    Hey, have you seen that Space Echo and Dimension D for some reason disappeared from UAD store… Does anybody knows what has happened?

    Their licensing agreement ended. Those lucky enough to own the Boss/Roland plugins will be able to continue to use them, but they won’t be updated so who knows how long they’ll actually work.

    My understanding is that the license was good for 10 years and then Roland didn’t want to renew.

    I’m not sure if that means that these plugins can’t be sold by UA at all or if they could be if UA re-branded them without the Roland/BOSS name. I’m trying to find that out from UA and will let you know.

    I’m quite bummed as these were the first plugins I purchased for my UAD-1 back in the day and the Dimension D is key to the “Old Lady Electronic” sound!

    This is yet another time I’ve been burned by discontinued software. If UA can’t sell these plugins anymore or update them so they’ll eventually break with some software update, I’m going to have to bite the bullet and just buy a Dim D hardware unit.

    Looks like UAD just officially brought back the Space Echo and Dimension-D under new names 🙂
