Lol.
Waves must be like Santa Claus - they keep a list of who's naughty or nice, and release bug fixes and new revisions accordingly. So I think I we know who's been a bad boy . . .

From what I've seen they are constantly releasing minor bug fixes. They are point updates, not new versions like this. Kind of makes the above statements void.
True though, they are very solid from the get go anyway

sorry, i forgot about the 'r' updates. but most of these are for new venues versions or the odd minor graphic fixes and are never charged for.

i just mean ive never needed an update to run my waves bundles

Most audio software companies have big end of years sales, no? Been doing it for years? WUP anniversaries should fall predominantly around the holidays? Does this make sense?

So it's very attractive to do the WUP thing around the holidays. Last year's deal was awesome. I bet they'll do it again this year. Maybe not as awesome, perhaps merely super.

And then Waves does a version up shortly afterwards and that's a bad thing? It's win-win to me.

WUP is based on the purchase date. The WUP end date can also vary if you have other overlapping purchases.

Yes, I think that because they have a pretty solid product out of the box (I've had a couple of issues, that were eventually fixed), and by the sheer number of revisions per version they have been releasing - 13 for version 8? - they've clearly been hard at work - and I give them credit for that - I'd say Waves stands above their peers in this regard.

Now I've been somewhat critical of WUP and how it was implemented in the past. But I think Waves is clearly on the right track lately. Their prices have become more reasonable to someone like me. They're dropping the iLok. All good for me.

A certain DSP card-based platform would be getting my money, if their hardware wasn't so overpriced and under-powered

I'm saying Waves sells a lot of plugs during the holiday's sale - maybe Tony can weigh in on that. I guess I'm also assuming the biggest part of Waves customer base would tend to buy stuff on sale. Home studios, small studios, etc. As opposed to a more professional studio where if you need it now you buy it now.

All I know is I'm liking it

I think that more sales during the holiday is logical for most consumer products in general.
Major & select studios are probably comped.

Just got confirmation that it's a free update for everyone who has their WUP up to date.
So i guess it's less than 7 days and counting.. not weeks right?

My guess it's sometime Next week

Waves has big sales all year round. Some bigger than others. Will the new NLS summing plugin come in the V9 release?

No, I have had waves plugins since the mid nineties and never experienced any bugs that I can remember.

Speaking of long ago, still have this old kswavesdongle and no
nice upgrade offers anywhere, haha.

The only one I remember after all these years was the H-EQ issue on TDM. They fixed it fairly quickly though.

This is so cool! I've been waiting for 64 bit for forever. I just emailed you the other day, and got the link to the new discount page for the Waves plugs. Will the NLS be up there?

Nice... You've seen the new secret page! We just started that a couple of weeks ago. Glad it's working for you.

could this be the tipping point where more users take the 64bit OS plunge ??

still holding out on W7 32, even though I have 16gig of ram installed.....

might be the time once waves hits 64bit
