Anyone move from PT Ultimate to Vanilla?

Looking at some reorganizing of resources and am thinking about selling my PT Ultimate license and moving to Vanilla. I do 99% audio, no 5.1 or post work. I ended up with Ultimate as I originally had a CPTK license to get the extra track count mostly.

Anybody make the switch and have you regretted it?

If you can deal with the lower voice & track count, and you don't work with video, then the one thing you'll probably miss is the advanced automation features (Trim Mode, Preview, Latch Prime In Stop, Write To Current/All Enabled, etc.). If you don't really use those, then you'll probably be fine. I think there may be less options in the Import Session Data window as well. Is there a trial you could run to see the Vanilla feature set? Or you could rent for a month to check it out.

I could not really work without preview automation and write to all.
crtl shift drag (to selection) would also be a drag to miss.

If there are no Ultimate specific features you use, why not?
You can definitely make the same sounding mix in vanilla

I had both licenses from a multi room facility and I let my Ultimate plan expire and only keep Vanilla up to date.

I work from home now (mostly post without surround requirements) and I don't really miss it at all.
