This is what concerns me. If I buy 2 years worth of annual upgrades at $99 each, it will cover me until 9/21. The way this is sounding, it reminds me a lot of Sonar before Cakewalk got sold off. The good part is Sonar still works if I want to use it (no DRM) and there is the free version. I can't see ProTools suddenly being sold and available for free. Just going out of business. And maybe the iLok still working. I am going to be stuck with Cubase. Yuk.

Actually Cubase isn’t that bad... a lil different but pretty good really.... I just prefer the workflow of PT

I'll be standing in PT12 until humanity is extinguished.

I think that maybe because Trump, American companies believe that they can do with people what they want without consequences. The same goes for sinking the development of the 5G in Europe crushing Huawei, than crushing Mexico or Europe with tariffs, than convert ProTools lifetime users in suscriptors with no reason, and with no real update of his software that is worth paying a single dollar more.

As soon as I finish with the album that I am producing, I am going to give a chance to other softwares, because I think I'm getting off the boat.

Congratulations AVID, I have been a ProTools User since 1997 when I was in ProTools III. You got it! I'm out!

Yep, revolting. And amusing at the same time in how unsophisticatedly he's doing it. There's no subtlety or wit. If I were Avid I'd hire a more capable person to work in trying to steer conversations and "brand image". In its current form it's money not well spent, I'd say.

Well, finally time to give a switch to Logic Pro X more serious consideration.

Unfortunately, I can not mix with Logic Pro X, as I need to use all my interfaces and all the outboard gear attached to them. Otherwise, I would give it a chance! Yep!
