From Waves website:

1 year of Waves Update Plan coverage is capped at $240 for all non-identical products.

Your Waves Update Plan exceeds the $240 cap due to either selecting multiple identical licenses, or the coverage you’re about to purchase is for more than 1 year for some of the selected licenses.

 I have duplicate licenses.  Some of them are bundles.  Their stuff is great but I'm not going to feed them anymore until they change their licensing.

Agreed!! I never WUP'd until recently. And I really can't see me doing it again.

Unless it gets down to that $29 majik mark!!

The only thing Waves that I really care about is the Abbey Road Collection, and a few of their synths, Codex, Elements, and Flow Motion. I don't see any WUP in their near future, as the v12 seems pretty complete to me as is. But if Waves offers some compelling feature updates, maybe someday, but until then I will pass on WUP...

Same here. Lots of duplicates that take me beyond WUP domination. And an Abbey Road Collection serial I’ll only register when Waves goes M1 native.

As far as effects go, I have some great alternatives to Waves, except for the Abbey Road Collection. There is some seriously cool stuff in there that is not really duplicated elsewhere, IMO. Oh yeah, and Scheps Omni Channel. :)

Switched to PA’s Lindell 80 (and the SSL native bungle). Bye bye WUPpeedoodah.

I am with ya on this one.I decided to do it once and get up to date and that should carry me for a good while.

The give a free Mix Rack that's really nice too. It has an option to split any signal into different frequencies and route how you want to the plugins in the rack. It really is nice. You don't hear much about it at all.

I got Horizon probably about 2 years ago and not a single thing has been added in that time, as far as I recall. Not even close to worth it.

My Waves guilty pleasure plugins:

Sibilance

Manny Marroquin series (especially the EQ)

CLA-Drums

Scheps Omni and 73

API 2500

Renn Vox

I just picked up Renn Bass with Groove3 so it will at least get used once.

I keep thinking I need to try the Studio Rack...

Ain't n WUPing in site tho...  :)

My H-Comp expired last month.  Everything else is good until March '22.  I will probably pick up AR RS124 (only one I'm missing from the collection) for $29 and WUP one more time.  Of course, that's after I cash in on the IK GB :)

Ah, the ongoing WUP arguments Estd. 1994.

It's all in how you rationalize the math. I haven't purchased a WUP in 3 years, I can upgrade Mercury for $160.00..Say I only use half of the 180 plugins in the bundle, so 60 plugins costs roughly $2.70 each to upgrade. I haven't purchased a WUP in 3 years so I could look at that as .89c each. (Plus whatever new plugins were added to the bundle in 3 years)

I'll probably wait another year or two since I only use a few Waves plugins these days & they don't need to be upgraded to function in my older or current projects.

By then WUP might be a thing of the past (although whatever they do to replace it might be worse,  not worried either way tbh..)

The key is to wait and go for big bundles , my mercury is V9 , V12 introduced a lot of great features and new plugins .. but it's windows 10 onlys os i 'll still wait but unless you have interesset in updateing (plugin resize is one of them for me) , no need to do so ...(for windows guyz)

I also wish Waves would do away with their plugin "shell" method. It is annoying to have to wait for a full scan anytime Waves updates or adds a single plugin. And while they are at it, how about granting 2 licenses per plugin, like most other companies, huh?

The problem is that they charge the WUP, but you see no added value. There's no update to their GUIs (rezising? Sure, pixelated..), buttons that you cannot assign to midi, buggy performance (cla nx) and zero new features (adding M/S, hpf, lpf, meters, etc)

This is why I don't mind WUP. I can take it or leave it and my projects still work.
