Default Re: Very concerned about buying an Eleven Rack

Here's what to ask the seller to check:
  1. Turn it on
  2. Press/hold the EDIT/BACK button until User Options come up.
  3. Turn the SCROLL knob clockwise to get to Firmware Version
  4. Press SW1.

I'd look for one that has the expansion pak already added, but if you cant figure that out before hand, or get a good deal on one, you can buy the expansion pack: https://www.avid.com/plugins/eleven-rack-expansion-pack

What @nedoram said. Check if the 11R has the expansion pack installed, very worth it. The expansion pack is $100, so better have it already installed then having to pay for it. I think I bought mine also around 2012 and it was already installed.

Default Re: Very concerned about buying an Eleven Rack

Hi,
I just purchased a used eleven rack last weekend.
When I check the firmware on the machine itself, it says "REV 0510".
I'm guessing that's pretty old. On one of the software programs that has the Eleven rack picture, I believe it said 1.11.1.



Since this machine is used and has already been registered, I'm guessing it's going to be nearly impossible to get the expansion pack and editor, correct?


I checked the thread where people were requesting new serial numbers and opening a ticket with avid, but the last response is 2016.


I don't use PRO tools with it. I run directly out of the line level outputs into my Tascam DP32sd and its sounds great. However, I would like to get the expansion pack and editor so I don't have to keep editing my different rigs on the unit itself.


Is it a lost cause for me to purchase the ex pack and try and install it?


Computer is a laptop running win 10.
Thanks in advance.

It's $100 to buy and download from https://www.avid.com/plugins/eleven-rack-expansion-pack.

If for some reason it doesn't work (which I doubt) you could ask Avid for a refund.

There are PLENTY of units out there with the Expansion pack in them. I have owned one for years and its a great sounding unit. Not sure how it compares to your old Line 6, but it faithfully models the tones I need. If you're a total death metal head like my son- go get an Axe FX. we have one of those as well and it's incredible for metal tones- nothing better- but it's 10X the money of a used Eleven rack.

I just found out that my friend has a used Eleven Rack and he is willing to let my try it out and he'll sell it to me if I like it.


I'm looking forward to testing it.
