Probably good news for IK too if they kept their Total Max suite price at current sale price going forwards.
Agreed! Melda is fantastic btw: permanent 'free' version upgrades for all of your Melda software purchases!

Take THAT, WAVES! :hihi:

Maybe when the time is right Melda will offer a deal that you can't refuse for their entire catalogue(!) - if they offer upgrade paths/make it overall cheaper then what was typically paid for a WAVES Mercury bundle...

We'll see.

Oh yes, I think Waves' competitors love how Waves drives their customers to them.

Purafied currently celebrate it with a huge headline "Wave Goodbye to Subscriptions" on their homepage: https://purafied.com

Plus they have some special offers to celebrate it with: https://purafied.com/collections/featured-plugins

"Or, if you already have a StudioRack license, you can simply update it in Waves Central, even without a new subscription or demo."

I have StudioRack V12. It will not update to Studioverse. Can anyone else confirm?
It seems the hidden part is that the StudioRack license must be under WUP, so that it can be updated to the latest V14 version. I do have V14 and I updated it to the latest version from the latest Waves Central app and tried opening StudioVerse from it yesterday, but I think it did not work. I will need to try it again today to confirm.

EDIT: Confirmed that it needs to be a StudioRack V14 license. https://www.waves.com/studioverse/knowledge-base

EDIT 2: I checked StudioVerse again and it works for me with StudioRack V14. Just needs internet connection, no subscription needed. However, it needs one manual search for the first instance after opening it in the DAW for the chains to start appearing, which seems a bit odd to me.

This StudioVerse thing looks really interesting to be honest and quite intuitive along with StudioRack.

They did but they also increased the price of several plug-ins; yesterday I bought the Millennia TCL-2 for 4.99$ (24.99$ minus the 20$ voucher) while today its price is 39.99$. Yesterday price for the bx_opto was 14.99 while today price is 29.99

:lol:

"No we're not prepared to face the shit storm that we created".

I wasn't even contacting them about the subscription issue. Only that the new Central update has f**ked up all of my plugins, for the hundredth time.

Actually a lot of them have increased prices since yesterday AFAIK, well - that's a bummer. :dog:

Some negative impact of the waves :hihi:

Plugin subscriptions make as much sense as a plumber who rents his tools on a monthly basis.
If you plan on purchasing your first Universal Audio hardware, you can get a free additional plugin. Just send a PM.

Regarding Waves subscription, looking at how intense they have gone into this, it looks pretty unlikely they will offer perpetual licenses or WUP again. An outlash could force them to start WUP again but I think that's the best it could get.

I am not a fan of subscription at all by the way, but I am covered with my perpetual licenses, and luckily on Windows, so can expect things to work for a long run if not forever.

I noticed a lot of the ones in the sub $20 bracket have gone up today. If you really want freebies then it's back to the usual suspects; bx pedals, the older unfiltered audio plugs, lindell individuals or the blimin' tuner. :) Oh and that Bass guitar plug, that sounds nice if you need that sound.

Interesting prices have gone up. With Waves $29.99 was the kind of industry benchmark but maybe that’s going to disappear.

Or in my case like a DIYer who needs to subscribe to all plumbing tools monthly so that I can use a plunger and a wrench once in a while.
