Hi Guys anybody knows how much is it to buy PT 12 or PT 12 HD (software only) for a new user?

HD software is only available with HD hardware purchase

12 is not out yet (should be in the next 30 days), 11 is $700USD

If you buy PT11 with the support plan, you automatically receive upgrades to whatever new versions come out within a year.

I didn't realize 12 was coming so soon. I had it in my head that we would see it around Nov-Dec.

I say buy a new Eleven Rack for $600 or so which comes with PT 11, then add a $199 support plan when 12 comes out. It's roughly the same price as the software by itself. YMMV!

But the Eleven Rack does not come with a Support Plan READ the Avid FAQ section

http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/e...-Licensing-FAQ

please note that new Pro Tools (e.g. Eleven Rack) and Pro Tools | HD hardware system purchases do not come with an upgrade and support plan (do not include a free v12 Upgrade), but a separate plan can be purchased.

BUT the street price of PT 11 with a support plan and and a FREE PT 12 upgrade is only $300.00

Seems you might have missed that line of his post.

If you can point out some of these 300$ licenses with support plans, I would like to snag a few up considering I have never seen one around here. On that subject, does the FAQ address transferring support plans?? I know it says you cant with "upgrade" plans, whatever those are...

You can get Pro Tools 11 licenses for around $330 from some retailers, but I have yet to see them at that price with a support plan.

I can't remember who mentioned they were quoted $4000 for PT HD11 native and an omni but it might be still possible.
