Default Does Pro Tools ultimate upgrade include legacy license with surrender?

Does Pro Tools Ultimate upgrade from Pro Tools 11 include legacy license with surrender and is there a perpetual license upgrade option? I ask because i still have plenty of sessions on 10 and 11 I still want access to and I definitely do not want to go subscription. I'm just trying to figure out if I need to buy a completely new Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual license or if I can save the $700 and upgrade but still have access to my old sessions on older versions.

Hi Jeff
I’m not an expert just a user but In my experience the answer is yes, I recently upgraded my PT HD10 perpetual using one of the Upgrade and Support Re instalment licences that are still available from third-party resellers and I can now run 10,11,12 and Ultimate (+ digilink licence)
Avid no longer sell these and I think if you cross grade to a subscription licence you don’t get access to the legacy licences but I can’t confirm that.

AFAIK subscription does not give you access to 10/11/12

All sessions from 10 and 11 should open and run fine in the latest version(as long as they are all NOT saved in SD II format for the PT10 sessions). The only wrinkle in that is that some plugins changed between PT10 and PT11. Worst case; you need to revisit some plugins

Yes, the .ptx session format is compatible. Also the version of AAX in PT10 is 32bit and PT11 and later are 64bit but it is usually not a problem going to the current version; instead, if you for some reason need to use PT10 it has became hard to find those old 32bit AAX installers. Just something you need to be aware of.

And I can confirm if you have sessions with SD2 files you need to convert those to WAV with PT10 or earlier. Would also recommend converting AIF to WAV but that is a bit easier.
