Steinberg announced a new upgrade program for Cubase LE, a new e-store for US upgrades, and special upgrade incentives for Yamaha customers. People who currently own or purchase hardware products bundled with Cubase LE or Cubasis can upgrade to the more powerful Cubase SL or SX (see pricing below).
Customers should visit the dealer where they purchased the hardware product and buy a special Cubase LE to SL or LE to SX upgrade package. Customers who bought a qualifying hardware product from a non-authorized Steinberg dealer can purchase these same Cubase LE upgrades at www.steinbergupgrades.com.
Customers who purchase Yamaha Studio Connections-compatible hardware products (including the Motif ES, Motif ES Rack, i88x, 01x, 01V96, 02R96, SPX2000) between June 15 and Sept 30, 2005, qualify for the same special upgrade packages as Cubase LE customers. By visiting their dealer (or purchasing the upgrade along with their hardware), these customers can save $50 on Cubase SL or $100 on Cubase SX.
In addition, Steinberg US has developed a secure e-store for all Cubase, Nuendo, and VST-application upgrades that require database verification. This software can be upgraded by US customers at www.steinbergupgrades.com using a streamlined automated process that will verify registration, calculate the price, and ship the upgrade directly to the customer.
The upgrade pricing for Cubase LE to SL is $249 (a savings of $50), and Cubase LE to SX is $499 (a savings of $100). For more information about Steinberg, visit www.steinberg.net.
