Avid Pro Tools | Ultimate Perpetual Crossgrade to 2-Year Subscription (Retail) is for owners of a Perpetual license of Pro Tools HD9, HD10, HD11, HD12, Ultimate 2018, Ultimate 2019, Ultimate 2020, or later (Retail) who want to switch to a Subscription license. The surrender of your Perpetual license is required for Crossgrade—this is an irreversible process.
It is also available to owners of a Perpetual license of Pro Tools | Ultimate (HD9 and later) that have an expired 1-Year Software Updates and Support Plan and who want to regain access to software updates and Standard Support.
This Crossgrade to 2-Year Subscription provides access to the latest Pro Tools | Ultimate software, all software updates, ExpertPlus support, the Avid Complete Plugin Bundle (115 virtual instruments, effects, and sound processors), Heat, Celemony Melodyne essential, 1GB of Cloud Collaboration storage, 2GB high-quality loop library, plus over 3GB of bonus samples and sounds for virtual instruments—all for a period of two years.
Users who want to continue using Pro tools | Ultimate after the 2-year period ends may purchase a 1-Year Subscription Renewal before their current subscription expires (keeping the same System ID that's already in their iLok account).
If your 2-year subscription has already expired, you need to purchase a new subscription. Starting a new subscription surrenders your existing Pro tools | Ultimate license and creates a new Pro Tools System ID in your iLok account—which you will then have to move onto your iLok USB or iLok Cloud session. Once your subscription lapses, you no longer have access to Pro Tools | Ultimate unless you renew or resubscribe.
Choose to authorize Pro Tools | Ultimate either via cloud license with iLok Cloud or with a physical iLok 2 / iLok 3 key (available separately).
