Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Just went back to Absolute Music and the support plan renewal has been completely removed for normal users, only the educational (institution) version is available.

It's not the first time that Avid has posted conflicting information on social media and/or via Pro Tools/Production expert.

And if it turns out that the guy who “seems to work for Avid as some...
