Re: Some prepurchase questions

Well, I got my Carbon. I decided to set it up on my Mac Book Pro 16” i9, 8-core instead of the Mac mini. Everything went smoothly. I got my licenses all set up and received my Ultimate Perpetual...

Re: Some prepurchase questions

I’ll just be recording myself and maybe my wife will do some vocals. On occasion friends asked me to record their bands, but that hasn’t happened in some time, now that you can use a cell phone to...

Re: Some prepurchase questions

Thanks albee1952 and thank you Kev for all your insight both on the DUC and that other forum. I should receive my Carbon on Monday and I’m really trying to decide if it’s the right choice before I...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

Thanks K Roche, I see what you’re saying and I hope that’s the case. PT hasn’t been my main DAW since 2011. I tried to keep it updated over the years but lost it at the end of 2019. Lately I’ve been...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

I kind of agree with spinsong. Avid could release a completely new Pro Tools that is not compatible with any of the unused renewals or not yet active perpetual licenses. One that would be...

Re: Some prepurchase questions

Well, it would seem I would get less latency using the MOTU 1248 connected via thunderbolt, with the Carbon’s ADAT into the 1248. I could then use the Carbon’s pres with thunderbolts low latency. I...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

For those like me that hate subscriptions, what is a reasonable amount you would pay annually to consider going subscription? For standard PT, I think I would accept $150 + 50 for all plugins So $200...

Re: Some prepurchase questions

Hi digiot, thank you for answering my questions. I’m definitely keeping my 1248. I tested the AVB on it yesterday and I was getting 9.4 ms roundtrip at 64 buffer size. I hope the Carbon can do better...

Re: 115 AAX plugins included?

Thanks for your response. That is definitely one way to think about it but my statement was more of a generalization. I’m aware that Ultimate is free at the moment but not forever and as far as the...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

So, what I said above is not entirely correct. I was reading through the FAQs and found this which is actually a very generous deal. Thank you Avid!

Q: After I register my Carbon audio...

Re: 115 AAX plugins included?

I will answer my own question here since I just read the FAQ which I should have done in the first place. It looks like if I let the included 1-year subscription/plan expire into perpetual, I will...

Some prepurchase questions

I ordered a Carbon but they are on back order at the moment. That gives me some time to make sure this is the right choice for me. Here are a few questions that I have before I really commit.

115 AAX plugins included?

Quick question

The sales page for carbon at online retailers states that it Includes 115 AAX DSP plugs from the Avid Complete Collection. Now along with the free Perpetual Ultimate license, do you...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

I guess now I’m being a bit cynical. I’ve been using Pro Tools since version 4 and have put up with all the shenanigans from Digidesign and Avid over the years, but nothing compared to the betrayal...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

I hear ya, I was toying with the idea of possibly purchasing a PT Carbon with the PT Ultimate perpetual license included. The offer states that the software has to be registered by 12/31/21. So, they...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

Thanks JFreak, I emailed my Sweetwater engineer at the beginning of the week to see if they had any reinstatements for expired licenses or any deals on a new perpetual license but he never got back...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

Thank you. I guess I thought you were talking about renewals for an expired license. There are no renewals for an expired perpetual license that I can see other than the education one. It looks like...

Re: Promo for perpetual license holders

Hi G4GTOBOY, What retailers still have the old perpetual Update and Support licenses? And does anyone know if they will still work? My perpetual license expired at 2019.10. Any info would be...
