Can’t really tell what I’d gain for spending that. Is it really just the output section and the updated strip workflow?

It doesn’t seem right that you have to purchase twice if you’re using the Luna API collection but want to use your available DSP to run the plugins instead - is this really correct? Currently, I have more DSP power than native CPU power.

Also, most of my work is still done in other DAWs - so feels a bit much to have to buy the API collection ‘again’ if I permanently moved to Luna in the future?!!!
I think, when u buy the luna extension u have the newest version of the plugins too?

Thats what I read on the UAD Page:

Beyond LUNA…

The API Vision Console Emulation Bundle also includes UAD plug‑in versions of the API Preamp, Vision Channel Strip Collection, and API 2500 Bus Compressor, letting you track and mix in real time with Apollo and your favorite DAW.
