My Pro Tools Expert colleague Russ Hughes has done an extended interview with Bobby Lombardi from Avid that you really should watch. It is over 16 minutes long but I wish this video had been around when Pro Tools 10 was launched.
Bobby explains that HD users aren’t going to abandoned that they will support the HD platform for another 3 years including bringing out fixes and updates. He also has gone a very long way to restore my confidence in Avid and that they do care about the user and especially the pro user.
If Avid had gone on camera at the Pro Tools 10 launch and explained things as Bobby has done on this video I don’t think we would have had half the problems and bitterness that has been banded about.
Also top marks to David Gould for getting the feature that came out from the Pro Tools in house ‘hackerthon’ so we could easily see where our routing is coming from and going to, a little talked about feature in Pro tools 10
If I had seen this video I am sure I would have waited to jump to HDX knowing that as an HD user I wasn’t about to be abandoned that the cross grade deals would hold and so I could have better chosen the time scale for my transition to HDX when everyone had reworked their plug-ins to AAX etc.
Russ Hughes talks to Bobby Lombardi from Avid about Pro Tools 10 development, the pain of upgrade costs and much more in this extended interview.
