64-bit + OFFLINE BOUNCE. I only use Pro Tools for audio stuff and live mixing – and I’ve seen no reason to get the recent versions of Pro Tools. However, with this release, FINALLY being 64-bit and finally have offline bounce, those two things alone make it very attractive.
+1 Gareth. I am at Pro Tools 9 currently and saw no need to upgrade to PT 10, but with these features, most likely going to upgrade.
64-bit and Offline bounce are obvious amazing features, but its still not worth the money for me. 8 still works great on my machine. I only use Pro Tools to mix, and I find that the real time bounce is a great final listen to the tracks to ensure you’re happy with the mix…
Is it a free upgrade from my version 8? Ah, no…well I will pass then until I am in the top ten authors lists
I was with Pro Tools since 6.x but started sleeping around with Cubase 5 a few years back. Now I can only roll my eyes at how long it took them.
I bet you they still stifle track counts.
I love Cubase 6.5, however I still love Pro Tools. Just not Avid.
I have been a stable and happy user of PT 8, but with offline bounce and a few other goodies, like K-System metering, etc, I may just be convinced to upgrade!
What??? No offline bounce in PT until now? I’ve never used PT but no offline bounce would seriously mean HOURS of wasted time during a normal week…
