Default To HEAT or not to HEAT?

Is HEAT really worth it? Will HEAT ever be available on native Pro Tools (non Ultimate)?

Currently I am tempted to upgrade from Pro Tools (vanilla flavor) to Pro Tools Ultimate just to have access to HEAT.

Any suggestions/comments from the community would be greatly appreciated !

I'm gonna be the first to put it my contentious opinion and say I don't get on with it. I've only ever tried adding after I've mixed though, never tried mixing with it on from the start. Also it doesn't work with instrument tracks so seems bit pointless if you've got a lot of VIs running.

Agree with some of Midnight points above!

We use it now and then but have fallen for other plugins that works on VI tracks too which is muy importante para nosotros seeing we use many VI tracks on every session so having to use HEAT on audio and other options on Instrument traxx is a bit annoying and if we want HEAT on all tracks we have to bounce to audio and redo that everytime we wanna change anything on a instrument track.

Also not working on non HD so no go with vanilla.

Also nr 2 it is not worth $500 and for less than $200 you can find alternatives that are Awesome!

So ... I would recommnend trying out other plugins for the HEAT on your traxx and there are some super great option today. Remember that HEAT is pretty old and still Avid wants $499 which is wayyy too much IMHO of course.

What other alternatives to HEAT can you guys recommend? I'm running Pro Tools native (no HDX or Avid hardware) - thanks in advance!

I use this, very happy with it, great results, great price. The difference between the 64 channels adds a lot of (welcome) unpredictability to the sound in the box

Thanks - well I don't really use VI (virtual instruments) since I mostly I record analog synths, guitar, voices and an analog drum machine. So HEAT may help with tape-like or tube-like saturation for all of them! But I'm not so sure about spending so much just to get HEAT (but I would buy HEAT right now if HEAT was supported on non-Ultimate Pro Tools)

So you end up with non-heated vocals with everything else heated? Kind of whacks the finely tuned balances out, no? Or maybe you're running Heat from the get-go on everything except the vocals? Still can't really get my head around the best way of implementing it.

I record into melodyne with it bypassed, do my tuning then commit the track to a new track and enable heat.
