Are there ever sales on Cubase?

Post by ishraqiyun77 » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:30 pm

Just out of curiosity, are there really ever sales on Cubase? I am looking at the Competitive Crossgrade at Sweetwater:

What little research I did looks like any sales are usually attached to upgrade discounts whether it is between releases, or between version (e.g. Artist to Pro).

Figure if I can hold out a few months to save a few bucks, why not? Not planning on getting back to writing music until end of the year anyway.

I don't remember if Steinberg ever did a Cubase sale that wasn't exclusive to some kind of upgrade.

Sales on Cubase "tier" upgrades (like going from Elements to Pro) are somewhat common.

Sales on Cubase version upgrades (like going from Pro 8 to Pro 9.5) are a lot rarer.

Crossgrades from other DAWs went on sale a few months ago because another DAW company had been shut down.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc

I don't think I've ever seen a crossgrade sale, other the one that Romantique TP alludes to above.

The other sales tend to come along in the summer (last year, FWIW, they were in June/July for going up from an earlier version (eg: 8 to 9) and in August for upgrading your version (eg: Elements to Artist).

There are also occasionally email promotions, indeed this week I received an invite to update from Pro 7 or 8 to 9.5 with a 15% discount.....bizarre marketing as I already have 9.5 Pro but there you go. It's worth being on the marketing email list anyway.

how do i subscribe to the marketing email list? I'm currently pondering over the 8.5 to 9.5 upgrade and 15% discount would clinch the deal for me. I have gone into "My Steinberg" and i can only see the news letter subscription to which I'm all ready subscribed too.

cheers

That's the mailing list he mentioned.
