Funny, I could swear that the Synchrosoft dongle used to be more prevalent, used with other products, and available as a generic dongle like the iLok is - i.e., without the Steinberg branding. I could be mistaken, but either way, it sure does look like it's a Steinberg-only contraption for now, doesn't it?
DOH - just found the press release - I guess that all ended in Dec. 2008:
http://www.syncrosoft.com/Dec._1_2008_A ... 78-67.html

However, you still can buy a dongle separately... I *think*?

I'd like it if they supported iLok too - then I could just have one dongle instead of two.
I don't know how much of Steiny's Cubase/Nuendo sales consist of current users (versus new buyers) but my guess it's actually the majority of potential buyers
Ditto! Over the years for me it's been 5 initial purchases and 13 upgrade purchases. After my first purchase of Cubase SX, I could have saved a LOT of trees by just downloading. FWIW, All the manuals and boxes from those early versions are LONG gone, most of them unread.

The strangest of all the upgrades was the Groove Agent 3 (or was it GA 2) - where they started selling the Full Version several months before the upgrade version was released. When I *finally* got my my upgrade, it was really just a full version with a different label on it - at least as far as I could tell. THAT was when I really started chomping at the bit for downloadable upgrades.

At this rate, I don't expect to see downloadable upgrades from Steiny until after cloud-based DAWs with and negative-latency and automatic talent-correction are the mainstay ;)

There's a relatively new concept (last 20 years) known as "just-in-time" inventory purchasing/replenishment, but this fiasco has neither been "in time" nor even close to being so

My UPS package has been stuck in Hodgkings, IL for 4 days because of the "weather" even though that's only about 30 miles away and for 3 of those 4 days it's been sunny and clear here. That can't even assure me that the package it not lost, nor can they give me an estimated delivery. Jeez.. :evil:

UPS is the absolute worst delivery service - I'd even take the US post office over UPS.

For that distance I'd be tempted to drive over and get it....

Are you anywhere near Downers Grove? Got some friends there.

Na - I'm in the actual city. Not worth the drive - I'm not that much in a hurry. Plus, UPS can't assure me that it's even where they say it is.

100% agreed. Even the Post Office will hold your package for you for a few days if they weren't able to deliver it to you. UPS, after 3 tries, sends it back... this has happened to em often since like most of you, I'm rarely home when they typically deliver in my area. I really need to have a package sent to my workplace when it's going to be shipped UPS

That those other 6 companies have to hoodwink their "fanbase" into an online purchase because you can't turn back?

With Steinberg you get a no obligation 30 day trial, with the ability to upgrade it "online" but for existing products they need to be ordered.


There are HUNDREDS (thousands) of software vendors that provide downloadable trial versions with online option to then go ahead and purchase.

Including, as of just yesterday... drumroll... Steinberg's Cubase! I'm sure the mods were laughing as they read this thread.
Sigh - I guess "Guest" will never read this. I always wanted to mention to him that even WINDOWS 7 is available for download...

I just checked out the Steinberg store and as far as I can tell the "download" option is still greyed out. Do you know when this will be available, or where?
