After purchasing or already owning any of the ABSOLUTE VST INSTRUMENT COLLECTION individual instrument licenses or upgrading Padshop version (also included in Cubase 6.5 and Cubase Artist 6.5) to the Padshop Pro license, then is there another upgrade path option from Padshop + Zero Gravity Instrument Set (Upgrade Bundle) or the Padshop (Basic Upgrade) Pro Full Version to the ABSOLUTE VST INSTRUMENT COLLECTION since the ABSOLUTE VST INSTRUMENT COLLECTION already includes the Padshop Pro license and all the other ABSOLUTE VST INSTRUMENT COLLECTION licenses, instead of the only other upgrade option being the Upgrade for Cubase customers Cubase 6.5 or Cubase Artist 6.5 required to the full ABSOLUTE VST INSTRUMENT COLLECTION licenses? Since the only upgrade options are are upgrade from padshop basic to Pro for 9.00 or upgrade from padshop basic+zerogravity to Pro for only 39.00, why isn't Padshop Pro included with Cubase 6.5 instead of only Padshop basic LE as an incentive to upgrade to Cubase 6.5? For example, Apple includes the full EXS24 Sampler and not a basic dumbed down LE version of the EXS24 Sampler with Logic Pro. So there is no reluctancy whether there is an incentive or not for long time Logic Pro users to upgrade Logic Pro even with the low frequency of Logic Pro updates Apple releases. This is like Steinberg is saying if you've bought Cubase from us in the past, you can order an upgrade to Cubase 6.5 now for $199, but if you've bought Cubase from us in the past, a full Padshop Pro license will cost you another $9 or $39. thanks.
