Default Re: Waves V12 say goodbye to Mac Pro 2012 and earlier.

For those of you considering updating:

Not sure about this year but last year Waves was way cool about reimbursing every update I paid for with sales vouchers that can be used toward savings on new plugin purchases.
While these vouchers can't be used for upgrades themselves, you can apply the vouchers toward bundles or individual plugins.

The amount of savings is calculated at checkout but if used toward bundles or plugins that are above the mid price range you get the best savings. Way fair deals.
If an item is already on sale the voucher will have less value.
After using a bunch you get your own purchase strategy going.

Every plugin or bundle I updated I received a voucher for and scored on more plugins for my money.

I don't think you get vouchers as such but free plugins depending on how much dollars you spend. Used to be spend $50 and get one free plugin, spend $90 (IIRC) and get two free plugins. And the free plugin had to be of the $29 or below category. This month it's 30% off the second plugin, 40% for the third plugin and 50% for the fourth plugin.

I may have worded that wrong.
I don't think they were called sales vouchers but they were vouchers with a compensation value equivalent to what I spent on each UPDATE.
So if I spent $40 bucks on updates, they'd immediately email a voucher worth $40 toward more plugins.
I was compensated for every update $.
It applied to WUP plans only.
But because of using the vouchers toward more plugins, I was also able to receive the free plugin deals as you mentioned with those purchases.
They'd send an email with a link to all the free plugins to choose from.

Totally satisfied with how they're treating customers these days.

You still have their system wrong; at least for what it was before this week or so. Never saw a dollar-for-dollar spent 'voucher'. I never did expired WUP updates though.

Sorry, I'm posting way off subject...

On topic:

Yeah any PT version below 2020 isn't on the compatibility list with V12 either.

As regards my off topic post:
That was just an encouragement to those considering bringing their WUP current.
You might see more back for it than just a new version.

They didn't advertise it as an incentive to purchase a current WUP plan.
It was a surprise bonus. So just saying I hope those who pay for a current WUP get the same unadvertised bonus.

Back on topic: Of course, all this doesn't matter if it means having to get a new machine just to use V12.
