To be clear, I love ProTools especially after the nightmare that was Sonar for so many years but I have never installed any of the “free” plug-ins because of this particular reason.

I will install Falcon but print IMMEDIATELY after settling on sounds for any tracks, then inactivate the Falcon track so I know not to work with anymore.

Did I hear Biotek is the same way or is that a perpetual license no matter what happens?
I agree 100%. If you give something away for free do it from you’re heart not for money. I won’t download falcon if it’s tied to a renewal plan. I hate to worry about it not running if I don’t keep pro tools updated yearly. Hopefully I’m wrong

As of today still no sign of this in my account. I lost my day gig in September (turned 60 and they fired me), so I have to carefully weigh what I spend now. I had purchased Cubase Pro 9.5 in the summer, so now I have to make a decision on spending $99 for my PT plan OR spend the same to upgrade Cubase Pro to 10. Avid hasn’t impressed me lately and I still can’t get a “RESONABLY” priced license for Pro Tools HD 10 to run my HD4 rig on. Everything Avid does going forward will determine where I spend my little dollars.

I’ve already purchased lots of VIs that work both PT and Cubase, the Complete Air Collection, Steven Slate Drums; 3.5 EX, 4 and 5. I had purchased Sonnivox Orchestral Strings for $1 and noticed yesterday that an asset for their Twist synthesizer was in my iLok account while looking for Falcon. I also have subscriptions for Slate Digital, McDSP, Relab and have plugins from Waves, Metric Halo and others so I am in no way tied to Avid at this point.

I have little hope Avid will impress me going forward. I mean in the last year of the subscription I paid $99 I’ve not really gotten a lot for that $99. My needs are to get my HD4 tracking rig happening which means before I spend another $99 on my 2018.7 mixing rig I will buy a second hand iLok asset for PT 10 HD and upgrade to Cubase 10. I love Pro Tools and always have, but I need other things and if Avid is happy watching my $$$ go to 2nd hand sales or the competition so be it.

In November Samplitude Suite bundled with Sound Forge was on sale for $199. Sure it’s a PITA to use, but DAMN it sounds good. That sale will come up again, when it does I’ll go for it.

Well?

Has anyone actually received their authorization yet? I check my iLok account every day and it still hasn't arrived. I'm getting tired of clicking 'no' when asked if I want to move it to the Unused Plugins folder.

In this thread. Falcon tech issue requires a “manual” distribution. (?)

Yes. As other Avid “free” they are tied to avid-active-only.
Nothing actually being given away “perpetually”.
Just on loan.

I personally like my software to age with the system it works best on.

Biotek wasn't downloaded from Avid, but directly from Tracktion using a promo code that Avid supplied. So, that leads me to believe that Biotek is perpetual no matter what. There's no iLok license code for it either.

Maybe. East-West announced their new library "Voices of Opera" coming "this winter". Reminded me of Game of Thrones: "Winter is coming".

I haven't received it. Emailed Avid and got the "...we will let you know when it's in your account..." answer.

I don't understand why make an announcement when you're not ready to deliver...

Two of our systems have the UVI software available at Avid.com but the rest do not. None have iLok assets deposited.
