Default Why Are We Paying For 20 Years of Unimpressive Innovation

Avid hung thier hat on 20 years of Protools, in that 20 years, we saw them sit on thier hands and do nothing for at least 11 of those 20 years. Now i celebrate the last few of those 20 years, but if anything, they owe us, not us owe them. A strong business is built upon a relationship between the buyer and the seller.

If the cost of the Software upgrade was fair and reasonable, I would be celebrating, but that is not the case.

I personally think the cost of the new hardware is reasonable considering. But what they are asking customers to pay for the software, it is nothing short of detestable.
HD Native Pcie, PTHD 11, PT12 Vanilla, Omni, Lynx Aurora 16, 192 I/O (16 in/8 out), 24 Fader D-Command, lots of preamps and compressors.

MacPro 5.1 (12) Core (2009 MacPro 8 Core Upgraded to a 12 Core MacPro), 56 Gig Ram, SSD System & 3 - 2TB Drives, OSX 10.9.5, Windows 10 Via Bootcamp
