Facts are not spin, you are simply incorrect and spreading misinformation which isn’t helpful to other KVR users. The version you buy is yours forever, includes a years updates and all bug fixes (and small updates) after that their is no subscription, you update/pay when you want. You don’t pay for maintenance....it is nothing like pro tools, it is not subscription which requires you to keep paying to use you software.
It is exactly like the Pro Tools maintenance plan. You also do not lose your perpetual license if you cancel that subscription. Only difference is that Pro-Tools charges you a penalty if you restart an expired maintenance plan. And they have a full software subscription model as well. But that is not what I was talking about.
So you own the product witout paying or needing any type of subscription- there is nothing more to pay 'ever' unless you want to pay to buy new features.
Its an 'optional' upgrade plan that can be taken (or not) anytime. So by definition, its not a subscription that is required to use the product and you can use it like any other DAW just buying upgrades when you want them.
Unlike Pro tools You do not pay for maintenance updates/bug fixes for any version, ever and there is no penelty for not upgrading for 3 years and then buy the plan and get everying + 1 year in the future.
Seems like a good deal to me and more like NI Komplete updates than subscription (I am still on Komplete 9 and dont feel like updating yet and I went 6 months witout upgrading Bitwig before they relased new features that wwere worth the update to me- as it happems I will alos get V3 free which is a hell of a bonus considering I was only paying for waht was already available to use at the time)
