Steinberg is elated to release free trial versions for its two synths, Padshop Pro and Retrologue. Both trials come with the same functionality as the full versions and can be used for 30 days.

Padshop Pro is the next step in the evolution of Steinberg’s acclaimed granular synthesizer Padshop and offers exciting new features for experimental sound design. The pro version comes with a drag and drop sample import function, a 3-band parametric EQ, a high-quality algorithmic reverb and 50 new presets.

Retrologue is an exceptional virtual analog synth that spices up your production with first-class analog purity. Highlights of Retrologue include two cutting multi-oscillators, an earth-shattering sub- and noise-oscillator, twelve quality filter types and a high-class FX section.

Both synths feature full VST and AU support and come with a variety of production-ready presets that will expand your creativity.

PsP Trial Installed. Now bought Full Ver. Need I re-install

Postby underwatersunlight » Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:39 pm

Hello there,
I have Padshop Pro Trial running, remaining time ca. 26 days.
Today I bought Padshop as well as Padshop Pro Upgrade in quick succession.
The licenses for "Padshop" and "Padshop Pro Extension" were successfully downloaded to my USB-eLicenser.

Need I uninstall the trial version of PsP and then install the PsP full version installer ? Or will the trial version detect my full license on my USB eLicenser and adapt accordingly, turning into a full version? What needs to be done ?

(Btw, I use Win 7 64 on a PC.)

Do I need to reinstall the full PsP after the trial expires

Please, Matthias or any other Steinberg official or even a Padshop Pro user,
could someone help me with this question ? I have no idea now as to what to do when the trial period is over...

I expect you don't have to do anything. If you have a padshop pro full license on your dongle, it'll work just fine, no need to reinstall padshop. It's exactly the same program, just the license changes which the eLCC takes care of.
Unless the trial version doesn't have the same functionality, but if I am to believe the OP they're identical.
Software: Steinberg Cubase Artist 6.5.5 64-bit.
Hardware: HP elitebook 8530b with W7 Home 64-bit
Mackie Onyx 1620i - Steinberg Midex 8 - Steinberg CC121.
Analog: Alesis M1 - Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL - Studio Projects C3 - AKG K612Pro
Instruments: Yamaha DTX750k - Yamaha MO-6 - Waldorf Blofeld - Korg Wavedrum WDX.
3rd party plugins: Native Instruments Prism - Rob Papen Distort - Rob Papen Delay

My humble contributions to what could be considered music.

Hi Matthias, I have an inquietude, I downloaded the Padshop pro trial, and I see 3 folder in the UI: User, Padshop and Padshop Pro, but I understood that the Padshop pro comes with Zero Gravity expansion and I don't see a folder with that name. The questions are:

1.- Does include the trial version; the Zero Gravity sounds?,
2.- when I buy the Padshop Pro it will included Zero Gravity built-in or is an different installer?, or
3.- Do I need to buy first Padshop and after upgrade to the bundle Padshop pro+Zero Gravity.

Thanks for your response,
