I know Cubasis and Nuendo have gone on sale but I think many are waiting for HALion and Cubase dsicounts- do we have to wait for Christmas? I thought there would be a sale in July...go!

I believe the offer is for updates only - not up"grades".

Thanks, yes it's an Update I want for my copy of Elements (from 9 to 9.5) . I'm already at Pro 9.5. The code doesn't work for Elements. Ah well, never mind. Thanks for posting anyway.

This again. Why don’t they advertise these offers on their main page (or the newsletter) ? Do they actually want to sell their updates?
I’m looking for the upgrade, is that offer out too?

I haven't seen either the update or upgrade offer but they don't usually run at the same time.

From what Ive heard, the upgrade offers take place twice a year they were last available in December. I want to upgrade Elements to Artist as well and want to buy a full version of Halion Sonic 3. Hope they come by soon, in the meantime, I am loving Komplete 11 and learning more about how to use it. It's a monster.

I'm afraid you heard wrong. New versions of Cubase come out at the end of the year (last year November, previously December), there are no upgrade offers at that time.

For the last few years upgrade offers for Cubase have been available in the late summer, July/August.

Halion maybe, I don’t remember a sale around the release of Cubase 9.5 but maybe.

You can already crossgrade Kontakt/Komplete to HALion 6 for the same price as a full version of HALion Sonic 3. HALion 6 includes HALion Sonic 3. Not a special offer, but better value I think, from your perspective.

Great deal, $100 off full price, but more than I want to spend right now. Thanks for the idea.

Not sure what you mean by Halion Sonic 3 EE?

There is no Halion Sonic 3 EE and Halion Sonic 3 SE is free.

...I can't follow that link "due to my geographical location".

Nevertheless, Educational editions of Cubase are exactly the same as full versions BUT you need proof of eligibility to acquire the license and come upgrade time they stop being "EE" versions and you're back onto full price versions (there's no educational upgrade discount scheme).

If you can buy the "EE" version without proving you're eligible you may find you need to prove eligibility to Steinberg after you've paid the merchant. There have been people on the forum before who've bought "EE" licenses from thirds parties and run into difficulties. This is not to say that you will just to let you know. If you're buying from a reputable seller and you are eligible then I'm sure it's a great saving.

My wife is the director of operations at a local university and has an .edu email address. I think this should be sufficient, yes?

The upgrade sale is on the moment. Enter the code UPGRADE18 into the relevant box when purchasing an upgrade for a 40% discount on an upgrade.

An upgrade means going from Elements or Artist to Pro or from Artist to Pro.

Thank YOU!!! Done! Just bought Artist. I can wait for HALion, unless the upgrade applies from SE to HALion 3 Sonic, which I dont think it does.

Halion was discounted 50% for Valentine's day in February this year (more exactly Feb 14 - 19, I still have the mail in my mailbox).
The SE version is _not_ valid for upgrades.

You should subscribe to the Steinberg newsletter to your mailbox to not miss offers like this, you can activate that in your MySteinberg account.

thank you , I am subscribed now. But I thought I was before, but was not notified about the upgrade sale. I learned about it here. If Halion goes on sale, would someone please mention it here? Or, is there another way to find out?
