Nothing. No Pro Tools at all.

If you still have your 2016 perpetual, that will still work with Pro Tools 12.6 or 12.7

That's the difference between subscription and perpetual.

(if you mean a perpetual license with an update plan, then you will be able to run any version released up until the end of June. However you said "subscription plan" not "update plan" and when a subscription plan expires, you are left with nothing.)

Yes I have both Licenses...the funny thing is that the subscription licence on it`s own does not work it ask for the other license.
But thanks you answered my question...I can still use 12.7 hopefully.
I have to give this a try to confirm.
Peace

Actually I have this written ....Pro Tools annual upgrade and support plan.....
and at the top of my system ID i have written Perpetual Product.

Does that mean that if i stop my subscription next june , i will end up with Pro Tools 2019.6 max ?

Peace

Perhaps some confusion here between Perpetual and Subscription licensing.

The product in your Avid account is a Pro Tools Annual Upgrade and Support Plan (valid through 6/1/2019). I don't see a Pro Tools Subscription there.

Your license is a Pro Tools Perpetual Bundle (with 10/11/12) with a Release Limit date that matches your plan. You also have a Pro Tools Plan (this is a subscription license that authorizes the bonus Space reverb plug-in).

You need your Pro Tools Perpetual Bundle (with 10/11/12) activated to run PT (10.0/higher) and the Pro Tools Plan activated if using Space in PT.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jeffro..that`s clear now...sorry for my confusion.
...by the way I have no intension of dropping my license....it`s too cheap....
89 euros to own the latest industrial standart DAW....even as a hobby.
Thanks again
Peace
