Welcome rattleshock. Looks like you're a fellow Canadian.
I did the same thing earlier this summer - July 14.
I switched from Sonar X2a & Studio One to Cubase.
I bought 6.5 within the grace period to Cubase 7.0 right away and it included the full version of HALion 4 which gave me a free upgrade to HALion 5 also within it's own grace period.
A very pleasant surprise that I didn't even know was included until I opened the box.
Anyway, hope you enjoy it.
I'm adding a link here that's very helpful, in case you haven't seen it yet.
