Angry Waves Horizon kills Diamond die-heart fans...

Franking speaking,I'm very disappointing with Waves,correct me if I'm wrong...I really appreciate free plugs from Waves as a Diamond bundle owner but here comes the Horizon and will Horizon owner get more free plug than Diamond??

I'm not going to pay for the WUP at the moment...seriously I think Waves should at least give 50% discount or more to Diamond or Horizon whenever they give free plug to Mercury.Since Waves can afford to give plug why can't they afford to give discount?!!

Maybe I should invest more on Mcdsp and other plugs...
rather being a die-heart fans of Waves...

I guess it's time to "Waves" my hand to Waves.

Hmmm. . . so why don't you just purchase Mercury like many others? I had Platinum with L3 + L316 and looking at what Diamond had to offer made no sense for me, but Mercury did, especially with some of the discounts Waves offers for upgrades from time-to-time. Maybe Waves will offer you a special deal to Horizon, if that is enough for you. . . can't hurt to ask.

You can upgrade from Diamond to Horizon, most likely you will just pay the difference between the bundles. Through most retailers that would be a little over $1200 for native, or maybe $1600 for TDM. It may actually be even less. Call Sweetwater or maybe Waves Universe. Waves is generally pretty good about upgrades.

Horizon sounds like a retirement home.

Waves,

they are great till you need support, like when you need to reauthorise when your mac [bleep][bleep][bleep][bleep]s itself

WUP, never been good!
