We've been getting some messages into PTE HQ asking us why Pro Tools HD is missing from the Avid web store and if some news is coming.
We've reached out to a contact at Avid who gave us this response off the record:
"The web store team is removing all Pro Tools Upgrade and Support Plans (HD and regular) and launching the Pro Tools Plan Renewals and Reinstatement products today."
We have been told that moving forward there will be the following:
- Annaul Upgrade and Support Plan. $599
- Upgrade and Support Plan HD (Renewal) for those who are on a Pro Tools plan. $399
- Upgrade and Support Plan HD (Reinstatement) for those who are not on a Plan. $999
The web store should be updated soon to reflect those changes. In fact what is happening is exactly what Avid said would happen, the 2015 upgrade deals have ended.
Pro Tools HD owners can rest assured that it's not going away any time soon.
