    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 10 with Free Upgrade to Pro Tools 11:

    ive always steered away from the PRO might have been considered the INDUSTRY STANDARD, but it was glitchy, had system crashes, and consumed power like a large chinese tools 10 is FINALLY a program i can use as my PRIMARY past PT programs would state, ANY ASIO INTERFACE would work, but then wouldn't work.....they got this issue fixed...and the other problem i had was LATENCY with my interface and DAW, which is also able to use my FAVORITE DAW, REASON 6.5 and create my beats then use protools to combine that, edit it, add vocals, and mix down.....the only issue i had was the impossible LEARNING CURVE, but ordered the PRO TOOLS 101 DVD, and it answered all my questions....thank you AVID for FINALLY getting it right, and for provide DAW users a product that is TRUE and HONESTLY a INDUSTRY STANDARD IN RECORDING

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 10 with Free Upgrade to Pro Tools 11:

    This program is the industry standard for Voiceovers yet I can't seem to get it to work on any of my computers. One Windows 7, One Windows 8, error after error during installation. No support for the trial version, which worries me about a full purchase. Completely incompatible with my expensive Shure USB Microphone. Nothing but problems, I would rather stick with Vegas, Mixcraft, or worst case Audacity until they can make a product that works correctly for everyone. The amount of people with the same problems with no support is amazing and discouraging.

    Comments about Avid Pro Tools 10 with Free Upgrade to Pro Tools 11:

    One issue to consider, "Plug-in Compatibility

    Pro Tools 11 supports Native and AudioSuite 64-bit AAX plug-in types only

    Earlier RTAS and AudioSuite ".dpm" plug-ins are not supported
    32-bit AAX plug-ins are not supported

    Pro Tools Plug-in Compatibility Grid

    Mac OS X & Windows: RTAS and AudioSuite (.dpm) plug-ins compatible with Pro Tools HD 9 and Pro Tools HD 10 are not compatible with Pro Tools HD 11

    Known Plug-in Issues – Pro Tools 11 on Mac OS X (Mountain Lion):

    Eleven Rack UI not available in Pro Tools 11

    Workaround: use Pro Tools 10.3.5 or higher Pro Tools 10.x version" (Avid 2013).
    If you decide to accept the free upgrade to Protools 11 you will find that your less than Native and AudioSuite 64-bit AAX plug-in types do not register or show up, and that inorder to correct that and make them workable again, you have to pay for the licence rights and then tranfer back to Protools 10 and make the original licence active again.
