Default Will Waves offer free RTAS to AAX upgrades for V9 Plugs?

I'm just wondering if anyone has heard if Waves will be offering free upgrades from RTAS to AAX when they get the stuff out the door. Like currently I have the Renaissance RTAS bundle Version 9, and say if it comes out in AAX, Version 9 still, if it will be a free upgrade or if they will charge.

My own opinion is they will if you have a current WUP and they'll expect you to update it first if you don't.

Keep in mind, when that time comes, rather than WUP, it might make more sense to upgrade to a bigger bundle, which can accomplish the same thing.

For example, if you have Renn Max, compare the price of WUP, to the price of upgrading right now to Platinum, which contains the whole Renn Max bundle. Be aware that many dealers can give a further discount to your upgrade.

Or wait until Gold goes on sale again. It has most of your bundle in it. You may find that when these are on sale, the upgrades are also on sale, and combined with further dealer discounts, it may not be a whole lot more to upgrade your bundle vs. paying WUP.

Remember that whatever you spend on WUP you can use for 50% of any bundle purchase, (or 25% of any single).

Yes, which is a great solution if you have individual plugs or bundles that aren't included in the bundle you're upgrading to.

First, you WUP those, then turn around and use the voucher towards your bundle upgrade.

This way you pay about the same as just upgrading the main bundle, but everything you have gets WUP'd as well.
