Lexicon has released an update on their Facebook page regarding the development of AAX formats of their plug-ins. The announcement says:
“Here is an update regarding Lexicon Plug-ins and Pro Tools 11 AAX 2 compatibility for our endlessly, patient followers.
Development of our AAX compatible plug-ins is progressing nicely. We are expecting to release an Alpha version as early as February, followed by a Beta release one month later, and fingers-crossed a final version before the end of April 2014.
The new releases are much more than AAX compatibility, we are also working to improve CPU load tied to overactive iLok security checks and better optimization for newer Macs.”
Lexicon also announced a rebate on their MX200 and MX400. Buy an MX200 or MX00 between 2/1/2014 and 3/31/2014 from a participating Lexicon dealer and you can take advantage of a $75 mail-in rebate. The offer is only valid in the US. A qualifying purchase must be made between February 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014. More information on the deal can be found on Lexion’s website.
