Many Steinberg products are available as a crossgrade at discounted prices. To crossgrade means to switch from a specific software to another.
For example, from Cubase to Nuendo or from a 3rd party program to Steinberg software. Among others, it is possible to change from Live, Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Sonar, Fruity Loops, Digital Performer, Studio One Professional or Reason to Cubase - or from Sibelius or Finale to Dorico.
A crossgrade requires that you own the corresponding software license. Crossgrade offers do not embrace rental licenses or subscription models.
These instructions describe the entire process from requesting the required authorization to ordering step by step:
- Go to the product page of the software you want and click the BUY button to go to the online shop.
- If there are crossgrade offers for the selected product available, you can find them on the software's online shop page under "Full Versions". Once a crossgrade offer is selected, the requirements appear on the right side. Now, you can check if you own a software license that entitles you to order the selected crossgrade.
- Add the desired crossgrade or competitive crossgrade to your shopping cart and click on "PROCEED TO CHECKOUT".
- Log in to your online store account or register.
- Click on "INITIATE VERIFICATION REQUEST" to start the verification process.
- Select the desired crossgrade offer again from the pull-down menu that appears.
- Upload appropriate proof of ownership (scan, photo, screenshot). The proof must clearly state that you own the license of a product that entitles you to crossgrade.
- Verification may take up to three days.
Therefore, please make sure to submit your request in time, especially for sales promotions!
Once your request has been processed, you will receive an email confirmation.
Please check your spam folder if you do not receive a reply.
- Open the confirmation email and click on the contained link, which will take you directly back to the online shop. Now you can add the desired crossgrade to the shopping cart and complete the purchase with the payment.
Please note that the authorization to purchase a crossgrade is limited in time.
As soon as the validity expires, you have to resubmit the verification request.
