I currently have a ux1 studio.  I use and love my pod farm 2.55.  I needed an extra phantom input so I just ordered a new ux2 studio.  So I will not ned the ux1 anymore, I will sell it, so will I be able to gift my pod farm license for that ux1 to a buyer and still have my pod farm 2.55 that is supposed to come with my new ux2? 

 

If not, then I would not see this as fair by line 6 because I paid full price for both units which is supposaed to include the cost of podfarm, but if I have to give away my only license when selling the ux1, and it comes off my account, and I can't use it for my new ux2, then it would mean to me that I paid for TWO pod farm instances and only get one that would go with the ux2.  Or, I have to get less for my ux1 because something that came with it new is not now still with it because I had to keep it to use with my new ux2, but I already also paid for a ux2 with podfarm.  So I should be able to sell my ux1 with podfarm and use my new ux2 with podfarm also, since I paid full price for each unit.  

 

So how does this work?  if I buy 40 line 6 units that all use pod farm, and I only get one license, yet I pay the full price for each unit and a license of podfarm, and I can't transfer them as i sell the units, then effectively, I would be paying for 39 extra instances of podfarm and I would only get to actually use one of them, and line 6 makes the money for 40 of them, is this correct?

why not just sell the ux1 as is, and keep the license? the new owner gets pod farm 1 with it anyway... let them worry about their own upgrades.

 

if the license is included with the hardware the hardware owns the license... not you....

you only own the license if you buy it separate from the hardware.

 

so if you buy 40 devices then there are 40 instances of pod farm possible...

 

if you buy 40 copies of pod farm without the hardware then there are 160 instances possible....

since each hardware independent license can be authorized on up to 4 devices/computers at one time.

"why not just sell the ux1 as is, and keep the license? the new owner gets pod farm 1 with it anyway.."

Cause then my resale value is hurt.    If it goes with the hardware, then why can't I send it with this ux1 hardware and I get another copy with my new ux2, right?

if you buy a NEW ux2, it will have a pod farm 2+ license with it yes.

 

as to whether or not your old UX1 has a 2+ license, much depends on the dates purchased etc...

but as a general rule they have a pod farm 1 license permanently etched in their memory...

and pod farm 2, is more often than not a paid upgrade.... (HINT: none of the redface models came with a 2+ license)

because pod farm 2 didn't exist when the majority of the interfaces where sold.

but trust me... there's not much resale value anyway, and very few people would factor that in. (sure, they'll be some)

i can and have picked up UX1's on craigslist for 20$...

seriously... after gas money and hassle... i wouldn't factor resale in as much help towards the cost of the UX2

+1 to Zap. If you were using POD Farm 2.5 with the UX1, but never purchased a separate POD Farm 2.5 license,  it will have POD Farm 2.5 anyway.

 

Did you purchase a separate license?

Hi. No, my UX1 is the black studio model that came with Podfarm 2.0  I never purchased Pod farm separate.  I have owned two of the older red UX2 models, but my new one is the studio model as well.  Ill probablt just end up keeping my ux1 for my other laptop.

OK.

 

Well just for the record, if you did sell it, will have POD Farm 2.5 attached to it, so no worries.
