TDM to AAX DSP options
There are two options for an existing Sonnox TDM plug-in owner who would like an AAX DSP licence.
TDM licence is exchanged for an AAX DSP licence. Cost: 75% off list price of the AAX plug-in.
Example: Inflator (AAX DSP) retail = £195 GBP Exchange price = £48.75 GBP. Multi-pick discount does not apply to exchanges.
Customer keeps TDM licence and purchases an additional licence for AAX DSP. Cost: 40% off list price of the AAX plug-in (only for existing TDM owners). Example: Inflator (AAX DSP) retail = £195 GBP Supplementary Purchase price = £117 GBP. Multi-pick discount is not applicable for these sales.
Exchanges are only available from the Sonnox website.
Important: Exchanges can only take place once the TDM plug-in is upgraded to the latest (G5) TDM version. Only then can it be exchanged for an AAX DSP licence. Cost: £15 GBP from previous version (G4) or slightly more from older versions.
Native to AAX options
AAX-Native. The new version of Sonnox Native plug-ins will include AAX-Native versions as outlined above. In order for an existing Sonnox Native plug-in owner to obtain a AAX-Native version, he must simply upgrade to the new Native version (G5) -available in December. Cost: £15 GBP
Sonnox Native plug-in owners may cross-grade to AAX-DSP versions. Cost: simply the difference between AAX-DSP and Native.
I want to buy a bundle but not all AAX versions are ready.
AAX-DSP. Since not all Sonnox plug-ins will initially be available for AAX-DSP, we recommend that you buy the native version now, and then cross-grade at a later stage when all relevant plug-ins are AAX-DSP compatible. You will end up paying exactly the same as the AAX-DSP prices.
AAX-Native. Buy a regular native bundle, and upgrades will be free of charge to the new G5 versions (which include AAX-Native when ready), for anyone who bought within 90 days of the G5 release (estimated early December). AAX-Native versions will be made available to download for free when they are ready.
iLok 2 is required for all new Sonnox (G5) plug-ins which includes AAX versions.
