Default Want to buy PTLE 8 for G5 and MBox2

Help!

I am getting frustrated and confused looking on AVID's site. I bought a used G5 dual 2.3 (late 2005) with 16 Gb of Ram. I have a PC running PTLE 7.1 (registered in my name) that uses the MBox2. Rather than upgrade on the PC, I'd rather go to 8 on the G5.

Can I still purchase the PTLE 8 upgrade for MBox and Digi?

I can't seem to find this anywhere?

Thanks!

Regards//KD

Up until a few days ago, you could. Now it appears they've taken it away.

So I am not imagining this!

Thank you!

Time to get on the horn on Monday and see if something can be done before it's too late or I'll have to switch to something robust that I can stay on the Mac G5 PPC for a while!

Don't even know what direction to go if this is the case. Reaper???

Thanks again!

So I called AVID today and yes, the PTLE 8 Upgrade has been discontinued.

They basically said they could do nothing for me other than recommend I buy it from an authorized dealer that still had one in stock. They didn't know of any.

I went to many sites and when I clicked on the listing..... DEACTIVATED.

Then I found Kelly's Music & Computers. I checked AVID's site to make sure they were authorized and they were. Then I called and they had it in stock. Of course I grabbed it and it will be here soon!

There's an Angel on my shoulder and I like when they help pull things together. Thank you!

If you want one find it and grab it soon!

Yeah.... So after Kelly's assured me they had it in stock, I got two emails today saying it was discontinued and asking if I want 10.

Anubody have any ideas? I've invested too much into this G5 to throw it all away or sell it at a loss.

I may have an extra pro tools 8 LE laying around for Mbox and 002/003.. I have disks going back to Pro tool 4.0. lol.

But i dont know what it would go for. I'd be in the $100 range i guess.

You need 8.0.1 or less if your G5 is PPC. If its intel, you can get 8.0.4 from ebay for $62 plus shipping.

you can message me through my youtube or soundcloud.

thats the ilok for the factory bundle plugins that came extra in pro tools.

Bomb Factory BF-2A
Bomb Factory BF-3A
Fairchild 660 and 670
Purple Audio MC77
Cosmonaut Voice
JOEMEEK SC2 Photo Optical Compressor
JOEMEEK VC5 Meequalizer
Moogerfooger 12-Stage Phaser
Moogerfooger Analog Delay
Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter
Moogerfooger Ring Modulator
SoundReplacer
TL EveryPhase
Tel-Ray Variable Delay
Voce Chorus/Vibrato
Voce Spin


Thats not for Pro tools 8 itself. No Ilok needed for that.
