Default Avid....why limit the plugins in PT first?

My thoughts are that its AMAZINGLY USEFUL to be able to use PT First as a test bed for plugins....i dont feel like destroying my work machines evertime i install some world destroying plugin masquerading as malware, and I dont feel like paying for machine with PT on it to sit there idle.....If nothing else, make it so you could run 1 or 2 3rd party plugins to do tests and see if it works properly.... we are always going to buy the full versions of PT ANYWAY, but this seemed like a cool idea...a zero cost test bed...??

From your other post, I thought you understood capitalism. ProTools First is your free app. Any plugins (as they have to come from Avid's Marketplace) are your "in-app purchase" like every "free" phone app.

As for your test-bed scenario... just move the ilok to the other machine when you want to test. Not to mention PT First is missing a lot of the features/complications of regular PT so wouldn't make a great test bed.
