What some people miss is that you *can* put your licenses for Waves on any USB stick. Voila! Take your laptop out and you have your Waves licenses with you. This *does not need* WUP to work.
So for me WUP is *not* about a second license.
In years past, my WUP was almost always paid for by new offerings in Mercury at their intro price. Of course once it sent on sale for $29 or $49, not so much.
I own Mercury, Abbey Road Collection, SSL 4000 Collection and the Instrument Collection. I've yet to see anything added to the SSL 4000 collection since I bought it. Abbey Road *always* requires some cost for any new addition due to licensing as does maybe the instrument collection too.
All that said, will I continue to WUP.?
I don't expire until December of this year, except my instrument collection did expire in May.
