Default On the fence: Should I upgrade from PTLE 8 to 10?

I have a Macbook pro (2009) Core 2 Duo, 2.5 Ghz, 4GB RAM and I currently run PTLE 8 through my DIGI 003.

I'm graduating in a few weeks and wanted to see if it was worth upgrading ($300) to PT 10 and why.

Other than the open compatibility (which is not an issue for me since I will still use the 003) what else would an entry level, amateur like me benefit from?

I think 10 is a major improvement, even to 9. I love clip gain and use it every day and the whole thing just runs better. PT10 is faster, runs at lower buffer settings, and just more stable than any previous release in my experience. I run it with an Mbox 3 Pro, which is also a great product from Avid.

I don't remember what was added from 8 to 9, but I think you'll be getting a pretty big bump in features and overall quality if you upgrade.

You won't regret it.. ADC alone makes it worth it! 32-bit file support, interleaved stereo file support, mp3 export, clip gain, no more separate fade files, real time fades, better audio engine(IMHO) and probably some other things.

Even as a hobby or novice.. PT10 has a lot to offer. A lot of the "new" features are things that DAW's like Cubase have had forever.. but really give PT's the full set at least for me to do things in a more timely fashion.

Hope this helps!

Since PT9 you don't need a toolkit anymore for timecode-display. A true benefit, if you work in post.
