Re: Upgrade prices of BIAB

David ... The difference is that there are really two subscription plans. One as you describe where you purchase and have a year of upgrades and an enhanced support plan; and, one that is a straight subscription service where you only have use during the subscription period and no residual use of the product following non-renewal.

It is worth mentioning that there are two tiers of Pro Tools software: Pro Tools Native and advanced feature Pro Tools HD, the latter which can also be run natively under some circumstances.

I just wanted to share that I've been corrected
concerning Avid's

subscription pricing mechanism -- I've heard conflicting
reports about

it, so I will share what I have most recently learned.



Apparently with ProTools and with Sibelius if you keep the
subscription

paid up each year you get the upgrades along the way. But
if you stop

paying the subscription fee at any time you can continue to
use the

program in its current state at that time but you don't
get any upgrades

or updates and there is a hefty fee to restart the
subscription again if

you choose.



So if that's the case, it's no different than most
software -- pay the

upgrade fee and you get the interim updates along the way
and the

upgrade fee each year is lower than if you skip a year or
two. Pay the

subscription fee and you get the interim updates along the
way and the

annual subscription fee is lower than what it would cost if
you skip a

year or two. I wonder why they changed the terminology
then? There has

to be some difference, but if what I was told in a private
e-mail is

true, I can't figure out what the difference is.



Graphire Music Press, a very elegant notation software, had
a true (and

quite expensive) subscription model -- you could subscribe
for a month

or a few months or a year and paid for only the amount of
time you

subscribed for. At the end of that time, you lost use of
the software

totally unless you renewed the subscription. And that
software never

flourished in the marketplace and died a quiet and lonely
death. It can

be purchased through a yahoo group but it's a very old
version and the

owner of the code won't allow it to be upgraded for
newer technologies

or processes.
