I recently wrote an article for Fugitive Sounds regarding the recent announcement of Pro Tools 11. The main thrust of the article is that, while a major improvement to Pro Tools 10, it is really only catching up with features that have been available in competing DAW software for years. In the case of offline-bounce, for, like, 15 years!
The article sparked quite a discussion and I suppose your take on the recent news is, in fact, a matter of perspective. But, as a general observation, I think we software consumers need to start looking past the glitz of these Jobs-ian product roll outs and start to think critically about what exactly it is that we are paying for.
At any rate, you can see the article here: http://www.fugitivesounds.org/pro-tools-11-hrumph/
Take a look and let me know what you think.
Thanks and take care,
