iLok "laws" are too tight

This is NOT a subject regarding the presence of or the need for copy protection systems.

It is about unnecessary money driven restrictions when the need for moving licenses and/or iLoks arises. I would like to sell my Pro Tools M-Powered 8 and I'm facing the following situation. I have other licenses stored on the iLok (that came with the product). I will then move these licenses to another iLok, leaving only the M-Powered... more »

Reduce pricing of multiple Avid/Pro Tools systems

I believe if Avid would do something, like reduce cost of software upgrades or extra purchases of Pro Tools software if the owner has multiple Pro Tools system, this would save cost of studios, plus make Avid software more attractive.

For instance, If I had a studio with four Pro Tools systems, I can buy one for the regular price of $500, but each additional license would be about $250, or something to that extent.... more »

License the ICON network Control format

So that you get a revenue stream from:
Smart AV
etc. etc

Perhaps us editors might then get a control surface that is more sophisticated than the Command 8 but smaller than any of the Icons. Also suited to key combo button quickkeys on a touch screen with the ability to patch into an Icon on the Dub stage to do editing changes to the music (for us music editors) without the need to offload... more »

Listen to users

Some of the most popular feature requests on here were originally posted in 2009. Things like track folders, which are available in virtually every other DAW, but even more needed in Pro Tools, where film mixers have several hundred tracks to grapple with. That's a lot of scrolling.

Instead of focusing on things like Atmos integration, which affects a tiny fraction of your users, please implement the features your larger... more »

Application Manager needs Update All option

Updating items in the application manager is an enormous pain. I currently have 18 items that need to be updated. For each of these items, I have to:

* Click Update
* Click Install
* Click five different Agree/Continue/etc. buttons
* Enter my password

That's for each item. There's no need to determine if it can be installed (it's already installed, just tell me if it CAN'T be), accept license agreement (I've already... more »

2nd Generation HD Accel Cards (FPGA/DSP Hybrid)

Even with Computer CPUs becoming more powerful by the day, I think that specialty cards like the HD Accel Cards still have an advantage when connected to Pro Tools. Latency will be lower, the computer will not have to work as hard, and you will have more power overall. By adding a accelerated card will "supercharge" your machine, reducing processes needed for the CPU, letting the cards do all mixing chores. The features... more »

New HD Subscription Model

12.5 HD here, subscription expired end of May, not renewed.
Let alone restart from $999.
Not for the price in itself, but because, really, there's a lot of things I am paying for that I am not using at all.
I am not interested in their support, cloud collaboration, "pro" plugins, and I don't think I am alone here.
So Avid should sell a "basic" HD subscription, $ 180 - $ 200 MAX per year, including just the backbone of... more »

iLok Authorizations should display VERSION NUMBERS.

I would like to see ilok authorizations which said "Velvet 1.3" instead of "Velvet", so that when my "Velvet" suddenly stopped working when I was forced to upgrade to the thousand-dollar version of Pro Tools 10, I would know immediately that it was because I have not also paid the additional $50 Avid wants for me to upgrade from Velvet 1.x.x to Velvet 1.3.

Seeing this version number on ALL my iLok autos would make these... more »

Avid needs to separate hardware and software purchases

If I have any version of the MBox and a full, updated copy of PTLE, why do I have to purchase another full copy of PTLE to gain access to a second MBox form factor? There should be a lower priced hardware-only purchase option that is separate from the software license. This will increase purchases of your lower-end interfaces such as the MBox Micro which are meant to be a method of taking PTLE portable on the same machine... more »
