Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

There is no way I’ll trade my perpetual Ultimate license for a subscription.
I’d leave Pro Tools instead.

Re: Hdx4 - hdx6

HDX6 is going to be a thing.

We won't know about the rest until the Mac Pro is out and Avid have a version of Pro Tools that supports HDX6.

Re: Trying to renew support plan

I had a similar issue.
Call them- it might take multiple phone calls.
I ended up making 4.

Re: Will this Mac Mini do the job in my producer studio?

I have a 2018 Mac mini for my main studio computer.
It works great for that.

I don't use it for video work because the lack of dedicated video ram means it doesn't handle projects as well as my...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

Same here.
Recall can be a bugger but I prefer the hybrid workflow where everything is on half-normalled TT patchays to the DAW IO.
It is easy to patch for tracking or mixing within a few minutes...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

Thank you.

My point was around taking what we have right now and making music.
I don't like paying $400 a year for support and I don't like the 32 channel limit.
I also don't like having no...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

I'm in the same boat- I paid for a HDX system knowing what the benefits and limitations are.
I get on with the job, as do most of Avid's customers.

I'm straddling halfway between HDX and Dante...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

I agree with most of what you have said- the VI thing is a pain in the ass and midi workflow is pretty amateur compared to other DAW's, but I just don't use it.
I'd love it if PT wound up with some...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

I'm not your dear and I'm no apologist for Avid, nor have I ever worked for them.
If you do even the tiniest of googling you'll be able to find out who I've worked for. I've got nothing to prove to...

Re: Pro Tools 2019 !

Voting with your feet is probably the best way to send a message but it won't do much in reality.

It is mostly hobbyists and semi-pro's that complain the most and Avid know that.

Re: I can't renew my annual Pro Tools Ultimate Subscription

I'd call Avid.
You'll spend 40 minutes on hold but they will eventually answer.

I tried for days to get a response form them regarding a support renewal- it was resolved on the phone once they...

Re: What computer to buy for Pro Tools in 2019?

Personally I'd wait for the new Mac Pro unless you absolutely have to upgrade.

If you you want to stay with Mac right now you have to go an expansion chassis if you want to use HDX and every other...

Re: Yearly support renewal for perpetual Ultimate license

FYI Avid have finally pulled their finger out and fixed my issue.
I had to spend about $40 in phone calls to do it.

Re: Yearly support renewal for perpetual Ultimate license

Thanks, but it is not going well.

I've been trying to call them for 40 mins now.

Back on hold again now.

Yearly support renewal for perpetual Ultimate license

I am still waiting for Avid to respond to me about what it going on, through the official support portal.
It is very, very frustrating to deal with Avid support.

Re: MAC MINI adapters for TB3 USB-3

Darryl is right.
I have the Mac mini 2018.
You cannot run High Sierra or earlier on it.

Budget for a new audio interface.

Re: In what area is Pro Tools REALLY lacking??

32 channel limit for non HDX/HDN.
It is silly, in 2019, for this to still be a thing.

If you have a KVM for switching keyboard, monitor and mouse, the next issue is hardware control support.
