Based upon what I've been allowed by Avid to know about Pro Tools "12", I would advise Avid's accounting department to keep an eye on the Weather Channel. When you start to see frost warnings in hell...
I am also moving a greater proportion of my work to alternative DAWs oeing to remaining instability issues with Pro Tools 11.
In my opinion it is not fair to the owners of Pro Tools 11 had to buy a support plan for $ 199 / Eur 189. I paid twice these amount just four weeks before the announcement of the new support plan.
All owners of Pro Tools 11 and Pro Tools 11 HD should have a new support plan until 03.2016 as a part of the upgrade which they have bought previously (they have paid more money than those who benefit from the promotion).
Is there any possibility that the Avid board would hear such an opinion?
