Grace Period Update to Nuendo 8

Customers activating an older version of Nuendo (from version 5), whereas a newer version is already available, receive from Steinberg once (!) a so-called free Grace Period update to activate the current version available to that time. This offer is commonly valid for full versions, education versions, updates and upgrades.

If a newer version is released shortly after activation (usually within a six-week period), you may be entitled to the Grace Period update irrelevant of the current version having been granted at the time of activation.

Please note: Nuendo is activated as soon as you have entered your activation code within the eLicenser Control Center (eLCC). Please note that the date of activation is the determining factor — not the date of purchase or the registration date.
