However, I could share this, from our Yamaha Canada rep around town.... message rec'd yesterday
  • Our first shipment of Cubase 6 is in transit from Germany, and expected to arrive in our Toronto warehouse by the end of the week. There are always some unpredictable factors with international shipping, so I can’t promise anything, but if you’re an early adopter thinking about upgrading, you might not want to make any big plans for this coming weekend. :) Your favourite Steinberg dealer should hopefully have pricing set up in their system by now, and I’ll make an announcement on the Steinbergcanada.ca website as soon as the stock arrives.
So I would think the good old USA might be close to receiving too! Hope so for all of us.

Yeah, nothing for the US yet--not till early this week according to asknet. Oh wait, that's today. So we're looking mid- to late week, at best.

Really classy how we got charged well before the product shipped. That's unprecedented for me.

At least you know you are not dealing with some fly-by-nighter.

Think about paypal for a second, they keep everyone's money who deal with them.

I'm not really a fan of the way SB releases software...

Here in Australia, N5 took 2 months to arrive here after release, and pricing was far from US or EU parity.

Then yesterday I get an email from a local store saying not to expect C6 until mid feb, and no pricing info is available yet.

To me, there is no excuse what so ever for not having world wide pricing available at the same time.

There is no excuse for the long delays in shipping to Australia. There should be no difference between shipping from EU to US and EU to Australia.

And of course, there is no reason in this day and age that UPDATES cannot be distributed digitally (unless I am missing something due to EU laws etc)

I realise that setting up the systems for digital delivery can be time consuming, but one would hope this is the last major version of a SB product that doesn't have digital delivery in place world wide for all upgrades.

Cheers! Brendan.

Remember that not so long ago you had to give your dongle number to the store before you even got an auth code.

Frankly the whole idea of printing up boxes and pages with authorization numbers and printing CDs - and then putting them on an transatlantic airplane - is just crazy in this day in age. There aren't even manuals in the boxes. Surely they could be partnering with some media company to handle printing and distribution in the US and someone in Asia... I'm sure that the Keyfax partnership in the US disolved in a less-than-ideal fashion, and perhaps Steinberg was a little spooked about a renewing any decentralized partnerships. I'm no happier nor less with Steinberg product distribution via KeyFax then than I am now.

I've licensed plenty of software from Izotope, ToonTrack, Melodyne, 1KMedia, Native Instruments and Ableton - and have been MUCH happier with electronic delivery of the initial product and with the upgrades. Steinberg's obviously always been afraid of electronic delivery :roll: - but the time to join the future came quite a while ago...

Maybe it is not known or poorly understood the reasons why things are as they are in relation to software distribution.

Firstly, you have an enduring partnership with Yamaha Corp. that is still going strong and means for most countries, that is the primary support channel.

Secondly, there are many European countries that are able to purchase directly from Asknet, this is out of Steinbergs' control, from which countries users are able to purchase from directly.

Third, whatever distribution channel is available in the United States it is not necessarily at the click of Steinbergs' finger, since even online music stores have to have some presence in the EU in order to be able to acquire stock for other countries including Britain for example, as well as the US and Canada.

This idea that a simple fix would allow immediate download and upgrading of any given software is pure conjecture and not based in fact.

Electronic delivery of software worldwide has become a turnkey operation. And Steinberg does it today (as is evidenced by the email I received to confirm my purchase, which included information for people who ordered products with electronic fulfillment.) There is notthing to it. They have the tech today to deliver licenses electronically. And the distribution of bits is trivial. If you can't do it yourself, there are dozens of companies that will manage it for you, including managing the origin servers and CDNs.

And let's not forget that the license delivered to your eLicenser is the only thing that needs protecting (and this is already done electronically). There is nothing secure about a DVD. In fact, worldwide physical box distribution is probably an order of magnitude harder.
