Default The Ultimate Pairing...

So while the Pro Tools Perpetual Parachute was a cool idea, it was (obviously) complicated in practice.

So as of today, ALL new Carbon activations will come with Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual instead of the Pro Tools Studio Perpetual Parachute.

The parachute will continue to work in it's parachuty way.

For those of you who missed the promo with PT Ultimate Perpetual but have purchased a Carbon... we got you covered too.

You should be receiving an email sometime today to let you know you have a new Pro Tools Ultimate Perpetual license available in your Products Not Yet Downloaded section of your MyAvid account.

Hopefully this will simplify some of the PT questions associated with Carbon and give you a larger toolset to play with.

ENJOY!

This makes a lot of sense. However does that mean I won't be able to get my perpetual parachute re-instated!? I already own an Ultimate license and was hoping to just renew the Carbon license.

Thank You Mark and The Avid Team for this

Makes much more sense even if it is a 2500K ”Gift” imho of course

Mark just said the Studio Parachute will work as usual aka ”Parachuty way”

Just renewed ours and the ultimate license too so no probs there

I think this is a smart idea from every angle. I was surprised Avid didn't realize it was a great idea back when it was only a promotion. Between this and releasing Pro Tools Intro, that's two great moves in a row, both of which not only generate a lot of positivity for the brand, but have the potential to turn into regular revenue for the company. Well done!

Yep, Parachute will continue to be renewable and be "parachute-y"

Mark, could you clarify if all Carbon owners (old and new) will ultimately have a Pro Tools Ultimate license?

Which is :

Ultimate or studio perpetual parachute owners can at any time reinstate their support for 1 year.

Which is great by the way, it would be awesome if we could do it via Avid itself and not a reseller.

At present moment it seems I can reinstate support for both Studio and Ultimate from my account.

Is it Possible despite Avid CS told me I could only renew through a reseller for Studio, and via Avid Account for Ultimate?

Thanks!
