Simply crossgrade your Native plug-ins to the latest HD-HDX version.

Not all Sonnox plug-ins are available for AAX, but your new licences will be 'AAX DSP-ready'. When the individual plug-in software become available in AAX format, you will be able to download and use them immediately.

 

I own Sonnox TDM plug-ins and I'm planning to move to Pro Tools|HD 10 Native. How can I get AAX Native Sonnox plug-ins? Do I have to lose my TDM plug-ins?

Simply upgrade your existing TDM plug-ins to the latest TDM version.

The new TDM licence will support AAX Native, Native 32/64-bit Audio Units and VST and retains support for Pro Tools TDM.

Not all Sonnox plug-ins are available for AAX, but your new licences will be 'AAX Native-ready'. When the individual plug-in software become available in AAX format, you will be able to download and use them immediately.

 

What is the copy protection used for the new releases?

All new Sonnox plug-ins (“G5”) will require second generation iLok (“iLok 2”) from Pace. This includes the AAX DSP plug-ins and Native products that include AAX Native.

 

I want to buy a Sonnox Elite AAX DSP bundle, but not all your plug-ins are available for AAX DSP. What should I do?

While not all plug-ins are available for AAX DSP, it is still possible to purchase the Sonnox Elite HD-HDX bundle now, taking advantage of 40% discount on individual prices. Your licences will be 'AAX DSP-ready'. When the individual plug-in software become available in AAX format, you will be able to download and use them immediately.

Are user settings compatible between TDM and AAX?

Avid's advice is 'as long as you have the AAX or RTAS versions installed of the plug-ins used in the session, the processing will just translate over to the new DSP. If an AAX plug-in doesn't exist, the Pro Tools|HDX system will use the RTAS version'.
