After Avid, Slate, McDSP and probably others, Flux :: has also opted to offer a subscription offer for its plugins - but you'll still be able to buy.
Flux:: subscription licensing offers access to the brand's most popular plug-in bundles with either a monthly or yearly subscription plan. Flux:: subscription licensing requires an iLok account (with the possibility to choose between authorizing directly on the computer without a dongle or to an iLok2 usb dongle - iLok1 not supported), as well as a Gobbler account for the subscription, billing and license management etc (just an advice: if you can, check if Gobbler installs properly on your system first, before subscribing. You never know...).
In the same time, all Flux :: products will still be available as perpetual licenses, and current owners are eligible to special loyalty price on the yearly subscription plans, and up to six months of free subscription to one of the subscription plans (with the number of free months based on which plug-ins they already own). And of course, they won't have to surrender their licence for owned products either.
Four packs are available:
- The Elemental Pack includes Pure Compressor v3, Pure Expander v3 and Pure Limiter v3. Monthly subscription is $9.99, yearly subscription is currently available for $79.99 as an introductory price (instead of $99.99).
