    so waves wants me to pay more to keep using their plugins i purchased. if i knew this was going to happen when i made the purchase i would not have bought them. there were some really good ones that were my goto, but in the future i guess i'll rely on what comes with my daw and to check to make sure that any plugin i do decide to purchase in the future has no add on costs or expiration dates. goodbye waves.....

    If I understand it right, they want you to pay to keep getting updates and new plugins that are added to your package. Not to use the plugins.

    Naw man, that is just the update thing. If it works for you and you already have the 64-bit versions, forget about it. They still and will always work. Don't fix it if it ain't broke. You still own the license for what you have.

    API 2500 and H-Verb are the only ones I have desired use and license for. And I have used them all. If it works for you, then don't bother with the update plan bullshit.

    I do still have 'One Knob Louder' and 'Scheps 73' eq. Totally forgot about them and haven't used ever. I would never pay for the upgrades for a full set. There is better out there IMO.

    100%. I've had platinum for about 8 years now. I paid WUP once to get to version 9, I think?
    Whatever V it is it's compatible with my set up and should be for quite some time.

    I own and use a lot of Waves plugins and I have never updated any of them. Unless Pro tools stops using AAX or everyone else drops VST's I don't see ever needing to upgrade

    I signed up to buy some Waves plugins tonight. I got as far as downloading the installer, saw that it was 160MB in size, and cancelled the download. Waves and I won't be doing business. It might eat my computer.

    If you're that worried about a 160MB installer, then virtual instrument packages (like my 33GB <-- Gigabyte Superior Drummer metal kit) must make you run away screaming in terror.

    Waves makes IMO some of the best plugins available at the price point. So it's your loss, not theirs.
