First I've heard of it but then I haven't been on my usual email computer today. Not surprised though.

I don't have the feeling that Waves is going to be subscription only anytime soon, I've heard people talking about something similar a number of years ago and that it didn't work, but I don't know if that's true. The Flex thing is better as you end up with the perpetual licenses but at this point I have most I need so I didn't care much when it came out.

BTW Christopher, check your PMs

They've been doing this awhile, since Summer 2018. So it's not anything to be concerned about.

It's not really much of a deal when you consider the overall payment for so few plugins, even if you own them after 2 years. IMO. You can get a much better deal by waiting for the Bundle sales or the $29 sales.

Have you guys noticed in the last couple weeks they've add $0.99 to everything. It use to be a straight price, $29, $49, etc... now all the plugins are $1 more (essentially) $29.99, $49.99 etc...

I don't mind a sub if there is value in it. The PA sub is unmatched for value. Over 110 plugins for about $0.57 a day. That easily pays for itself.

If Waves did a sub with similar pricing I'm sure it would take off as well. Though I don't need too much more from them since I have most of them.

I saw that, my first though was that they updated their store to make transactions in the order of $0.1 and $0.01 because before if you had a voucher for $28.50 the store wouldn't charge you the extra $0.50 (yes, I did that once ).

I noticed that; guess they wanted to raise prices but going a whole dollar would scare people off. They're using what's called the 'marketing penny' to get people who would never spend or be on the fence about buying something for say $30 but would at $29.99. Also allows a company to say 'we have these wares for sale at under $30 - buy now'. Pure psychology, nothing more.
