Default Coming back to PT, is it subscription only now?

Forgive me for being out of the loop with AVID, as I left PTHD 8.0 when it was Digi, and am thinking whether to come back to a trial with an iLok2.

Happily using other software and DAW's but maybe need to compile into PT at the end as a deliverable format.

So is PT now only a subscription based product? i know there have been some changes in the AVID purchase model, but just wanted to check.

I think i'd go for the basic PT package, which can now run any interface is that right?

Do you buy PT but then have to pay annual subscriptions for updates?

Thanks in advance

Hey, there are subscription options (monthly and yearly), but you can still buy a perpetual PT license.

Pro Tools 12 perpetual comes with a bundle license that will let you run PT 10/11/12. The subscription only comes with a PT 12 license

Since Pro Tools 9, you can run any audio interface.
