I plan on mixing every single track in surround, and am currently looking at buying a carbon due to it's free bundle of PT Ultimate perpetual & UVI Falcon 2....



Are both those offers still on the table ?

Default Re: PT Ultimate License Granted with Carbon

About a year ago, Avid gave
"Pro Tools Ultimate Free To All Existing Pro Tools Carbon Owners"

https://www.pro-tools-expert.com/hom...-carbon-owners

There may be some Carbon owners who already owned PT Ultimate, who only want to hold on to their non-transferrable promo version - and don’t need their 2nd license.
You could post a “WTB – Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual” in the Buy & Sell forum: https://duc.avid.com/forumdisplay.php?f=12
- and you could state “T.O.O. Form” (transfer of ownership) required - this costs $80 extra, but is only necessary if you need your Pro Tools Ultimate license registered in your Avid Master Account
https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/ar...S/FAQ/en363631
There's also the iLok Transfer fee - check if this is $25 or $50, as it's a "Bundle" license

You can Google the following (italicised) line to see what’s currently available in the Buy & Sell forum:
FS – Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual – site: duc.avid.com


Pro Tools DigiLink I/O license
https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/ar...-O-license-for

https://avid.secure.force.com/pkb/ar...se-Eligibility

https://www.avid.com/licenses/pro-to...ink-io-license



Sure is lousy news to greet anyone on their first DUC post - but, welcome to the forum, anyway!



If 30 days is enough for you to mix every single track in surround:

Word
LOL


I hope they do the promo again, alot of indie/small studios and home studios might jump on the Carbon+Ultimate + Falcon promo if they do it again.



It was very attarctive at $3500-$3995, with ultimate, CARBON, and Falcon2, and Ultimate already having surround ability... compared to the Apollo X series offers at or below that price point, and the development of LUNA possibly gaining 5.1/7.1 in 2022, but maybe not 9.1 AMBEO or 11.1 ATMOS anytime soon.


Will mull over these two options again and keep my eyes peeled for deals.

Note that Carbon is only stereo at the moment. Avid has not announced any plans to make Carbon a Surround Sound interface yet.


UVI Falcon has been included with the PT Update and Support Plan for a few years now though it looks like that will end soon.


The promo that expired on Dec. 31, 2021, added a PT Ultimate License and AutoTune Hybrid (AAX-DSP version) plugin to the included plugin bundle of a Carbon purchase.


Yes, it was very attractive for me at $3399. That's why I pulled the trigger in December and haven't looked back.

WOW.

I guess I’ll just sit on my wallet the rest of this year.
