Many do but I honestly don’t think it will be available for non HD versions. Avid has made HEAT work with non Avid hardware which was a welcome feature but as peolpme who use PT vanilla still feel $99 a year to stay current is too much, and the price of buying a PT 2019 perpetual license basically the same as a HEAT License ... how are those guys and gals gonna motivate that $499 expense .... Probably not happening.

I mean the competitors are soo much cheaper so Avid will most likely keep it HD only.

Our Waves NLS license is for sale if anyone want it. $50 plus $25 transfer fee from iLok.

I see you're point. However I do own a permanent license of Pro Tools (vanilla) and feel quite comfortable paying $99/year to stay current (think is a great deal). And I would buy HEAT for $499 if I could use it on my vanilla Pro Tools With PT Ultimate I don't think I would be so comfortable paying $399/year to stay current.... so for the time being my temptation to upgrade to Ultimate just for HEAT is staying in check... (thanks to everyone who provided tips / suggestions)

When looking into Phoenix 2 plugin I found a hardware equivalent of Avid's HEAT called Crane Song's "HEDD Quantum" http://www.cranesong.com/Hedd_Quantum.html

Seems Dave Hill has been busy... (and I need to find a way to explain to my wife why spending more money on music gear is a good thing)

Yeah I print my mixes through a HEDD-192 too. I'm a big fan of Dave Hill!

HEAT already works on native so next logical step would be allowing it on non-HD (once their marketing dept wants the extra cash)

True that but to be 100% clear with the terminology:

... when people say it works on PT Native we whouldn’t confuse that with Non HD versions as in ”Native” systems as you will always need a PTHD version with or without Avid hardware thanks to the fact they uncoupled HEAT from the need for Avid Hardware when HD12 came out I believe.

true.

so.. currently working on native but requiring HD license. therefore it is only marketing dept decision not allowing HEAT on "vanilla" or first

Today I got a 30 days Trial/Demo of Pro Tools Ultimate and HEAT

So far HEAT makes every audio track sound really good

Still it is such a bummer that I don't really need all the features of Ultimate

Hmm. It makes everything louder. Try doing an A-B test, level-matched. (You may have to print a mix in order to do this.)
