I missed out by 15 days
So did I, hence the little rant.
I bought mine on Oct 21st 2012... damn it!
Just a suggestion ...
Send an e-mail to whoever you bought it from. Be polite/respectful. I can't remember if it was 4 to 5 or 5 to 6, but I missed by two days, but was given the grace period by the people I bought it from.
I've also been told no on other things. Can't hurt to try. Works better if you are nice. And don't work yourself into a tizzy if they say no.

Hermode intonation seems interesting and is something I'd like to learn more about as far as it making any noticeable difference. Also excited to try the VST Connect thing for collaborating with vocalists.
The inclusion of Voxengo CurveEQ seems a little out of left field. Makes me wonder if Voxengo has been working with Steinberg on any stock plug-in stuff.

Nice catch! An 1176 - if it's anything like Yamaha's other plugs it will sound great but be very pricey.

Sweet, thanks for the info! I'm getting seriously horny for this update!

But the current upgrade prices appear to discount the $50 paid for the 6.5 upgrade, if I'm reading this correctly.
I bought 6.5 when it came out, and if they discount that off the 6->7 upgrade, then I'm happy with that. I've been able to use PadPro and the rest of it all this time.
I'm I'm mistaken about this, of course, I'll be p*ssed.
Yeah. And I see the point that they added synths, but still, it just wasn't that big an update, and with 7 just 6 months away, with those synths folded in, with tons of exciting new features - and they never charged for a .5 upgrade before! IIRC.
Anyway, I know that's flogging a dead horse. Cubase 7! Hope it doesn't suck!!
So to be clear: is 6.5 no longer a paid update? i.e., if I find and buy a boxed update from 5 to v6.0, can I download the 6.5 update, or would I have to pay (in which case I'd obviously just wait for 7 to be released)?

My situation: On 10/24 I bought the boxed Cubase 6 update for Cubase 4 and 5 users.
On 10/29 I updated my Cubase 5 license to Cubase 6. In the process, it was automatically upgraded to 6.5 per the grace period policy at the time. Steinberg then pointed me to a download to get 6.5.
So, right now my license key says I have a Cubase 6.5 license and I'm running Cubase 6.5 on my machine. According to the current info regarding Cubase 7 grace period, I'll be able to update to Cubase 7 for free once it is available on 12/5 following the steps they mention on their site.
