Re: New Pricing

You loose your perpetual license if you crossgrade to subscription. It can make sense to a business who is deeply involved with PT and needs to always be on the current version, or at least being...

Re: New Pricing

I can’t wait to see what surprise they’ll have for us next June....

In my idealistic mind I thought to myself that the version they’re working on now(2020.?) is so stable that they said ‘we need...

Re: Pro Tools reinstatement plans axed from Jan 1st 2020

Not so sure. My plan ends in 4 days and that’s what they’re telling me on my account. From what I’ve read, people were saying that, for example, 3 days before their plan was ending they were having...

Re: Pro Tools reinstatement plans axed from Jan 1st 2020

Yep I know but that was kind of a sarcastic question saying the line is starting to be thin between both options... ;)

Yeah, but if you’re on Mac you better not update your OS ever or your perpetual license will be unusable...

Re: Pro Tools reinstatement plans axed from Jan 1st 2020

So, for someone who absolutely needs to have PT, what’s the difference between being on a subscription plan and having a perpetual license that you’re forced to update every year or you loose the...

Re: Pro Tools reinstatement plans axed from Jan 1st 2020

Next move will be a doubling of the subscription price next July with a possibility to buy yearly subscription plan(s) at a reduced price, announced mid-June so people will give loads of cash to...

Re: Offline bounce is going so slowly

Using UAD will slow down because the process goes between your computer and the DSP chips in your Satellite or Apollo millions of time during the bounce down. I mainly use Logic and it's the same...

Re: New Pricing

This, 100%. But at the same time I can easily understand someone who have no choice but to continue with PT for whatever reason this person have.

Just as a comparison, I had 200$ budget for BF...

Re: New Pricing

I hope people see the game Avid is playing. They announce these bad news for us close to the end of a fiscal quarter end forcing people to lay down cash before they would have. This is giving them a...

Re: New Pricing

My info is not from a reseller but a supplier, a distributor if you will. But you’re right. Final word will be from Avid themselves.

Funny how every couple of fiscal quarter end, Avid pulls out a...

Re: New Pricing

Re: New Pricing

I can confirm the info about the change in pricing. After dec 31st 2019, reinstatement won’t be possible, if you let your plan lapse you’ll either have to buy a new licence or go subscription. Funny...

Re: Are we not due an update??!!

Agreed, obviously for every copy of Logic Apple sells, they sold at least one Mac computer to run it before Logic could be installed on it. Even in 2009, Logic was not 200$ but at 499$USD for all the...

Thanks for the reply but a Gearslutz thread is hardly real inside knowledge of the business ;)

Re: Are we not due an update??!!

Someday, I’d like someone with real inside knowledge of the business to tell me if a software like Logic Pro can really be seen as a loss-leader vs hardware, computers in the case of Apple. I mean,...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

That's the whole point there, for me anyway. it,s not paying 101% more. It's getting less and less for your money everytime they change their policies. PT 12 arrived with no new features(can you...

Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

I wonder if Avid knows that their programmers are getting really good and are about to come out with a stable version within the next months. If so, people with perpetual licenses would stop renewals...

Re: CPU usage different with 2019.5?

Well, I'm not a Power PT user and sure don't have the most powerful Mac but it took less than 2 minutes before I got a -6101 error and playback stopped. PT CPU usage shows a 24% usage. Everything...

Re: Free gift from Avid: Accusonus Voice Leveler

On top of the page of your products and subscription, there’s a «*click here to claim your offer*». Once done it will appear as one of your last product. That did the trick for me anyway.

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

Well, I didn't say it's uncommon but thinking it's the 'most' common is not the real picture of Avid customers. Big and small 'music' studios use a mix of all the current DAWs, including PT, and it...

Re: What makes Pro Tools pro?

Where you’re mistaken is thinking stereo music making is the common use of PT. Once you realize that, the rest will need no explanation.

Re: PT users are stuck between a rock and a hard place

The title should be «*Logic Pro users are stuck...*», but then it wouldn’t have its place on this forum. :D
