Cubase Pro 9 Demo?

Where can I download a demo or trial?

What’s Steinberg’s refunds policy if I buy it and don’t like it?

No trial yet…


What is their usual turn around time on a demo after an initial release? $200 for C8>9 seemed a bit steep and I’d like to try before I buy.

FWIW, a quick search on the Forum showed these historical trial release dates (and in each case the version was released at the beginning of December the previous year):

8.5: Trial released 6th Jan 2016
8.0: Trial released 7th April 2015
7.5: Trial released 26th Feb 2014
7.0: Trial released 28th Feb 2013

So it’s a bit variable but not before the first week of January and sometimes a whole lot later.
