Just happy that this was on sale for $499 and I could re-instate my pro tools ultimate perpetual license. I'll make sure it doesn't lapse again...

Exactly what I needed!

I work for an organization that used an old version ProTools for years without doing any upgrades. When we did a huge renovation and took down the studio I thought we would be able to continue using the same version. After renovations, the old version no longer worked because we upgraded the operations system. B&H is the only retailer I could find with copies of the license we needed to get back on track!

always reliable !

I have the mac book pro 2016, will this pro tools works on my computer? im also a student from Argentina Buenos Aires,can I buy the student version?
Asked by: Corina S.
There should be no issue running a 2016 mac book pro with this version of pro tools. The student version sold here at B&H is available only to students in U.S. accredited institutions. You may purchase a student version in Argentina nonetheless.

question

Does it Come with Ilock two or three ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Because all software packages are sealed for the consumers' protection, there is no way of knowing which iLok version is included; and AVID does not list this information explicitly. Here is some information you may find useful however. The ilok2 has been discontinued for some time now, but it is highly probable there are still software packages with the old iLok. The iLOk 3 (B&H# PAILOK3) is available for purchase separately on our site, offering smaller yet stronger housing, with the 3 times the amount of storage space.
