So, the Germans are known for being systematic and pretty logical, right?

Ok, here's the thing. ED has just started doing Music Technology A Level. The high school has a bunch of machines running Cubase 4 (digital audio workstation software). Now, I happen to have my own legal copy of Cubase SX2 (two versions behind Cubase 4). As she's using Cubase 4 at school I thought I'd look into the possibility of upgrading my version. In the past Steinberg have always provided an upgrade path. A little while ago they ditched all their national distributors and decided to sell their products across the EU by themselves. Fine. I go to their web site and look at the section dealing with educational pricing. Seems Cubase 4 has been superseded by Cubase 5. I find the educational price list and I can get Cubase 5 at a 50% discount for €299. Hmm, then an upgrade should be pretty reasonable thinks I but I can't find upgrade prices on that list.

So I email Steinberg: "What's the educational price for a Cubase SX2 to Cubase 5 upgrade please"

Steinberg: "Unfortunatly we don´t offer reduced prices for educational versions. The retail price for the update from Cubase SX 2 to Cubase 5 is £361.0 (or €413)."

Me: "Thank you for your email. So, from looking at your order form for educational products it seems it would be cheaper for me just to buy the educational version of the full Cubase 5 at €299 than upgrading my copy of SX2 for £361. Am I correct in thinking this?"

Steinberg: "You are absolutely right. The full Cubase 5 Educational version would be cheaper, that upgrading from Cubase SX 2 to Cubase 5."

So, for €413 I can replace my old copy for a new version. Or, for €299 I can get a new version as well as having a fully working older version too.

Is it me? Shocked

I've seen this before on a much smaller scale. Several times.
Often times, we'll put 1 liter bottles of water on sale for the same price as a 20 ounce.
Almost as often, the 20 ounce price will increase, but the 1 liter will stay on sale for cheaper for weeks.
scratch
We don't price them, it's all out distributors' work. They just don't bother explaining it.

1 liter? That sounds small and european, so it must be less than 20 oz which is 1.25 American pints (or 1 UK pint). I mean that's TWENTY ounces verses a measly ONE liter.

(for those who are interested, 20 Imperial ounces, or 1 imperial pint = 568 ml, or 0.568 litre, so 1 litre is just under two Imperial pints).

A 20 ounce is the size you get out of a vending machine.
A 1 liter is bigger by about half again as much.j
A 2 liter is the size you generally get and take home for multiple people to use.

Hey everyone, I didn't know where to put this so I will put it here. Anyone here who is currently my Playstation Network buddy or would like to be. I have changed my PSN. Eriktr0n was getting old. My new PSN is DoctorJunkPunch. This just seems easier than adding everyone back individually. Thanks!

EDIT: Never mind getting a new PSN established is entirely too much work.
