Default Re: Current State of Exchange Program

The only reason Avid would offer a trade in, is to get legacy gear off the market. I personally don't think they have any motivation to do that at this point. The driving factor will be if folks go for PTHD11, if lots of folks do, there is little reason for them to offer an upgrade route, if not too many do, due to the investment required to make the move, then they will.

I am basing that off my years of experience buying and selling HD systems. I bought tons of Mix Cards years back, and used those to upgrade to HD, then sold the HD systems for a profit. All legit as transfers of ownership were done in each case. In 2008 I was getting 4500.00 easy for an HD1, while paying only 3500.00 for the Mix Cards and HD2.
HD Native Pcie, PTHD 11, PT12 Vanilla, Omni, Lynx Aurora 16, 192 I/O (16 in/8 out), 24 Fader D-Command, lots of preamps and compressors.

MacPro 5.1 (12) Core (2009 MacPro 8 Core Upgraded to a 12 Core MacPro), 56 Gig Ram, SSD System & 3 - 2TB Drives, OSX 10.9.5, Windows 10 Via Bootcamp
