MPTK2 has superceded v1.

If you check out the buy and sell section there were some licenses to be had on the cheap by EJ Wells a few weeks back.

You might also check with any local music store such as Sam Ash or Guitar Center. It's possible they may still have the Music Toolkit 1 on a clearance price. My local Sam Ash does. If you buy that, it's still considered brand new from an authorized dealer and you will be eligible to upgrade to Music Toolkit 2 for free (This would not be the case if you bought the individual Ilok license second hand).

I thought it was 50 bucks. http://shop.avid.com/store/product.d...88865113900224. Or is that if you previously owned it.

Yes, that's if you previously owned it already.

Once version 2 was released, if any stores still have version 1, and you buy it from them brand new, you're entitled to the upgrade free. Same thing for the DV Toolkit. In my case I had gotten the old DV Toolkit 2 (with Vocalign) on clearance after the new Version 2 was released, so I got the upgrade for free (the only difference being that it added X-Form).

It's the same concept as when you buy an LE interface (003, mbox 2) new from a dealer, but it's been sitting on the shelf for a while and has 7.3 in the box. You're entitled to PT8 for free.

I mention this because if you can find Version 1 left in any stores, it's usually on a clearance price like $295, $265, etc. So it's a good deal if you can find it.

Yea, same as PT 8. I got 7.4 after 8 and got free upgrade.
