Default August approaches and my annual plan expires in a couple of weeks.

I'm truly torn what I should do.

Official support ends for us ICON guys August, not sure if it's worth renewing or not.

What would you do?

Default Re: August approaches and my annual plan expires in a couple of weeks.

I'm not in a major need to upgrade, even from 12.8.

There's some good new features in 2018.

There is no way on earth I will ever move to any version of Pro Tools that doesn't work with ICON. I would hate to mix without it now (and record via it), and I don't think S6 is as good in many ways.

Luckily 12 and 2018 are already very good/feature complete versions of PT and on windows at least shouldn't ever 'need' upgrading for any OS compat issues (not sure with OSX that likes to throw curveballs at stuff when bringing out new versions).

I really think AVID will continue to allow ICON to work with PT for quite a few years yet (rumour is around 5 years after official support stops) in new versions, even if not officially supported. They did with Control 24 and that wasn't anywhere near as ubiquitous as ICON is (in lots of big post houses around the world and plenty of studios).

Wait and see if new versions work with it or not, then upgrade if so. If not, stick where you are is my advice.
