Happy 1 year anniversary

… to the absolute disaster that was the launch of “subscription only” on March 27, 2023.
I’m glad that Waves has reversed those decisions and embraced the coexistence of subscriptions and perpetual licensing.
Keep it up!

Yeah, eliminating the perpetual license was a big misstep, but they realised it and reversed their decision shortly after. It also took bravery to admit they were wrong. Not everyone would have done that.

It should have earned them extra respect, but too many people were seeing red and didn’t want to look past their own anger. Not one of them would be able to tell you they’ve never made mistake before in their life. The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

But Happy 1 Year all the same Waves.

I disagree. This was most likely a management decision based on numbers. Benn Jordan brought up some good points that Waves was possibly trying to get acquired: https://youtu.be/b_Aq3pCtsZo?si=nKqII06f1DK6_688&t=1021 The most likely and only reason why Waves admitted their fault was because the backlash would have hurt their revenue in the long term.
