Default question about PT LE, 9, 11 upgrades/crossgrades

about a year ago I crossgraded my PT 8 LE, that came with my 003 rack to PT 9. so I have 1 PT 9 license on my ilok, now I want to upgrade to 11 the cheapest way

and

I own PT 8 LE software with a code(no ilok, no hardware)
I also own PT 7.4 LE software with a code(no ilok, no hardware)
and I own an eleven rack that came without pro tools.

my question is: what would be my best option to upgrade to 11?
and can I reuse my 003 or use my eleven rack to crossgrade LE to 11(so i can keep PT9)?

thnx!

grtz,
Jur

Use the Eleven Rack serial if its not been used previously. The old PTLE auth codes are worthless except for running PTLE.

Is there a reason you want to keep PT9? PT11 gives you a license for PT10, if you're just concerned about certain plugins not being AAX yet.

thnx for the replies!
just realized that my eleven rack was 2nd hand and have no way of knowing if it is even registered already(cant check that?)

only reason to keep PT 9 would be the ability to run PT on muliple machines or give it to someone else.

guess no other option then to upgrade from 9...

thnx all!

All I can suggest would be trying the upgrade path and seeing if it will take the serial. Unfortunately there's no serial number upgrade checker.

worth the try...
I've send an transfer of ownership form to the previous 11 rack owner.
then I came across the following note in the transfer document:

"Please note: Purchasers of previously owned software licenses are not entitled to upgrades, license replacements, install media, or support at
no charge. Pro Tools HD upgrades are only available to customers who own a compatible Avid hardware product and/or previous qualifying
software license." also bundled software is nontransferable

so I'm not 100% sure..

That paragraph does not apply to your situation. Neither does the transfer of ownership process.

You just need to find out from him if he used the Eleven Rack serial number for the LE crossgrade. That's it. If he did, then you can't use it. If he didn't, then you can use it. Nothing else is applicable.

If you still want to have him do the transfer of ownership, that's fine. The only benefit to that will be if there's ever a safety recall (you will be notified), or if there is an Avid hardware exchange offer in the future that might apply (like if they come out with an Eleven Rack v.2, and offer a trade-in discount to current Eleven Rack owners).

But none of that has any bearing on this serial number question.
