Default Upgrading to the current version - Questions

OK,.. I'm still running LE 5.3.2 with XP Pro-Svc Pack_01.


I believe I want to upgrade soon.

Now,.. how do I go about doing this upgrade as easily as possible?

I don't want to lose my plug-in's or my plug-in settings, and I don't want to have to re-install them.
Also,.. will I be getting any more/new plug-in's with the upgrade?

I'm a bit confused and I don't know where to start. Digi makes this upgrade proces very annoying and frequent,.. so it's hard to stay current with the updates/upgrades and still actually produce and make music. If you happen to miss one of the upgrades then you end up having to pay for a big jump,.. or,... I realise if I had waited 3 months then I could have gotten a huge amount of free plug-in's. I'm expecting I may have to pay,.. but I want to find out what's involved in the transition/upgrade and exactly what I'm getting out of it first.

Any help is much appreciated!! Thanx in advance!!!!!!!!

Why do you want to upgrade?

If it is working fine maybe you should just enjoy it and focus on recording intead of messing with a computer.

I'm messing with my computer since I went from 6.1.1 to 6.4.... 6045 errors.

Well,... from the things I have heard about the improved midi support and also some of the new audio functions like the "Beat Detective" and Timestretching,.. it would be a great improvement.

So I'm pretty sure I want to upgrade and just get it out of the way. After this upgrade,.. the only thing I could wish for is maybe a MIDI Arpreggiator and more than 32 tracks (which I doubt that will happen).

I'm in the middle of doing a decent sized overhaul of my studio and I'd like to include this in the process. I just got a new (secondary) hard drive, some more ram,.. Getting a second monitor to have a dual headed workstation. I'm installing soundproofing/treatments,.. putting a new workstation desk in there as well as some synth and other hardware additions I've recently done. I'm refining my studio into more of a professional/custom environment instead of it being a room that all my gear is in. I want it to be a refined and well oiled machine. I just want to get this upgrade over with as easily as possible and include it in the overhaul.

The absolute best and safest way for you to upgrade is to remove your system drive and pop in a new drive and do a fresh load of XP, do all the system tweaks then restart. Now load in PT6.7>restart and test. When that works fine, load all your extra plugins. I like to restart and test after each disk/bundle. I know it seems like extra work, but it has worked very well for me. And if all hell breaks loose and you need to work, just re-install your old drive and you are right back where you left off.
