Thanks for the understanding guys and i didn’t mean to point a finger at anyone and say shut up! I just asked that we dont get this thread closed as it has happened before when people (me included) starts to go off topic too much but I am 100% with you that the transparency is non existant and having users guessing all the time what we need to pay for next release or renewal is really annoying and unfair IMO. Avid should let us know when the target for Catalina support for example is planned so we can make a proper informed decision kn what to buy and what not to buy and so on.

All the secrecy and hush hush is not how I would ever run my company and with very FEW TWEAKS Avid would be a GREAT company and keep us all wanting more but this is not the correct way of pleasing paying customers wheather you have 50 HD licenses or 1 Vanilla license. Should not matter one bit! A customer is a customer and played correctly the ones who have not invested a lot yet would probably do so way more later on in life and stay loyal but with this way of treating the shrinking customerbase people are too informed these days and have never had so much choices and they will look elsewhere.
Best Regards

This is actually a great question. My answer was a guess. Can we get a mod or admin to chime in?

Sweetwater has the reinstatement for $199 right now.

I am so angry with myself, that i jumped after my tdm experience into HDX.
The only way to use the DSPs is Protools Ultimate. Now Avid makes the next step to destroy their perpetual licence option. Why is this change necessary??? Every perpetual owner paid 2499 $ for PTU. Is this not enough... The most users are paying this 399 yearly "nonsense"... So why is avid making this move. Do they need more money... 2499+399 per year is not enough???... Avid want to copy Adobe and they think, they will get more money with subscription...

I have more PTU licences, but i think, i will fade out the rest and keep only one PTU licence with the plan, cause i am a HDX User and i stay with it, but Avid is dead for me now. I have Cubase Pro, Logic X, Live... And i will change my workflow and keep Protools for mixing. I am an oldschool guy and i have no problem to pay for upgrades like Cubase Pro 10.5 and more, cause for 59 $ Steinberg brought more features, than protools in 2 years... Padshop 2, spectral comparison Eq to compare the tracks and more... Avid is so slow with updates and new features... I remember, that Avid said; The change to yearly fees help to deliver bug fixes and new features faster, than the upgrade system. So the truth is. The whole process is as slow as with the upgrade system... I will use my HDX System, but slowly i will change everything... Nuendo is a good alternative in Post Pro and for composing and producing music, Cubase or Logic or even Studio One are better choices... Protools will die. Maybe Media Composer is the main "horse" in Avids product cosmos...
