Default Is there a PT 9 upgrade for music production toolbox?

I checked to see how or if I can upgrade my music production toolbox to work with Pro Tools 9 but when I searched on the Avid site for Music Production Toolbox the search came back empty. Have they discontinued this affordable gem and replaced it with only the 2 grand complete production toolbox? Which would be too bad. When I upgraded from a Digi 002 to 003 the MPT came with the package and it's been an invaluable tool. Sounds like some of its features are now incorporated into PT 9 but I saw nothing about the new version including killer plug-ins like TL Space.

Looks like its gone, all those features have been put into PT9, except TC Verb, which can be bought on eBay for 50 bucks.

Info is in the Pro Tools 9 FAQ.

Sorry, I accidentally posted this in the TDM forum.

Q: Will there be upgrade options for DV Toolkit 2 and Music Production Toolkit 2 owners to upgrade to Complete Production Toolkit 2?
A: Yes, there are two options for existing toolkit owners to upgrade to the new Complete Production Toolkit 2:
Sorry, I posted this accidentally in the TDM forum.
  • DV Toolkit 2 owners may upgrade to Complete Production Toolkit 2 for $299
  • Music Production Toolkit 2 owners may upgrade to Complete Production Toolkit 2 for $1,599
Thanks for the quick response!

I wasn't asking about MPKT 2 to Complete but MPKT 2 towards PT9.

The faq said that there was a free upgrade to PT 9 if it was purchased on or after Oct 4 but I could find no mention of a discounted rate if we bought the MPTK 2 before that date towards PT9.

Thanks.

I saw someone post this DigiTechSupport quote in another section of the forum. It looks like they're going to e-mail us with a different upgrade offer. They did the same when MPTK2 came out.

EDIT: But now that I read through the last few of Tech's posts, it looks like it was in reference to the Complete upgrade. Guess I'm giving in tonight.

Or,

B./ they'll offer a $99.00 upgrade to PT 9 for MPTK 2 owners who bought the kit before October.
Can I have 2 B's please

The good news for those staying on Pt 8, MPTK track expansion iLok licenses will be selling for about 10 bucks on eBay soon.

Actually, the only features from the MPTK 2 that have been put into PT 9 are the tracks/beat detective, and the mp3 option.
TL Space, Smack, Eleven, and Structure LE aren't included in PT 9.
For THOSE assets, one must visit:
www.AirUsersBlog.com/Bargain-Basement or (heaven forbid) eBay
