Upgrade your
Rent-to-Own software

Upgrade your software for the same low monthly fee

Rent the latest version of your favorite music software for the same low monthly rate as the older version. When you upgrade, your rental timeline is extended until you've paid off the discounted price of the upgrade. Enjoy the same flexibility you’re used to with Splice—no interest or hidden fees; pause and restart your plan any time.

Why upgrade?

Get the latest version

Upgrade your setup. Get immediate access to the latest version of your favorite plugins without your wallet taking a hit.

If your existing Rent-to-Own plan is active or you’ve paid off your lease, you’ll have full access to both your older version and all projects created on it.

Keep your work

Get full ownership

If you’re already on a Rent-to-Own plan and decide to upgrade, you’re working towards full ownership of the older and upgraded software.

When you upgrade, make payments toward a discounted upgrade price instead of paying the full retail price of the new version.

Pay a discounted price

How does it work?

When a new, paid upgrade of your Rent-to-Own software is released, you have the option to pay the same low monthly rate you were paying for the older version. Simply extend the timeline of your rental period until you’ve paid the discounted upgrade price, then own both versions forever. 


If you’ve started a trial, made at least one payment, or paid off your original Rent-to-Own plan, you’re eligible for an upgrade.

Am I eligible for an upgrade?

If you pause your upgrade, you’ll lose access to both the older and newer version of the plugin. You can resume your plan at any time to regain access to both pieces of software. You’ll receive the full license and the serial number of the older version after paying off the first plan.

What happens if I pause my upgrade plan?

No, once a manufacturer releases an upgrade to a plugin, the older one will no longer be available to rent as a new subscriber. But if you’re already paying for it, you’ll have full access to both versions.

I’m a new subscriber. Will the older version of a plugin be available to rent when a new upgrade is released?

Nope. When you upgrade, the only thing that changes is the length of your rental agreement. You’ll pay the same fee just a bit longer until the upgrade is paid off. Or, pause or cancel any time. If you choose not to upgrade, nothing changes.

I already rent an older software version, will the price change?

Yes. You can pause the older version of your software anytime and Rent-to-Own the new, paid upgrade as a standalone version.

Can I purchase the new version without upgrading the older version of my software?

You’ll receive a serial number and own the license forever.

What happens when I finish paying off my Rent-to-Own plan of the original plugin?

Contact customer service at support@splice.com and they’ll gladly get back to you as soon as possible.
