Default Coming back to Protools.

I am using Ableton and Reaper for sound design, and music to picture having left the old PT 8.0 HD back in 2008.

I see that things have changed alot with no LE HD and AAX, plus realtime bounce etc.

I am wondering whether to dip my toe into the PT world again just for the editing and delivering PT sessions which are standard in TV / Film

I know there is a PT free coming but have heard its quite limited, with no save, no import of other sessions etc.

I am thinking of maybe starting out to use PT again as a stereo editor on my finished tracks to familiarize myself with PT again. I am currently using Twisted Wave on the Mac as a 2-track editor, but maybe I should jump into PT to do the same sort of functions and at the same time learn PT, so i can progress at my own rate to full multi-track sessions from Logic/Ableton/Reaper that i use?

Upgrade v8 HD to v10 HD. This does not get you to v11 or v12. Your other point of entry would be Pro Tools v12 (which includes v11) for $199, which includes one year of support/upgrades. Beyond year 1, you will have to renew your support/upgrade plan. Otherwise, when you want to upgrade to the first version beyond v12, you will have to pay $199 again.

I should explain that I sold my PT rig, so no longer have v8 or any version of PT.

So am looking at coming back as a new customer.

Im just hoping that PT could start out as a good audio editor for me and then prgress from there or is Twisted wave a better option?

Why wouldn't you try it out yourself? There is a free trial, you only need to invest in an iLok2 license key if you don't have one already. Within a month you should know whether it's good for you or not.
