Default What is included in the PERPETUAL license?

Hey folks..
So, can you tell me what is included in the standard Pro Tools PERPETUAL license?

I'm assuming the plugins bundle isn't, as well as Falcon, Eleven Effects, HEAT and Graphic EQ..

What about the air instruments and effects? What about expand!2?

EDIT: Reading more... it seems everything on this list is included in PERP + Renewals except for the Avid Complete Plugin Bundle and HEAT. Do I have that right? What about Falcon?

As far as I know the only thing missing from my perpetual Ultimate license is Heat.
Also Ultimate Perpetual update is $399/year and Ultimate Sub is $799/year!
A Heat perpetual license is $199!

I don't think I'll be getting Ultimate.. Just the Standard will do me.

Good grief that's expensive :)

Avid Falcon AAX is included in the Software Updates + Support Plan for perpetual licenses. See shop.avid.com/ccrz__ProductDetails?sku=DYNAP20000

Hi guys!

Pro Tools newbie here (longtime Logic user making the jump). I just wanted to clarify that the Complete Plugin Bundle is NOT part of the perpetual license? I just purchased the perp license after my 30-day Ultimate trial ended, and when I opened the project I'd been working on two of the plugins were no longer licensed (Moogerfooger). I thought they'd be included with the license but guessing I need to sub to the Complete bundle separately?

Thanks and sorry for the question that has probably been answered 1000 times on here already.

Welcome to the community.

That is correct. The Avid Complete Plug-In Bundle is a subscription license. It's available separately or included with the following while active:
  • Pro Tools Subscriptions
  • Pro Tools Ultimate Subscriptions
  • Pro Tools Ultimate Software Update Plans
The store pages for Pro Tools Perpetual and Subscription list what's included.

The complete plugin bundle is only available to PTU if you have the support plan unless I'm missing something. I deactivated my support plan but not my PTU license and several of the plugins in the complete plugin bundle is now asking me to activate a license. If the complete plugin bumdle is included in PTU without the support plan then tell me what am I doing wrong Jeffro?

That is correct, sorry that my post wasn't clear. The Avid Complete Plug-In Bundle is a subscription license so is active with current Pro Tools Ultimate Software Update Plans (for perpetual licenses) and Subscriptions. I'll update my previous post to clarify this.

You can see already the main difference between Logic Pro and Pro Tools just by these few posts, and it has nothing to do with the app itself.

In Logic, it is a one time purchase and every update is free including everything.
In my case, it was a $199 investment for over 7 years.

The problem with Pro Tools, or lets say AVID, that many user are very vocal about it is the nickel-and-dime mentality of Avid. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong to charge a premium price for a professional app, but the constant change of the fine print to figure out what you get and what you don't get is just insane. Or what features are blocked on the Standard version and only available in the Ultimate vision (which also is a moving target).

Unfortunately the beancounter at AVID haven't figured out yet how to survive with the proper cashflow to keep the company alive. There newest bet is to push everybody to the subscription model. That's why you see all these "disadvantages" (or punishments) if you don't sign up for the subscription model. Oh yes, then there is the extra charge for additional voice. That's not how make friends.
