Actually there is one version of Cubase, and that is Cubase Pro. Cubase Artist and Cubase Elements are cut down versions of the program...so that would NOT stand up in court of law. Further they have officially stated it in their forums that the offer is from versions of Cubase Full (the term Pro was added to later versions 8 forward).

Additionally, outside of the sale, there is NO crossgrade path from Elements or Artist, so why would they suddenly include it now? They don't.

Dream, wish, evoke, sue, or even pray to your god but trust that nothing outside of Cubase FULL will allow that crossgrade to work.
Wow, okay. I still stand by my statement that it is not clear on the website or store. But you know, nevermind. It is only clear if you have owned Cubase for years.

I agree. It is not exactly clear if you are new to Cubase...how hard would it be to say "Elements and Artist excluded"?

And I was just trying to be funny. To my knowledge there would be nothing to stop a person from buying the upgrade and finding out the hard way. I have not purchased yet so I do not know if they require you to actually log in to verify proper ownership of a crossgrade product.

I've bought crossgrades before from them. They send you an email and state it must be reviewed. A day or so later you get an approval email. I'm sure they check whatever you send in manually.

dzilizzi: you might want to call them and talk to them about this - if you get lucky, they'll acknowledge your argument; maybe allow/authorize a Nuendo upgrade purchase for you w/a code or maybe manually -

If there is indeed a clarity issue on their part, it behooves them to fix it asap - you're doing them a favor pointing that out and could be rewarded for that!

I think that this upgrade sale is about Steinberg dumping unsold licenses of N8 as they have likely scaled down dev and support for N8 - as they race to get N10 to market. They could likely also use the cash and new users that will help put N10 through it's paces - they especially may *want* to see more amateur/small house users (more Nuendo users in general - it could be purely about numbers) use its video side. Remember that Vegas, as an example, has an iffy future - Magix bought that and Soundforge and Acid - where dev and support actually goes from here is anybody's guess. We *hope* obviously that all that continues - but is Magix really interested in supporting (2) independent platforms?

So maybe Nuendo will function as the new 'Vegas' for users who have the bucks and the wherewithal - Vegas was never cheap to begin with; so maybe there's some parity there.

Speaking of parity, it looks like with N10 especially: Cubase users will be able to comfortably transition from C to N - he or she simply gets more tools & capabilities. Obviously not everyone needs all the extra - but speaking for myself: some of it is nice to have.

So no notable St. Patrick's Day sales?...

... or are they waiting until (more) people are drunk?

Probably hoping more drunk people won't realize the deals aren't so great?

I found out they know this is an issue because a number of people brought it up in their forum. I'm afraid to say much over there, I hear you get blocked if they don't like your comments. LOL!

But really, I own Pro, so I'd have to buy elements and another elicenser so it wouldn't look like my account. Otherwise, they would just upgrade my Pro version.

"As our way of saying “Thank You”, when you register your UM2 at behringer.com, we’ll reward you with a complimentary download code for the full version of Tracktion."

There's a sale on Behringer UM2 for $30 at Proaudiostar, so I thought that could be a cheaper way to upgrade to Waveform 10 ($69 upgrade fee). However it apparently comes with "Waveform OEM": "A full version DAW that’s FREE with the purchase of many digital products from Behringer, Mackie, and ROLI! Unlike typical ‘Lite’ versions, we do not impose any restrictions"

Interesting!

That's part of the reason why I suggested calling them and talking to an actual person - they may just give you the shove; or they may help you out.

When I did a little reading in their forum, I discovered that one of the things that Steinberg was encouraging N8 users to do was to upgrade their current copies of Cubase to N8, resulting in then having (2) full licenses of N8 - apparently: it may be standard practice for N8 users to also have a copy of Cubase pro in order to negate any migration issues when getting cubase files - this strongly suggests that Steinberg is pushing for parity between the Cubase Pro feature set and especially what will be in N10.

So: what you actually want to do dzilizzi, is exactly what Steinberg is encouraging their Nuendo user base to do with their Cubase license: convert it into a second Nuendo license because they think that if you have Nuendo 10, you won't need Cubase - it's all in N10.
