this topic has probably been discussed before - I used the search function but could not come up with the exact solution to my question. If there’s already a topic, then my apologies, in that case, please post the link here and you can close my new topic. So here goes:
Cubase 9 has been released now, but I’m still “stuck” at Cubase 6.5 … I just missed the opportunity to upgrade to 7, 7.5, then 8, 8.5 in good time (so it’s kind of my own fault, yes). But Steinberg now wants 300 bucks (Euro not Dollar mind you) from 6.5 to 9 now… Sigh. So… the longer I keep “waiting”, the lesser the chance I can ever buy an update to Cubase again! 300 bucks is almost the price for a full sequencer software and I just don’t have that amount of cash for a mere and the only possible Cubase update which is to Cubase 9.
It’s a real pity that Steiberg does not offer step-by-step updates, the moment a new version comes around.
So my question is: Is there still a way to update step-by-step? How do other people handle this? Where can I still get a Cubase 7, 7.5 update… then when I bought it, a Cubase 8, and so on? Just with pure luck on Ebay or something? Any ideas?
If I wait any longer, I might as well buy a Cubase 10 full version instead of having the chance to update in small steps with a much fewer amount of money.
I’m sure there are many Cubase users with exactly the same “problem” who don’t want to swallow the bitter pill, so it’s an important question and interesting topic.
Thanks for your reply, and sorry if it indeed has been discussed before. A link to that topic would be great in this case.
