thanks for the info!
as we are somewhere in the 1990’s; i can clearly state that I DO NOT NEED AND WILL NEVER USE (so would NEVER download):
Disk 2: Video Tutorials i’m a cubase user since v4 (2006) … no, thanks!
Disk 3: HALion ‘Sonic’ Orchestra VST Sound Instrument set i’m a licensed user of EWQL Orchestra libs and many other ones, i really don’t need any of these, thanks!
Disk 4: The Grand 3 SE one of the best sounding straight out of the box acoustic piano out there is probably the Alicia’s Keys for Kontakt, why should i bother to install this one ???!
Disk 5+6: HALion Sonic v1.5 what is this ??? i’m skilled enough to play my own keyboard and bass parts and record my own guitar etc… why should i install (swallow) this?
if SB was smart enough, they could have increased the sales, by splitting up that USELESS CONTENT in several download parts, instead of hijacking us , making us wait to appear the hard copies in local stores and finally making us swallow to have that useless content that most of us will never install and use!!
and if ONLY the "DISK 1: Cubase 6 installation " was available as downloadable purchase/upgrade, i could BUY IT TODAY, and of course not only I, but probably HUNDREDS of other users out there…
and yes, all what that poor Chris can say to us here (that is understandable, because he is just a forum moderator and far not senior / marketing manager from SB) is:
“Other companies do provide downloadable versions of their softwhare, but SB does not” and then just cowardly close the forum topic … so , we, existing customers, willing to pay customers have our mouths shut and force to agree to SB’s marketing policy of the 1990’s mentality.
there should be a customers mass scale UPRISE against all this!!!
