No it's iLok1 also.

The email I receive was for those who recently bought AV6 and get the free upgrade to V7.

I'm sure everyone else will get the AV7 announcement email shortly.
That's the email I received:

Altiverb 7 will be ready real soon (end of this week), check it out:

Since you purchased after we annouced 7, you get the upgrade for free !

Altiverb 7 will be Mac only and it requires an iLok key.

According to our records you currently have a hard disk based challenge/response authorization for Altiverb 6. You can order an Altiverb 7 box with manual and an iLok key at Audio Ease for 30 EUR/35 USD incl. shipping (iLok keys cost $49.95 ex shipping elsewhere) once Altiverb 7 is released. Of course you can also order an iLok usb key ahead at your preferred pro audio dealer right now. Both iLok usb keys version 1 and 2 are supported. Many authorizations can be stored on a single key, so if you have one already for another product, possibly Pro Tools, you can use that iLok key for Altiverb 7 as well.

Best regards,

We have decided not to postpone release of the Altiverb 7 Mac version until the Windows version is ready. Unfortunately we cannot tell you yet when Altiverb 7 for Windows will be available. However, your upgrade to version 7 will be free of charge in case you purchased in January 2010 or later. For the time being Altiverb 6 will remain being sold for the Windows platform.

I have Alitverb 6 XL, which is EUR 159.00 to upgrade to version 7 XL.

I'm curious to know how much it is to upgrade the regular version. The website site will only show me the price to upgrade the version that I have registered.

I'm gettting $215 US for Altiverb 6 to 7 (not XL).

Seems like a whole damn lot for a better browser and an algorithmic reverb tail.

I have bought several full reverbs of equal/more usefulness then Altiverb for way less then this recently.

I think I'll pass - $99 might have got me....

plus the upgrade is XL is over $600.

Good thing I am so happy with 6.

I bet if they have lower than expected upgrades due to the price we might see a reduction or sale within 4-6 months.
