Falcon 2
 
No - not a typo. Got an email from UVI this afternoon announcing Falcon 2. Free upgrade for those who own the original and $244 for new buyers. And you get to pick two expansions priced at $39 each. Not the top of the line expansions but interesting.

Couple of questions:
Being those of us that have PT 2019.6 have the original Falcon will we get Falcon 2 for free (subject to the terms of one's licensing for PT)?

If not and I decide to pop for Falcon 2 what happens to the Falcon license asset I have that came with my reinstatement to PT 2019.6 and is valid for a year from the reinstatement purchase? Will I then have two separate Falcon license assets on my iLok?

How do those that have purchased Falcon from UVI after getting the one that came with PT deal with the installation? Does the purchased one overwrite the 'freebie' from Avid? And will I still have access to the Avid/Falcon sounds/patches? I don't know if two versions of Falcon can exist on the same boot partition/computer.

Pure conjecture:
hopefully Avid will work this out with UVI - I'm sure nobody would mind if we didn't get the 2 free expansions offered to purchasers!

According to UVI we should get the upgrade install through our Avid accounts within a few days

Thanks for that bit of info. I still need to know what will happen if I buy Falcon 2 outright from UVI - will there be any conflict with the one we get from Avid as I outlined in my initial post.

Then just don’t install the”free” one that comes with the update plan.

Do we know what will be new with Falcon 2? (hey, that rhymes!)

It's already installed - did it when I got the PT2019.6 reinstatement.

Well you could look at the product page here:

https://www.uvi.net/en/software/falcon.html

Look at the 'what's new' tab. Also there's an overview video up on You Tube:

I'm sure there's some here who have installed the one from Avid and have gone on to purchase Falcon from UVI.

I should think there’s no problem whatsoever to upgrade to the “real version“. Surely UVI must have thought about this and hoped for thousands of Avid customers to do so sooner or later.

I don't think the problem would be on the UVI end but on Avid's end. UVI has no individual knowledge of the Falcon we get from Avid. By that I mean the Avid Falcon does not show up in one's UVI account - only one's Avid account. Hoping to get an answer on this because the sale goes through the 27th of this month.
