Default How Do You Subscribe to ProTools 12

I am an Artist and I simply need a DAW that I can record my written music to and send to my management team. Because we are working remotely and I am still working in the secular world as my Music Career takes off (which is happening faster than I realize), I need to have my own DAW on my laptop.
I have all the hardware, but up until now I've been downloading the PT's 11 trial versions but my Ilok won't allow me to use it for the trial versions anymore.

The question is where and how do I download PT 12 and be able to use my Ilok for it?
Is PT's 12 compatable with 11 and if so, can someone that does not have 12 still open my music as long as I don't add any MIDI's? -AND-
Will my production team on the other end be able to open up my "tracked out" versions that I bounce to them if they don't have ProTools12 but have 10, or 11?

And overall what is your opinions of the software?

Sessions are completely interchangeable between 11 and 12.

For anyone to access your tracked out song, you don't want to bounce, you'd instead send them the entire PT session including all audio files.

Thanks Drew... Great! Now how do I download the ProTools 12 that is set up on monthly payments? I know I should buy the software, but can't I just get the monthly version where you pay monthly?

Once you purchase in the store, you likely get a code to redeem in your Avid acct. You'll want to set one of those up, it's easy. You'll download from there.

Buy or subscribe is up to you. Do you only need to use PT once in while during writing cycles? Sub might be good. There's no right way.

Yeah, start by creating an Avid act and an iLok.com acct. You'll need both.

Then purchase at the store. The store will give you a code to redeem which you'll do inside your Avid acct. An asset will be delivered to your iLok acct. You'll download that to your iLok. Oh yeah, you'll need one of those!!

Sounds like a lot, but it's not too bad once you set it all up. Blame all those people that steal software for all the hoops you have to jump through.

Alternatively, you could buy through an Avid dealer in your area. Their expertise could help make all this easier for you as well. That's their job.

Yes... I have an Ilok I bought from the Guitar Store.. but I had been using the trial versions of PT and it expired. But I can use my Ilok with a new purchase by putting in my Ilok manager account info when I make the purchase.. I see. Thank you!

Default NEW Thread

Why can't I see the new thread button to start a new thread? Crazy... I need help making each track the length of the song so that I can send the file to have it mastered.

Any advise on both questions... :) grrrr. :)
