As you say, a little poor compared to the way it was promoted, yet to find anything 70% off at all...

That said, one thing that did stand out was Vocal Rider, reduced to $99 *and* you get a $200 voucher back with it.

That's correct - I think you can only use the vouchers as up to 50% of the value of bundles/upgrades or 25% on single plug-ins, so its only really worth it if you're looking to buy in tandem with something rather more expensive. Would give the full $200 off SSL 4000 for example, which I'm currently tempted by...

I'm also a little concerned about Waves and AAX.

FUTURE SUPPORT OF .AAX:
http://www.wavesupport.net/Content.aspx?id=4375

To Summarize:

"Pro Tools 10 Support

October 2011

Waves V8 plugins are supported on Pro Tools 10 via RTAS, AudioSuite, and TDM.

AAX is not officially supported at this time, but will be at a later date.

All Wavesupport News"

FREE UPDATE TO THOSE WITH Up To Date WAVES UPDATE PLAN:
http://www.wavesupport.net/content.aspx?id=2160


To summarize the link. Waves is aware of .aax and will start making .aax. NEXT. As with any WAVES UPDATE (IE V7--->V8), if your WAVES UPDATE is up to date on your waves plugins, you will be allowed to upgrade FREE OF CHARGE.

" All Waves purchases and upgrades include one full year of Waves Update Plan coverage.

With current Waves Update Plan coverage, you receive all updates and benefits at no additional cost.

Renew your coverage only when you want to. You don’t have to renew it every year.

No matter how many non-overlapping products you own or how long their coverage has been inactive - you'll never pay more than $200 per account to re-activate your coverage for one full year, starting today. For overlapping or identical products, the cap is $200 per bundle to re-activate your coverage for one full year, starting today. Read more.

Your current plug-ins will always work on a compatible DAW, even after your Waves Update Plan coverage has expired.

For every dollar you spend on Waves Update Plan coverage, you’ll get credit toward the purchase of any product or upgrade (up to 50% toward the MSRP of any bundle or upgrade, or up to 25% toward the MSRP of any plugin, after all applicable discounts.) "

-WAVES
