cubase Artist 8.5 trial

Im currently evaluating the cubase Artist 8.5 trial. I have a trial license till the 28th of Feb. Since Steinberg is working for a fix regarding the current VSTperformance/ Graphic problem is it possible for me to get an extension of the trial period after the next maintenance update? I use a lot of editing in MIDI drum editor and im experiencing audio stutter while doing some edits so i would like to see the software working after the fix before i eventually buy it. As such i dont need 30 days extension after the fix. 10 to 14 days would be fine.

Thanks for your support.



Any help from Steinberg staff please??
