Updating Pro Tools
 
Hello,

I currently have Pro Tools 9 and am in need of updating since no plugins support it anymore. I don't currently have an update and support plan and have a few questions:

1) When I upgrade to Pro Tools 12 from Pro Tools 9, how will it impact projects I am currently working on? I use a lot of virtual instruments and other plugins. With those been impacted and no longer work with the updated version?

2) I am a homeschooling parent and use Pro Tools for some educational purposes. Does this qualify me the teachers discount?

3) When there are further updates will that impact plugins and virtual instruments that I am using in my projects as well?

4) I have some FX plugins that were working with Pro Tools 9 using RTAS. With those plugins that I paid for no longer work and need to be replaced with new ones that I need to pay for again?

5) Will I need to purchase a new iLok when going from Pro Tools 9 to 12?

6) is the 1 year plan $390.00 every year? That is a lot of money for software that I already bought for around $800 just to keep it updated.

Thanks for your help,

Tim

OK, I'll have a go. A little at least.
Why are you posting in the PT First secion of the forum, if it has nothing to do with PT First?
Going from PT9 to PT12 (not shure if that's even possible. Let's just say you're going to the latest version, PT2019) is just like going to new software. Completely new functionality, system requirements, hardware/OS compatibility, and as far as I know full new purchase price. And new Ilok. And no RTAS plugins will work. The plugins will have different aspects to upgrading/price. You will be able to open sessions, but plugins won't work.
OK, that's a start, at least.

And if this is the non HD version of PT9 and you upgrade to normal 2019 non HD it is $99 a year. The $399 is for PT Ultimate formally HD while PT9 to PT2019 (new version name from PT12) is a $299 first year for reinstatement and then following year $99.

Not anymore. It’s $199 a year for native now.

Ha! You’d think that price change would be burned into your mind considering the amount of moderating you would have had to endure a few months ago during reinstatementgate. =P
