Default Pro Tools Ultimate / HD Reinstatement?

A few years ago we switched most of our music production work over PT12 Native due to the cost of reinstatement for our HD system.

For band tracking we are still using our PT HD Native system running on PTHD 11.

If we were to come up with the $ to do the reinstatement on this system, are there any benefits? We are only doing tracking, no video, no surround.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Main System MBP 2016 (touch strip) 16G Ram.

I own a PTHD 11 which I still use on a native system in main studio (not sure if is worth the $ for reinstatement)

Doing most of my mixing work in PT 12 vanilla.

My personal thought is if your just tracking with it I see no advantage going to the latest. If you start building your mix as you track adding plugins as you go, then maybe. I have and old HD6 Accel rig in a Magma chassis running PT 8 & 10 on a Win 7 PC and a 8 core Mac Pro cheese-grater respectively for tracking and it’s just fine for that. YMMV!

Yea, unless "adding plugins as you go" (as in using same plugin versions on both ends) is a huge factor, then the only advantage of HDN would be 64 i/o limit compared to 32 i/o max for standard software.
