Hi gang, Since Steinberg is having a sale I would like to upgrade to Artist 11. I would have to wait for them to ship the elicenser before I can install it. What is everyone’s experience with shipping times on those in recent months? Is there a huge delay with overseas shipping with covid junk? Or is there a place in the US I can get the elicenser and then download Artist? I checked the normal music sites and didn’t see anything available. Thanks!
You are correct. I couldn’t find it before.
You don’t have to buy any elicenser dongle if you are willing to wait a few months…
It won’t be needed on CB12 early next year.
But you can (should) still take benefit of the current sale on CB11 since it will include a free update to CB12 when released.
I don’t think Cubase 12’s release date has been specified that accurately. Dorico 4 will be released early next year, with Cubase sometime later.
The upside of buying a dongle and activating now is retaining a not-for-sale copy of Cubase 11 which you can use with the dongle even after updating to 12. And being able to use it now, instead of sometime next year.
yeah i wanted to get artist now while it is on sale and then i can upgrade to 12 for free sometime next year. i did find a dongle on guitar center and it is on the way. thanks for the help everyone!
I’m already looking forward to Christmas, but I understand that on holidays it takes much longer for all the goods to be delivered. You really need to buy now.
