Interesting parallel to the new mac pro thread--vendor apparently concentrating their value equation on full time heavy users rather than hobbyists--seems odd to me to walk away from sales opportunities, but not my problem. I had some interest in pro tools a couple of years ago, but avoided due to the dominance of the subscription model--whatever you want to call the machinations of software companies who are seeking continuous and never ending revenue streams from products rather than initial sale and subsequent upgrade sales. Good for them to try it, my choice not to spend my money on it. I already stopped using waves due to heavy-handed moves designed to push money charging upgrades of products that work perfectly well without upgrades.

I am a hobbyist and had PT 7 back in the day, but moved on to cubase.
