How much is it worth ?
 
I bought Pro Tools 9 many years ago and struggled to get on with it, I always used my Eleven rack and Tascam DP32 instead.

I still have the installation discs x3 and the box and all paper work. Plus the Ilok dongle and since I was second owner i remember vaguely I had to buy an iLok dongle 2 ..not sure why?

So having a clear out and just wondered how much it is worth? I believe you can swap licences over online now?

Hi, welcome to the community.

I'm afraid you need to have active "support and update plan" to be able to sell your license and transfer the ownership to the buyer.

New license is roughly 600 and "reinstatement" (of lapsed support and update plan) is roughly 300. Avid stopped selling reinstatements last year so you need to find a reseller that can sell you such plan.

Hi so you are saying its worth nothing?

I bought it second hand when i bought it and if i can remember the previous owner transferred the license over from his iLok manager account to my iLOk account? It seemed easy to do then?

Things have changed since PT9

Just trying to read up on it?
So what would happen if someone put the installation discs into a pc and then stuck the iLok into the USB ?

If you just gave your ilok to the buyer it would work just the same way as before. But the buyer would not be able to upgrade

Do people sell them as i wanted too? If i put it on ebay with the iLok etc How much would i get ?

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
Today you need to have active "support and upgrade plan" to get upgrades. And as your plan is lapsed you need to reinstate it first

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
If you have a buyer that wants your license cheaper than new license but more than reinstatement fee then you have your number right there

Not sure of the 2 values there?

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
New license 600, zero hassle. Reinstatement 300, need transfer of ownership. That 300 is your best case scenario as in you habe a buyer who wants new license and wants to donyou a favor. (Reinstated is just as good as new license)

Thanks ill try £100 and see what happens?

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
Jusr read this thread again and understand you have to buy the reinstatement from your dealer before you can transfer ownership. If you want to make a hundred you need to ask for four

Could someone not just use it after installing discs and iLok. I have no use for my iLok account

dvddvd 03-17-2020 02:14 PM

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
How can Avid change the rules like that?
I bought it as I was told if i dont use it or get on with it you could sell it again?

dvddvd 03-17-2020 02:15 PM

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
It seems all the rules have changed to make them more money?

Its like buying a Ford car and after 5 years Ford say your not allowed to sell Fords anymore without giving us money?

dvddvd 03-17-2020 02:23 PM

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
Thanks it seems a new license is £499 and a instatement upgrade is £286.80.

So a couple of hundred difference....

Final question after you have paid the instatement cost of £286.00 which version do you end up with? Is it still Pro tools 9 ?

thanks

Pro Tools 9 is now 10 years old. There's never been much value in 10 year old software from any company.

One way to get a feel for this is checking ebay.

dvddvd 03-17-2020 04:16 PM

Re: How much is it worth ?
 
So if i pay to get the instatement which version do i end up with? The newest version? Pro tools 12?

Latest version and updates for next 12 months, and also anything since PT10, you choose what version you need. You need to be prepared to renew your support plan while the plan is active, renewal is much cheaper than reinstatement (and nobody knows how long that reinstatement is available from resellers).
