Question PT 8 - Box & Download - Or just Box Version

I'd like to know whether anyone knows whether the 8 Upgrade will be available for download as well?

Thanks

I have the confirmation from a Digi guy at a ProTools 8 presentation that it won't be available as a download. Boxed only.

From the ProTools 8 Info page:

Purchasing the Pro Tools 8 Upgrade
The following upgrade options will be available for purchase when Pro Tools 8 is released:

DigiStore Online Purchase
Pro Tools HD 8 Upgrade (download only)
Pro Tools LE 8 Upgrade (download only)
Pro Tools M-Powered 8 Upgrade (download only)

Optional installation disk sets for the above will also be available for separate purchase from the DigiStore within a few weeks of the release of Pro Tools 8.

Authorized Digidesign Dealers
Pro Tools HD 8 Upgrade (boxed version)
Pro Tools LE 8 Upgrade (boxed version)




Rather looking forward to this release as well, bought me a new hard drive and waiting patiently…

Then why am I getting emails to contact my digi dealer asking me to pre-order if I can just d/l the upgrade? So if I pre-pay for the upgrade through my dealer I won't be able to d/l pt8 when it's available on the digi site? Will pre-paying make it take longer to get pt8? My spidey sense is tingling, in a bad way....

Your dealer won't make any money if you download from Digistore - hence the emails I suspect.

Then why do the emails telling me to pre-order from a "dealer" come from digi?

To help them calculate how many to initially ship. Remember retailers do not want stuff sitting on their shelves. Inventory taxes and such.

Thanks a bunch Bo Walker.

My dealer said to me as well that he suspected a download and that the download would probably be available before the Box.

I am getting the download / Thanks a lot for all who took the time to post
