Default selling MBox after crossgrade

I bought the new Mbox a couple months ago just to use PTLE with my current gear, but have better pres/converters. So, I want to do the crossgrade to PT9 and then sell the Mbox. However, the new buyer would not be eligible for the crossover. How much would this devalue the asking price? How would the new user get future software upgrades? Would they forever have to pay $599 for PT9?

Default Re: selling MBox after crossgrade

Yes, just give them PT8 with the Mbox. If they choose to want PT9. they will have to pay for it. Plenty of folks out there will be quite happy with 8(not everyone needs the new goodies). As for support, you could download(or offer to) all the various updaters and burn them onto a CD-R(but you might need to grab both PC and Mac versions). Or keep PT8 and the Mbox and use them with a laptop
