Question about PCI + Express UAD Card

Hello guys,

theres something that i don't understand enough. I own two UAD PCI Cards with several Plugins. My MoBo only has one free slot left. It is PCI EXPRESS. Now i'd like to buy a third UAD , especially a UAD Expert PAK.
Now comes the part that i am unsure. Is it right that I can run all these three UAD Cards together and can use my licenses from the UAD PCI also on the PCI Express card? And do i get a bonus 250$ upgrade vocheur also because i already own a PCI Card? Still when i am holding this card?
All in all, this should result in 2 3 UAD Cards and 1000$ vocheur for buying new plugs! Is that right? :?:

How it works is, you can buy as many UAD cards as you can feasibly afford. However the license for each plug-in only works in the one hardware group of 4 cards, these can be mixed.

The electronic voucher allows you add extra plug-ins as they are released. So in effect, you only need to copy the license details over to tne new hardware and the plug-ins will work on all of them.

So your $100 voucher can be used towards any new plug-ins that get released. I'm not sure if you can redeem money by using the voucher, either way your quids in.

ok thanks.
I know i get a 750$ vocheur. There's an extra 250$ vocheur when I buy an express card and already own a PCI card. but is this 250% extra still worth when i keep my pci card?

I had (2) PCI cards for years, in my old DAW. I recently (several months ago) built a new DAW (E 6300 Core 2 Duo/P5B-E). In addtion to the PCIe video slot, the P5B has (3) PCI & (3) PCIe slots for further expansion.
I added my exisiting (2) PCI cards & then added (2) more PCIe Express Paks giving me (4) total UAD-1 cards on the MB. What I did not use, from all my \"cross-grade\", \"multi-card\" & in-box vouchers ($600), to purchase the Neve plugin bundle I still have in my UA web account (since they don't expire).
The combination of PCI & PCIe cards works very well together and I have had no problems. All my authorized UAD-1 plugins (I now have all of them) can be used across all (4) cards.

I still have $274 UA bucks in my account. I am hoping UA's next plugin release is a good one. I am itching to purchase another plugin, since I still have UA vouchers to burn. :wink:
