Hi all, does anyone has experience in that?

My brother is in Usa, I’m tempted him to buy some sofware there for me, but I’m reading that I could have some matters about the location of my IP address when I install it.

Can anyone help me? Thank you

Never heard of anything like that with audio software, what specifically are you tempted to buy?

Well, firstly I found a music shop who sells a Cubase version I’m interested in, but there was this message under:

The boxed copies of Cubase 7 we sell are intended for use in the US. You may activate and use them in other countries, but you will receive an error message during installation included by Yamaha/Steinberg that is meant to deter unauthorized importing of the Cubase software. You will receive this error message based on the location of your IP address, so expect it even if you’re US military or a US resident traveling abroad. Steinberg has assured us that the product will work properly and receive normal support. Simply choose the option of proceeding anyway when the error message appears.

Then I sart finding more about this and I’ve found some thread as I’ve written above. So you think there shouldn’t be any matters?

Well seems like all it’s saying is that if you get the error message outside the US, click “proceed” and no problems. It’d be best if a Cubase user would chime in and discuss this with you, I had no idea this was even a thing.

And what if you install it offline?

I have Cubase which I purchased and installed while living in Canada. Since then, living in Japan, I’ve upgraded it from 6 to 7.5 without any issues. I’ve also had no issues purchasing plugins from other countries.
