Default Carbon now comes with Ultimate?

I only just bought my Carbon at the end of May. Now I learn AVID is including a perpetual Ultimate license with purchases. Any chance AVID will extend that perk to recent purchasers? I expect the answer to be 'no,' and it's going to feel like yet another kick in the gut from AVID.

Where did you see that? According to the Avid website, Carbon comes with regular Pro Tools, not Ultimate. And after the first year, if you choose not to renew, then I believe the extra plugins no longer work.

You can find the offer here on Thomann (German - https://m.thomann.de/de/avid_pro_tools_carbon.htm) You have to purchase between 1. June and 15 September.

It is a nice offer but if you want to stay on a active upgrade plan you have to pay a higher price per year for ultimate in comparison to the normal version.
I prefer the „normal“ version with my carbon. But of course it depends on your own situation what you need for your production.

You actually get both, the Ultimate license is in addition to the stock perpetual included with Carbon: https://vintageking.com/blog/2021/07...-carbon-promo/

Well, 1st of June if Thomann is to believed and 1st July if VintageKing is right.

I'll be happy about one, and not the other..........frankly I'm not sure why they wouldn't give it to all Carbon users - makes resale more straightforward and gets them additional yearly revenue.

That's my thought as well. If they give me the perpetual license, they have a shot at getting my hooked on Ultimate and paying for it every year. They have no shot at getting me to shell out $2600 for the license. MY PT Vanilla is paid up through 2027. I bought multiple years @ $100 per when the price increase was announced a year ago or whenever that was. They won't see any money from me until then as it sits. They can change that and, I agree, it would be a smart business move.

I don't know what Avid are like, but UA often respond favourably to a polite, private request when you are just outside their 'cut-offs'.

Strange all these new avenues at Avid as PTHD has been included with HD card purchases like TDM/HDX/HDN with infterfaces before and this time you get the HD software in a ”special” which I feel should be included anyway.



Vintage King kindly writes ”You get the software for absolutely ”Nothing” …. Only pay the 4000 USD Hahahaha
Gezuzz … No shame these days in advertizement! Do they mean 4000 usd is nothing then …
