The new release will appear at NAMM near the end of January and will be released at some point after that. In the last couple of years the new version has appeared in beta for us to play with during January but prior to NAMM.

NAMM 2020 happens January 16th-19th, which is several days earlier than usual.

It feels quick because they cycle version numbers every year to get people to keep paying.

Tracktion is selling Waveform for so cheap I really don't mind if this is the motivation for the consistently pushing Waveform forward.

Only issue is that I wish things would get a bot more stable. I love how fast it responds to crashes and I have never lost a midi note and it comes back within 2 or 3 seconds but still wish for some stability which doesn't sell new versions but will sell more copies int he long run.

Waveform and Bitwig are my DAWs and UHe is my Bae. I maybe buy one synth a year. REMEMBER SELF just one synth a year!

You don't have to buy every updated version. You can pay every second (or perhaps third*) year, if you wish.

* though check that with support.

Paying for yearly updates is one of the most reasonable ways to fund ongoing development. I'd rather have a low entry cost and yearly paid updates than a huge entry cost. Paid updates focuses the development around long-term users, rather than on attracting new users constantly.

Yeah , It's basically a yearly subscription type thing in a round about way .
