REMINDER...TODAY IS THE LAST DAY! I just bought 4 years of renewal for perpetual Pro Tools vanilla. FYI, Alto Music in Middletown, NY is open today 'till maybe 5pm est. Anthony Thompson handles PT there today. That's where I bought mine.

I just AUPed. Could well be the last $99 Avid see from myself unless they rethink their prices or else come out with something mind blowing?

My prediction is that Avid will quickly sweeten the mix what with all the discontent out there. Maybe a complementary Heat plugin for starters?

I have to say, i was chuffed about the short notice of the price changeover.

I would also have liked it if they did something like any plans purchased before a current plan runs out at the old price, after you run out, updated pricing. Instead of the rush to buy before July 1st. I mean, really? What was that all about?

I don't care for the subscription model but frankly after reviewing my history with this software i found that i bought perpetual licenses with the expectation of paying for major upgrades because I didn't see the point of paying yearly for incremental upgrades. The only reason i started doing so the last few years was because they had made it less expensive

So now it's back to the old pricing system. I cant remember how much i paid to upgrade from 5.x to 6.x but i'm sure it was at least 100 USD what eighteen or so years ago? I paid for one more year last week just for the hell of it. My systems all work fine, the only time i ever needed support was to get a price/billing situation handled, so i'm at the Meh, whatever point.

Admittedly, I got a little spoiled by the updates but no real need of them and i'll just go back to pay for upgrades if/as needed. 199 USD every couple or three years aint bad to me.

My feelings too.
I’ve had it for nearly 2 weeks now and it just gets better. Runs like a well oiled machine too.

Not over here, not impressed at all with Studio One’s performance on a MacBook Pro (2018, Mojave, 2.6ghz, 32MB, 1TB). I was hoping it works (at least) as well as PT but it didn’t - see my previous post.

Since they offer a trial, I suggest anyone considering it to download it and try it out on your own system with your preferred VIs - Don’t get carried away by the hype or the lower price... in the end, you get what you pay for.

Must be a system thing then because S1 runs better than PT has ever done for me. So no hype here just facts.

It could be, I’m not ruling out an issue specific to my system even if I haven’t experienced anything like it when I tried other DAWs...

I have a Mac Pro in the studio that is dedicated to music with no extra stuff on it, I’ll try it again on this machine, if it works as good as PT then it’s a no brainer to transition to Studio One! I definitely appreciate the workflow improvements over PT.

Default Re: ProTools price adjustments from July 1st.

I use Pro Tools since 1995, I love this DAW, the problem is to be forced to pay every year and if we do not do it, we have the penalty to pay more is the sale forced and in my country it is punishable by law.
I paid my renewal in June which gives me time to relearn on another DAW, I chose Reaper offers me the possibility of a playlist mode easy enough to learn. I'm 43 years old and it's going to be hard to change my habits but before AVID's fare change, I was already unhappy with the problems I had with PT, wasted time with crash and buggs and anxiety. not knowing when it was going to crash again. This new pricing policy is the small thing that makes a big decision with a lot of sadness, but when you feel like you're being held hostage and forced to pay for something that works in a random way, it's more bearable for me and I can understand that this is reasonable for some PT users. Everyone does what they want.
