Just burn some DVD’s with the upgrade including licens number. Put a nice Christmas card in the case, and wrap some paper around it. After all, if you want to give Cubase 7.5 away as a Christmas gift, I don’t think people will mind having a burned DVD with it. It’s the content on the DVD’s that counts… yeah man
Johnstaf said it… put it on a usb dongle. Much software comes like this these days.
I’m all good with downloads. And if you absolutely have to kill some trees then go out of your way to get the unwrapper a nice experience by putting it on a dvd and maybe going for a printed carton or something like that
Gave my friend two purchased and downloaded steinberg synths a while back as a gift, i don’t think he minded too much not getting the box… (And he was really pleased )
I seem to recall the 6.5 upgrade being faaaaaar more expensive… (I only had elements at the time so didn’t get to pay for that but still…)
To some this is apparently Cubase 8 with a knockdown price of only an upgrade. (glass half empty, glass half full brigades, join what you feel you should).
Where is the written rule that the whole or point 5 version numbers mean jack anyway?
I like the bugs. They keep timewasters occupied posting here telling Steinberg how to do it instead of effing up the studio telling the musicians how to play. And everything that needs to work, works.
Lighten up boys.
Q: But I went to the checkout, coming from 6.5, and it gives me the ‘boxed’ version option, which I selected. Is this not the case? Does this mean I will get the box version of C7 and then need to download C7.5? …or is it all a download?
Bleach is still used in some countries, but for the last couple of decades most European countries use enzymes for recycling, those have no ecological side issues, and gives you a better product anyway, less acidity issues and longer lifetime. Bleach and other iffy chemicals are actually more common in the manufacture of new white paper than recycled.
The recycled paper packaging that is used by Steinberg, Sennheiser and a few others is actually of a better quality than a new one because of the higher variability of the fibre content.
