Default Re: B-Stock Carbon 24-bit vs 32-bit

I purchased my b-stock carbon and it was not an issue. It's a 32bit.. Got it thru Alto.



My used Carbon was a bit of a pain but I survived.


The original owner ghosted me in the middle of the transfer process. I even filled out all the paperwork for him to sign etc. Super annoying!

Anyway, I already had a perpetual license and I knew I wasn't getting the PT license with the carbon. So not really a huge deal I just wish I could have it show up in "My Products".

Seems you have two things to get answered
#1 If remember correctly the initial offering on the full price Carbons was either a year extension of an existing license OR the optional "parachute" but not both ?

#2 Eventually Avid changed and decided to simply offer 1 year of Perpetual PT Ultimate which is renewable (but at the Ultimate renew price ) But wether they will honor that on a B Stock is the question
Yeah, I’m checking with Sweetwater since the sale includes an Ultimate license. Will report back!

Yes do so And I would also contact Avid customer support
Because as far as that being "part of sale" It looks to me like the Features section of that Sweetwater B stock page is actually just the boiler plate from the normal 32 bit Carbon page

Hey great and good luck. I still have Ultimate but honestly not sure if I really utilize anything in it beyond what PT Studio offers

Yeah, will have to see if I actually need any of the Ultimate features.

I just received the new license in my account so I have until June to decide if I want to move to Ultimate or renew Studio.

I spent some time setting up templates with effects and headphone mixes. Man, this thing is fun and sounds great!

Eventually it was decided to sell these units as BStock, noting that they run at 24 bit, since some customers would find this more than enough for their needs.

It is simple to identify the 24 bit units by their Part Number, 9900-74103-10, all other deviations of this Part Number are the full 32 bit.

I hope this clears up any confusion!

Mark

Where can I find the part number?
