Default From 9 upgrade ?

What I've noticed on my AVID account to upgrade from 9 to 2018 is the same price as if someone is buying the program for the first time, that's ODD.


I would imagine a better price point considering someone has been upgrading from 7 then 8, then cross grading you would be offered a better deal ?

A new perpetual license is $599US. An upgrade from 9/higher is $299US.

Thanks for chiming in jeffro.

Yeah I see that, what I was wondering about is that a person buying PT for the first also can get it for $299. I was hoping a better price point for a loyal repeat buyer. I started at 7, then 8, then cross graded to 9. Although absolutely not complaining, but was merely wondering why a new would get the same deal and a repeat buyer ?


Also I hope someone could explain the difference when getting the perpetual license ?, thank you.

Perhaps you are comparing perpetual and subscription?

A 1 year subscription is $299US, but that stops working at the end of a year. You can subscribe again (monthly or annually) as desired.

The $599US perpetual license never expires, so you can continue to run the latest version provided during your Update Plan's term.

I just checked my Avid store account and in 2014 I paid $199 for a perpetual upgrade from 9. So in 2019 $299 seems like a reasonable deal to me and I'm known to squeeze the buffalo dung out of a nickle.

Never expires, and provided during your Update Plan's term?.


I guess I'm going to have to read more to grasp better. Please forgive me, can get a little confusing for me, since I haven't upgraded since 9.

If say you bought the upgrade from 9 to 2019.5 today for $299 you would also get a upgrade/support plan for one year from today’s date (now I remember, when the support plan came along I had to pay an additional $99 on top of my initial $199, so basically same price today). With that support plan you will get any updates to Pro Tools free of charge for the next year and afterwards as long as you pay the annual upgrade/support fee of $99 each year (dealers sometimes have sales, I’ve got the 1 yr upgrade/support plan for the Vanilla PT as low as $78 before). If you don’t pay your upgrade/support fee, your Pro Tools license will freeze (but not expire) at the latest version available when your upgrade/support was last in effect. I have Pro Tools Ultimate, my annual upgrade/support plan is $399, so if you don’t need HD features, $299 is a heck of a deal on that upgrade.

Okay please forgive me?

But this is what I found ?
Avid Upgrade and Support plans provide software upgrades and customer support for one (1) year.
Once your license is covered by a support plan, you may continue to run your current version of Avid software for as long as you wish; you do not need to upgrade your license or your software. As upgrades become available, you can choose to either accept the upgrade or not at any time during the term of the support plan. At the end of the support period, the software will continue to run and you may use it indefinitely.


Please be gentle.
I what to upgrade from 9, and what I'm reading is (indefinitely). I'm ready to pull the trigger but like so many in the past I heard many stories of this and that ?

I just got off the chat line with Avid, if I upgrade from my PT9, for $299 subscription it will still run after a year, but I won't get any updates after the year unless I renew.


What suxs is that I can't use my Digi 003 console (BUMMER) !. So that leaves me out I guess for now.

You are making this harder for yourself than it should be. Most of the stuff you are asking about has info already online/findable.

I expect your 003 Console might work, but not be officially supported. You can check in about that on DUC. Start by searching for past posts.
