I can't understand how some people are happy paying an annual fee just to get the things they already paid for.

I never said I was happy paying the yearly fee. It’s quite expensive for an HDX system. But I do need ongoing os compatibility. That I have not been getting and would prefer avid concentrate on that and performance issues before adding more features.

Avid's inclusion of Falcon is designed to increase our dependence upon the annual subscription. It is not an act of grace, it's an act of marketing.

No one is *truly* happy with the fee, though some will die defending their decisions to pay that fee. Denouncing Avid feels like denouncing them. And others benefit directly from Avid via various official and unofficial partnerships. These things are not revealed in everyone's signatures. So you have to be careful who you believe on both sides of the fence. There's always a motive behind bias.

FYI. I just spent a couple of hours tweaking two fairly large mixes I did over the past few days. 2018.10/macOS 10.13.3 vs. 2018.12/macOS 10.13.6. No issues but I wasn’t having any before while mixing.

Recording large numbers of live tracks while playing back a modest amount of reference tracks has been an issue since v 12. I have to set the buffer at 256 which I never had to prior to v12. Most musicians can hear the delay at that setting.

I hope 2018.12/10.13.6 fixes that. Will know next week on the next big orchestral recording.

You got that exactly right. It doesn't affect me but if one day I decide to stop my subscription it's going to be excessive compromise what will make me pull the trigger.

well so much for folders in 2018. That was obviously a flat out BS.

I feel the same....
For my workflow, Folders and ARA2 integration, are the most important features i miss from PT the most.
I renewed my annual plan on September, with the expectation that at least one of these critical (for me) features will be implemented until the end of 2018.
Flat out BS is the result...as you said.

I upgraded my Studio One 3 license to version 4, during the BF sales and it was a nice move as i see myself moving slowly on that wagon. Avid is moving very slow and in the totally wrong direction and i am tired waiting for them to deliver....

Cheers!

Less bugs and compatibility are the best new features.
