Decided To Go For Cubase 7

Postby jamusic » Sat Jun 22, 2013 12:07 am

Ok, so I made the decision, bit the bullet and purchased Cubase last night.

I'm quite looking forward to it, :D and a shipping note & tracking number have been emailed to me.

So I'm reviewing all the 'goodies' that will arrive next week, and I see that there will be a reduced version of HALion Sonic called 'SE'.

I looked for the update price, should I one day decide to go for it, but it doesn't actually show an upgrade from 'Sonic SE' per se.

It has 'unlock from trial version', and others including full version.

So my question simply is:


Would I have to pay full price to get it, or is there some reduced upgrade price from the HALion Sonic SE that comes with this purchase?

Thank you,

James

Unfortunately, there is no way to upgrade from HALion Sonic SE. Presumably, this is because every version of Cubase (including the LE versions bundled with hardware) have the HALion Sonic SE built in.
Asus R500A-RS52, Windows 8, 2.6gHz i5 -3230M, 6GB RAM,

Cubase Artist 7.0.6, Wavelab Elements 7, Focusrite Scarlett 8i6, The Grand 3, Melodyne Essential, Superior Drummer, EZDrummer and Pop! EZX, Samson CO1, Yamaha P-35, Mackie MR5mk2 monitors, and more....

Aloha j,

I got Halion Sonic as an upgrade for $99.00 because I previously
own a now discontinued Steinberg product called: 'Halion Player'.

But as Bane posted I don't think there is another way.

FYI & IMHO
While HASE is a fine addition with Cubase, Halion Sonic is even more so.
Many more sounds/loops and much deeper (if you need it) editing.
And it also works as stand-alone.

HTH (hope this helps)

Ok, thanks Buds.

But curteye, I'd like to ask:

You're talking about HALion Sonic [$249.99] and not the bigger HALion 4 [$349.99], right??

See if you can get HAL4 under an EDU license.

I'm not sure how I would do that. I don't believe I would qualify.
Do you know something that maybe I should know by now?

Well there's kinda a discount for Cubase owners. The Absolute VST Collection includes Halion Sonic and a bunch of other stuff, and Cubase 6.5/7 owners can get the whole bundle for the same price as a standalone copy of Halion Sonic would be at full retail.

So you'd end up spending the same amount, but would actually get more for your money.

I was kind of surprised to see there wasn't a Cubase owner's upgrade price just for Halion Sonic.

If you purchase halion sonic you could always upgrade to halion 4 if you feel the need for the deeply integrated sampler functions ;)

There is no upgrade path from the included HALion Sonic SE to the full HALion Sonic.

There is, however, a discount for the permanent activation of the HALion Sonic trial version (included with your Cubase 7 purchase).

From the Steinberg online shop ...

I want the HALion Sonic Full Version - USD 249.99

Activation Code for the permanent activation of your trial version - USD 199.99

Right. I thoroughly looked that over but wasn't quite sure that the 'SE' version = the 'trial' version.

I generally assumed so, but wasn't totally sure.

Thanks.

So, pardoning my ignorance, is one THE upgrade to the other? ie: 'H Sonic SE' to 'H 4'?

I remember reading that Helge said that the sounds are completely different among the 2.

So I'm not totally clear that they might be 2 completely separate beasts or not.

If you know the sounds of HALion, you will not want HALSonic which is why I suggest you think about becoming a student.

jamusic, I think you might still be a bit confused. Very understandable.

HALion Sonic SE = Light version which is a native part of Cubase

HALion Sonic (full version) = The beefed up version of what is included in Cubase. You will have a trial version (30 days, I believe) of this included with Cubase 7. My earlier post regarding the discount was referring to this. This is a separate license from Cubase.

HALion 4 = The big daddy of them all

Yes - aware that the licenses are separate.

So then do I have the option of an upgrade path to either Hal Sonic Full version or Hal 4?

Are they indeed different, as Helge seemed to indicate? Or is step 1 Sonic SE [already included], step 2 Sonic Full, step 3 Hal 4?

I'm thinking that signing up to be a student somewhere would most likely cost more in the long run than just paying the upgrade prices.

Besides, I kind of think that that would be the wrong thing to do unless I was actually going to enroll for classes somewhere.

sorry to jump on the thread ,just to clear your confusion ..
1 Halion SE comes with Cubase
2 Halion sonic is the full version which you have to purchase in full ( no upgrade price from halion SE ) .
3 Halion 4 is the same sound engine as halion sonic but it's also a sampler as well as a synth so if you decided you wanted the sampler functions you can then upgrade from Halion sonic to halion 4 for which there is an upgrade price ;)

Oh hey artdude. I was just on their looking through my account, but saw nothing.

I did a course a few months ago.

Can you give just a bit more info and maybe even a link to said discounts, as I'm still registered their?

The discount would be the same as for what steinberg offers regardless of where you are enrolled.

The policy has always been that so long as you are enrolled in an accredited course of study, regardless of subject that you are eligible for a discount.

My guess is the reason would be that most high end software would be used by people already employed in the industry, so it allows novice users and curious folk to get on board at a very reasonable price.

The advantage of paying full price however is being able to get it immediately, as there is no waiting time for downloadable products.

Of course there are cheaper versions as well such as Artist and Elements, which to my understanding support full 192Khz audio so upgrading to a higher version whether EDU or not would be both painless as well as cost effective to boot.

Thanks artdude.

...Of course there are cheaper versions as well such as Artist and Elements...

I've decided to go with the full version of Cubase 7 & have in fact purchased it a few days ago now.

Anytime I've looked into Educational versions, they've obviously wanted to see some sort of proof in all fairness to others, but I don't see that anywhere in my account.

I don't mind paying the full prices for things that I believe in & wish to support.

I'm ok with that.

It would seem the best deal path would be:

Absolute VST Instrument Collection & then up to Halion 4 for $99.00 after that.

As said above, that gives much more bang for the buck instead of just upping to Halion Sonic alone first from 'SE' - and then up to Hal 4.
