Note: You can load the 1080 presets into either SRX plugin, I posted them here already. So you *don't* have to "buy" the 1080 plugin.

I don't really get this "waiting" thing. You will be using it all the time. The only thing you have to *wait* for is the period of time where you can go "Phew, my licence type has changed now, I can feel better because I now *own* this plugin, and I can now choose to stop paying for a subs for all the Cloud instruments." As you load it, and once a week, it connects to Roland servers and prompts you to authorise it, no different behaviour than before.

Of course. However, they didn't *have* to do the perpetual license thing (assuming they ever go through with it of course) - they chose to do it to sweeten the deal and convince more people to subscribe, for at least some time. As it has done just that, we can assume it was a successful business strategy for them.

Yes, that describes all the potential customers perfectly...
In any case, you've expressed your dissatisfaction - check - we get it.
