I am set on buying CuBase but what if I were to buy the newest version one week before the next update? Would I have to pay for that update again or is there something like a limited protection that allows free updates?
Usually if it is close to the release then you get the update for free
Hi and welcome to the forum,
Steinberg offers so called Grace Period, so you will get the update to the latest version for free. In the last years the Grace Period applied around 2 month before the release. So if you buy Cubase a week before the release, you are in the very safe area.
