Sounds like a fair deal to me....sooooooo WHEN ????

I'd say probably shortly after PT11 is released?

So the key questions are:
1) Why wouldn't Avid at least TRY to see if the Control 24 works so you can at least let us know?
2) Which Driver for the Control 24 will I want to use? The latest one from my PT 10 Native+CPTK 2 upgrade?

Thanks for the help Bruce

One word for you - PT11HD trial

As the Control 24 is EOL Avid won't make any official statement as to whether it works or not or whether its been working during beta. were on our own now and until someone boots PT11 with a control 24 and posts on the forum we won't know!! If the driver is not bundles with PT11 then i guess we try the latest with that will come with PT 10.3.5 Stay tuned

Lets hope it works unless you want to see a grown man cry:o :D

Ridiculous in my opinion. Avid should do this test themselves at the very least. If it is not compatible, they should make it compatible. Don't own one, but it doesn't matter. Leaving this issue up to the consumer to test is irresponsible. It is a perfect example of Avid's methods that absolutely need to become automatic, in the best interest of their customers.

Lou....

Ping me any time - I an only an email or a tweet away. As for Control 24 - the product is End of Life (EOL) so the testing team has to make a decision. Test the EOL gear or test "Current" gear, CPU's, Laptops, Controllers, OS's etc.....

That isn't irresponsible.... its the way it is with most companies.

Maybe if an when the testing team comes up for air - they can rethink that but it is what it is... today.

Thanks! Like I said, I do not own one, but I am sure that a definitive yes or no regarding support would go a long way for people, rather than having them test it on their own. Even though most companies operate in that way, Avid can start to set itself above the rest with little courtesies like this. Customer service is priceless in today's marketplace. Sometimes it is the little things that go a long way. Just like you offering your email, cell, etc. That is awesome! Maybe you can take over the company? You seem to have great people skills.

Thanks, and have an awesome weekend!
:D Lou

Louieshowers,

The Control 24 was announced as being End of Life a year and a half ago, and that it would not be compatible with PT11, along with several other products. A year and a half is plenty of time for owners to make decisions and make other plans.

Avid is not responsible to test anything they already stated was end of life that long ago.

Just to add to this, Control 24 was discontinued in 2007. So it was supported for 5 years after that, which I think is pretty good.
