, I guess it could bear a reprint.
As usual, Europe gets first dibs. Here in the U.S., we'll probably see stuff shipping mid February, if past (C4, C5) shipping schedules are any indicator. There's always been a 2-3 week (or so) lag while the stuff makes its way through Customs and into a shipping distribution center somewhere.
Surely some of you must remember the 2-3 week lag the US got when C4 and C5 were shipped? European customers got theirs first and we followed week later. What makes anyone think the process is going to change?

Sure, Steinberg USA responds faster to shipping queries....but quickly answering "when?" emails will still have no bearing on when the actual product gets in their hands and ships out of California. I'm telling you, that's still going to be weeks away from now.

This is one of those posts where I hope I will be totally wrong....but I don't think so.

From an email I received today from Steinberg...

"Steinberg is extremely proud to announce the release of Cubase 6. Steinberg expects to ship Cubase 6 and Cubase Artist 6 by the end of January, so pre-order your update or full version now, or check it out in depth at your local Steinberg dealer."

Is your credit card being charged right when you preorder or when it ships?

All these posts about shipping - where, when, why, how etc.....

I do hope Steinberg learn from this.

It would have been SO much easier to offer us a download option!

They won't. This creates a buzz and frenzy for the new product. You can't buy advertising like that to keep something in your customer's faces.

I assume since you're posting in the USA shipping thread you are in the U.S.? Has anyone else in the U.S. had there credit card charged yet? I placed my order on the 14th and it still hasn't been charged yet...

I mentioned in another thread I got this email from AskNet :
"Dear John,
Thank you for contacting asknet Customer Service.
The Cubase 6 will officially release on Monday and products will commence shipment on that date.
You will receive a tracking number as soon your order has been sent out for delivery.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind regards,
asknet Customer Service"


I got this email on Friday Jan14.

I have not received a shipment confirmation email.

so I talked to my credit card company and they said everything is cool on their end they're just waiting for AskNet/Steinberg to bill them...

its weird how some peoples cards got charged right away and others are still waiting (or maybe its just me?). I'm curious to know what the variable might be... maybe AskNet charged only the credit cards of everyone who ordered in the first 3-4 hours?

hmmm interesting... I placed my order on Friday the 14th sometime around 5-6 PST. I wonder if the fact that I placed my order so much later than you has something to do with it?

I placed my order on the 15th, but around 1:00AM, so really it was a Friday night. I guess I was charged immediately since they sent me an invoice containing a customer number, order number and an item number with prices. I e-mailed Steinberg North America today and am still awaiting a response. I'm about to go into my 5th day since ordering and still haven't received a tracking number. Sure am glad I'm not the only one.

You might want to check with your credit card company to see if it was actually charged... I also got an invoice containing a customer number, order number and an item number immediately after I placed my order.

Well I haven't checked my card but they must have considering I received a "Proof Of Purchase" email. I ordered from a prepaid Visa card (whenever I order online), and the balance on the card was $150 less I believe (if my memory serves correct). Why, have you received your copy (of Cubase 6)?

I meant you should check you to see if if your credit card was charged because I too got the "Proof Of Purchase" email but AskNet/Steinberg still hasn't charged my credit card.

Okay, I've just called my Visa prepaid customer service hotline and, upon hearing the account balance I can confirm that Steinberg definitely withdrew $149.99 from my account. I guess thats a good thing?

I post this often in other forums. Possibly a little patience is in order. Expecting something to be available immediately after or even during a NAMM show seems a little impractical. So we wait a couple of weeks. When it's ready, it's ready. Surely we can find something productive to do in the meantime. I want it too. Will probably get an iMac and use it exclusively for C6 at the outset. But my life is not going to grind to a halt while I wait on my C6 shipment. Consider Roland and others. In the past we could count on up to 6 months after NAMM to see their new offerings.

Usually I suggest passing the time by learning something about music. In this case I suggest learning something about Cubase. It is such a deep program I will guess that no-one knows everything there is to know about it. Personally I'm going to work on workspaces and keyboard shortcuts. Those skills will translate from C5 to C6.

UPDATE: I've just received an email from Chris Dobbs, member of the Steinberg North America support team, who told me he has no idea of the exact shipment date in the US but assumes it will likely be sometime "within the first two weeks of February." So, there you have it folks. Looks like by Valentine's Day we'll have a new "girlfriend" to play with.
