    I think even if somebody did feel they needed it, after learning all this about it they will feel they don't need it!
    Being online, for a start? Nah!

    Man! Being connected to your UA account AND having the UA hardware connected AND Ilok protection... wow that's a lot of protection for a "free" program!

    man, i'm on PC!

    i haz 3x UAD2 Quad PCIe, and I swear only BY and i'm sold out to UAD2 already.. i don't need LUNA.. like .. AT ALL. even f0 phr33.. the shit i produce is totally WAVES, T-Racks & Izotope FREE. i don't even have any of those plugins installed / cracked. (and btw wtf is that Soothe thing that everyone is overyapping about everywhere ,??! LOL)

    - when you'll lisin to what an UAD2 Helios Type69 or Neve1073 can do to your tracks, then you'll understand what i mean. (add to that Studer A800 & Ampex tapesim plugs too)

    that's way before that lousy LUNA, i just don't understand at what user fauna & market they tried to aim it.

    I think you've hit the nail on the head.
    They must be aiming this at animals, as you say. Animals don't know a lot about audio engineering, so they'll be duped easier.
    Plus they don't carry any money; no pockets. Which is why this is free.

    I fail to see the point of forcing ilok onto users who already spent $1500 on an anti-piracy box with a $20 texas instruments chip.

    Because the plugins in LUNA don't run on DSP cards, they run natively, so there has to be a solution for them to protect these paid-for extras going forward, and iLok is about the best way to protect them at this point. Plus I guess it means you can take your machine + LUNA to another studio and record with their hardware, and not have your plugins locked down to a specific card, like the UAD plugins are.

    I have Apollo interface, PCIe cards, bunch of UAD plugins and it costed me a sh**load of $$$. Maybe way too much.
    I DO like the sound, Unison plug-ins and the Console. But I just don't get all the hype about LUNA. Nor I understand the guy who received stimulus check and immediately spent it on LUNA add-ons. I mean, WTF???

    I'm on Windows BTW, and not interested in LUNA at all when it comes out for PC.

    Why did UAD make a DAW?
    What comes next? Ice Cream companies selling milk? :suicide:

    In the USA state of Florida the Marijuana business is skewed to purely favor the very wealthy companies by mandating that only vertically integrated corporations are given liscence. That means that the startup must be able to immediately together grow the product, package, distribute and run their own stores. This destroys the regular citizen to be part of the income cycle and so creates near monopolies where pricing, quality and every other aspect of the business is in the hands of "asshole mafia types in suites" (a technical term of the 21st century).

    So to answer your question, only time will tell in this new era where central banks are buying everything, printing up money in the trillions from thin air and showing everyone and now in the open that the monetary system is just a racket, that taxes are just to put a thumb on the average working stiff and that the future will resemble the serf and master medieval scenario of our not so distant past...if they get away with it without a fight.
