I must be missing something here… but it’s been over 48 hours since I purchased a £171.00 upgrade from Cubase 9 to Cubase 10.5 - and STILL I wait, for a download link.
I’m aware of the fact that I can download 10.5 with the Steinberg Download Assistant - however I purchased an upgrade - and therefore do not require the full 22GB file. On top of that, I want my Cubase 9 to be physically replaced/updated to 10.5 during the installation. Downloading 10.5 from the Steinberg Download Assistant will separately create Cubase 10.5, leaving Cubase 9 unwanted on my system.
I’d understand having to do this if I was after an older version, but I’ll say it again, I really must be missing something, because I frown at paying £171.00, and still needing a “download assistant” for the latest version of Cubase
I have registered my Cubase 10.5 in the MySteinberg tab under My Products, where it states: “Activation status:Product activated on 28/08/2020”. But sadly for almost three days now, there are no download buttons here. Prior to purchasing my upgrade, I had download buttons for Cubase 9 Mac/Windows in this very location. They’ve taken my money (no problems at all there), and replaced these Cubase 9 download buttons with… well… nothing.
This entire experience and lack of support will see me stretch this version of Cubase out for as long as possible. I won’t be upgrading again until I have to and hopefully that day never comes.
