Slight clarification... you have an Update Plan with a perpetual license (not a Subscription). Renewing that changes the Release Limit date on your Pro Tools Perpetual license (check the date using Show Details for the license in iLok License Manager). There are/were a couple subscription licenses included with that which have caused confusion:
  • The Pro Tools Plan license authorizes the Space plug-in and was included with a Plug-Ins and Support Plan which has been discontinued, so that license will not renew. (The Plug-Ins and Support Plan became obsolete since support was moved to the Update Plan and our Complete Plug-In Bundle provides a whole collection of plug-ins at half the price.)
  • The Upgrades license (originally provided with Upgrade Plans) was not implemented so that will not renew.
You can deactivate those 2 licenses, and use the Hide option in iLok License Manager if you want to remove them from your main list.

Ok Thanks will do.

Yup. I took advantage of the savings a few days ago as well. About 30 days prior to my support plan expiration.

It was also my understanding that the "Bonus Plugins" were no longer available.

That was what I found out as well. My concern was that I already own (well you know have a purtetual license for) a good portion of the plugins that are included in the Complete Plug-In Bundle. The Eleven Rack FX were the plugins that I really wanted to keep, so I was going to purchase the lot of them seperately, which would have been about the same cost as the former Plug-Ins and Support Plan.

However, with the Bundle deal from Sweetwater (https://www.sweetwater.com/store/det...petual-license) I got the 1 year renewal of Pro Tools PLUS a one year subcription to the Complete Plug-In Bundle for like $119 USD, which gave me the chance to basically try out the Pro series plugins, and keep the 11R FX and save some money.

My concern was what happens to the plugins I already own? Eleven MKII, Pultec bundle, Space, etc? I was told it would just update those plugins, and if i choose not to renew the plugin bundle next year, those would be unaffected. Guess I will find out.

Yes, now the only issue that I have is since I also purchased the Complete Plug-In Bundle, and activated it right away, that subsription is now due about 30 days before my Update Plan. Oh well, I save a few bucks, always good, and I can tryout the Pro series plugins now fairly easily. (Really digging the multiband dynamics right now)

Nothing happens to those, they are independent from the complete license bundle.

That was the info that I got from Sweetwater as well. Thanks Jeffro, for the confirmation.
