When can I expect the upgrade version of Cubase 6 to be available from US online stores?
Never … you can only get upgrade version through Steinberg’s on-line shop.
NOTE: I was looking at steinbergs online shop for WEEKS to order the Upgrade from Cubase 5 and have it delivered to my home in USA…
IT NEVER SHOWED UP !
Seems that Steinberg website detected that I was on vacation outside of the USA and the Upgrade product never even appeared on the web page
All that waiting for nothing
So, if you are delivering to the USA then you also need to order from a computer inside the USA. I discovered that when I forgot to turn off my work vpn and connected to steinberg - IT WAS AVAILABLE !
Thanks to all for your replies. I live in Panama City, Panama and usually order my stuff from US online stores using a freight forwarder in Miami or buy things when I take a trip to the US.
Two Emails to email@example.com regarding the upgrade to Cubase 6 in Panama were not answered. I really want to upgrade but don’t know how to resolve this. Needless to say that I am disappointed with Steinberg’s customer service. If anyone has a solution, I’d appreciate your comment.
You MUST use a VPN to see the item on their site.
2 if you know someone in a supported country ( or usa) simply order with their pc using any remote desktop program. Pm me if you need to use mine.
I had to do the same from philippines.
Thanks savadious, that worked. Actually I just asked a friend in Switzerland and he was able to place the order for me. Finally: Issue resolved. Your help is appreciated savadious!
Now it’s avaliable at Audiomidi:
Honestly - even thou I ordered and have been using Cubase 6 for weeks - I still do not have my DVD’s or box… Shipping to this part of the world can be a gamble.
What others can do who live in remote parts of the world - or have a studio in the middle of a jungle (I did this also) is:
- Ship Cubase 6 upgrade to friends in a supported country.
- The friends open the box and give you the registration key to add to your USB device (my dad was my volunteer)
- There are 6 DVD’s… fortunately you only need 1 for Cubase 6 (the rest are GREAT things like halion, VST’s etc)
- I used the remote desktop application built into windows 7 ultimate to get it from their DVD drive.
- Now you are up and running while waiting for the box to arrive.
Cubase 6 was in my hands hours after they got it - if not for that contact person I would still be waiting for my order that was placed over a month ago
