Default Upgrade from 12.8.1 HD to latest PT 2018 HD - what am I missing?

Hey,

I'm still rocking PT 12.8.1 HD. It works really well with my workflow - music production pro, full circle from sonwriting to sond design to mixing/mastering.

I haven't upgraded since end of 2017, mainly because my subscription ran out and I couldn't justify the $ (for HD!) for the renewal due to lack of improvements. Also, I run a ton of controllers / Controllermate scripts etc., so changing some would take quite some time.

What are major improvements that could benefit my workflow? I couldn't really find a good comparison chart.

Things I already know about:
- MIDI editing with arrow keys (I'm a warrior with the numeric keypad, only thing that's new is holding option and/or shift+arrow for duplicates and octaves)
- Target playlists (little too clunky or maybe I just don't get it)
- Track presets (I made tons of templates/FX chains etc. that I import via import session data)

One thing that would really help is side-chain delay compensation, which is a HD hardware-only feature as far as I know, has this changed?

No, it is still exclusive to HDX cards

Yeah, kinda what I thought.

Any suggestions on what could justify shelling out for the upgrade?

If you have had the will to resist upgrading to Mojave, the next place should be given to us in a few months
