Avid hit their customers with a $1000.00 upgrade price on their audio workstation software. That is a %500 increase in the usual upgrade price range. Making their new DSP card available only on a computer that the mfg is considering doing away with. AND the DSP card cannot be used on one of the computer mfg's current machines...This has made it more practical and cost effective to jump ship and go with another Audio workstation..... So I think....lower.
