Frankly, I’m not at all taken with the idea of shelling out 150 Euro to “upgrade” from 5 to 6. C6 contains absolutely nothing that makes it a “new product” compared to the previous version. What I’d get are basically bugfixes. And I want those of course. Because I already paid for these features and I want them to work right without paying extra.
I would not be as upset with this boldfaced ripoff if the license to use Cubase was based on a subscription model. Because I wouldn’t mind paying, say, a monthly fee totalling the equivalence of 150 Euro divided up into two years, to secure that I can enjoy whatever enhancements and corrections that are pushed for each feature, at all times.
Please consider offering this optional service to customers who buy the product and use it every day. We don’t need all the launch drama and marketing hypes. We need a solid, functioning product and an easy upgrade path.
