I have a perpetual license for HD Native and I'm preparing to jump ship after acquiring as many of the Tier 3 plugins as possible. When support renewal rolls around, so far I haven't choked too bad when I ante up ... but 'upgrade' pickings have been pretty slim. I'm not going to go on forever.

I also think there is a little confusion about some comments of Avid doing away with perpetual licenses. I am pretty sure that means they might stop selling new ones, not that they cease honoring those that are out there. The lawsuits would be crippling.

Also, I believe Avid really only cares about PT in support of its hardware products. Those are what it really wants to sell and PT has to remain defensibly competitive to keep that engine chugging.

Anyway, anyone up to commenting on Heat or pointing me via link to good discussions will be greatly appreciated.
IMHO Heat sounds great. No surprise given the design heritage.

However, it is well overpriced in today's market considering the proliferation of affordable alternatives. Secondly is the expense of upgrading or subscribing to the latest version of Pro Tools to get compatibility.

The big question still stands:

Has there been no movement on this?

From where are you getting this information? Or is it just a hunch?

From Avids site itself.... 2019.6 release notes might be a good place to look

But HEAT has been around for quite a long time, since long before the release of 2019.6. The question is whether the licenses deposited in subscribers' accounts will support HEAT on older versions of HD/Ultimate.

I guess that would depend if in those earlier versions actually included HEAT. Then you might be like the rest of us and have to pay for it. And that wasn’t your original question you asked where did I get the “hunch” where HEAT is supported in 2019.6 and I pointed you in the right direction.

No. This was my original question:

Please stop derailing this. Pro Tools HD 12.8.3. HEAT was already old by the time that was released.

Huh? Derailing this?..... So now you’re talking about HD/Ultimate? I’m confused btw old is good if it still works right?

I’m not really sure I understand what you are really on about as you seem to jump from one angle to another.... like I said for Pro Tools (standard/vanilla/neutered or whatever you want to call it) has as of 2019.6 now able to run HEAT (as per 2019.6 release notes) where as previous versions needed a HD/Ultimate lic.

It seems like you're very purposefully misinterpreting my question. To put it in the most straightforward of terms...

Avid will be depositing licenses for HEAT into the accounts of all Pro Tools subscribers. Naturally, any subscriber using the latest version of Pro Tools—whether Ultimate or not—will be able to use HEAT. What is not clear is whether subscribers using older, legacy versions of Pro Tools that support HEAT—HD/Ultimate only until 2019.6, and both versions thereafter—will also be able to use HEAT with their newly-received license.
