Just got off the phone to Yamaha.
They’re telling me we will be able to buy C6 “end of February”. I say: “so you’re commencing your launch on the 16th of Feb but you still won’t be able to buy it. Is that correct?” They say: “end of February”, “that’s all I know, darl”.
‘Darl’? Yep, that’s professional customer service in Australia for ya. I think she got a ‘sweety’ in there too. Gold. No wonder internationals still think there’s Kangaroos hopping down Swanston St. What a top sheila.
So anyway, you might want to make that 5-6 weeks before we can buy C6 in Australia. I wouldn’t be rushing out to their launch nights, thinking you’ll finally be able to buy it on the night. You might wind up frustrated and dissapointed.
Any Yam reps want to have a go at explaining why we have to wait two months after the rest of the world? I thought there was a pretty strong Cubase user base in Oz? And Chris B asserted “shipping immediately”. What’s with the two month delay?
I can feel a tanty coming on. Better have a nice cup of tea and a lie down.
