Re: Heat + Complete Plugin Bundle for all subscribers

I get what you are saying. They are free to do whatever they want. They can stop supporting my license if they wish. It won’t be consequence free however, especially considering how many other good...

Re: Heat + Complete Plugin Bundle for all subscribers

I would be very weary of paying anything for Heat or ANY other offering from this company, the way Avid has been treating their non-subscription customers.

Re: Heat + Complete Plugin Bundle for all subscribers

Yes... use the included Avid plugins. What a great deal. This costs AVID literally nothing in physical dollars at this point to give you access to their old plugins, and to try to tempt users into...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Well I had some money rotting in a paypal account, so I donated 99.00 to the 'avid is broke, so give us money' fund before the July 1rst deadline. At least I don't have to worry for almost two years...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Yeah... that doesn't look like a good situation for Avid at all. Not a guarantee that circling the drain is imminent, but definitely not good. That might explain why this feels like a desperate cash...

Does that mean we will be getting something past 19.5?

Re: Change to Pro Tools Ultimate Renewal Pricing?

This does feel like a desperate money grab doesn’t it? And people have been shelling out too by the sounds of things. I am paid up through April 2020, but it is tempting to hand Avid one more handout...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

The problem for folks comes in when they buy a new mac with an old PT license. There is usually not any way to (easily if at all)back rev those boxes to an earlier os. Windows users don't have that...

It wouldn't bother me if it did. Pro Tools would live on.

Re: New subscription deal???

I suppose a couple of people will do that. Just to backup your assertion, the entry point to Pro Tools historically has been a non-trivial amount of money. The license rental cost for one product is...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

Yes you are correct. They haven't said they will do it. I do think they are considering it though. You are dealing with creative people, so emotion is part of life.

If they rescind all updates for perpetual license holders, that automatically will create a bunch of frozen systems and a stampede to competing platforms for small-time folks like me. I have been...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

So according to AVID numbers

360.00 per year rental @ 5 years = 1800
You can buy a 6 core mac mini with less cash than that WITH Logic.

I think Cakewalk is legit. I don't like the workflow, but what a value. Man.
