We've been impressed by Avid's willingness to reach out to the Pro Tools community over user concerns about pricing. It shows a desire to listen and wherever possible to make changes to policy.
It has happened before, when we raised the issue of the Structure fix being paid for, Avid put it right. So I have faith that even if they may have misjudged public opinion on Pro Tools 10, that if they can they may do something to put it right.
If you've yet to submit a question, then visit our Facebook page and make sure you have it in by 6:00pm GMT tonight. Then Max Gutnik from Avid will try and address those questions for us all. I'm going to make it clear that any 'we can't discuss that as we a public company' answers are simply not good enough and frankly unhelpful.
So in anticipation of a possible change of heart at Avid, I've put together another poll to ask 'What Would Tempt You To Buy Pro Tools 10 Now?'
I can't guarantee anything of the sort is even possible, but at least it gives Avid an idea of how they can scratch this itch.
