Please note that Pro Tools | First has been discontinued, but you can experience the full creative power of Pro Tools—with access to all features—by downloading the free 30-day trial.
A 30-day trial is not a substitude for Pro Tools | First. I now get "License expired"! As I'm only a hobbiest who don't earn money with making music for my own fun I am not willing to pay 28€/Month (336€/Year).

BTW: Download is still possible: https://my.avid.com/esd/Product/Information/115
I would need only the possibility to register Pro Tools | First into my iLok License Manager.

That is correct, if you already have PT | First registered, you can download it from your My Avid account. New registrations however are no longer possible.

From M-Audio I got only the link https://my.avid.com/get/pro-tools-first-maudio which still than shows:


Pro Tools | First maintenance

Pro Tools | First is temporarily unavailable for technical reasons. While we fix the problems, please take Pro Tools for a spin by getting your free trial.


There is nothing, where I can register it!

You can't. As mentioned, it has been discontinued.

I have Pro Tools first registered on my Avid account, downloaded and installed. When running it it asks for my Avid login, entered. Says no ilok activations available. Why do I still have access to it if I cant use it?

Default Re: Pro Tools | First: Discontinued

If you don't NEED Pro Tools, don't feel pressured into buying it. For those on a tight budget, Pro Tools is a poor choice. Here are some very capable alternatives:
Cuckos Reaper-free to try and dirt cheap to buy($60 for hobbyists).
Cakewalk by Bandlab(formerly called Sonar)-free
Garageband(Mac only)-free
Logic Pro(Mac only)-$200

Garageband is a modest step up from PT First but the rest are on par with regular Pro Tools.
