I thought it was pretty obvious that this deal is only for subscriptions, so if you keep using your permanent license paying yearly support fee (cheaper) those are not included.

Yep... so what is the annual cost of PT Ultimate subscription now? $800 if paid up front? I could buy two permanent HEAT licenses on top of the support plan and still come out ahead of this.

The Ilok description of the support plan is a "subscription". Just to muddy the waters further

Exactly! And no reward for loyalty either, it would seem. So, we pay $199 for a perpetual license for Heat now. Then, sometime in late 2020, Avid adds Heat to ALL annual renewal subscribers...for free. Do we get our $199 back then? Asking for a friend.

Here in the great white north of Canada Heat will be $260.00 Can. I use Waves NLS on every track. Very happy with that. I am on a perpetual liscence and I have spent many a money over the years being with Avid. I paid $500.00 for DigiTranslator and then a few years later it was free with the program. I do love using ProTools but I feel I should get Heat as part of my package.Every one on the forum has brought up really good points here and I have made up my mind to stay out of the Heat. Thanks all !

I would be very weary of paying anything for Heat or ANY other offering from this company, the way Avid has been treating their non-subscription customers.

What's wrong with doing business as usual?

The new deal for subscription customers is something that they give away to steer customers to subs. Can you blame them? If there weren't any perks for subs then why would someone choose sub if permanent license and annual update plan is better for them?

I'm not choosing colors here, I understand both ways of thinking. Just that if both are equal, which would you choose? And if it is in Avid's interests to get people on the subscription model, wouldn't they have to make it look more appealing than the status quo?

That of course was a rhetorical question
