An academic license is simply a perpetual license at a discounted price. Pay once and your version 1 license will never expire. With an academic license, you'll be eligible for all support and updates to version 1 of Soundbug. When the next major version is released (version 2), you will be eligible for a discounted upgrade.
Academic Licenses are available for STUDENTS ONLY. Once you've placed your order, you will need to email a copy of your current student ID to firstname.lastname@example.org.
