    Re: Media Composer Promotions : Good thru June 30th 2017

    Is it worth getting Soundsoap?  I currently use Adobe Audition CS6.

    Hi beckirk,

    I also use Audition CS6.  I just picked up SoundSoap to have a potentially quick-fix option in my toolbox.  It choked on a 24-bit WAV ("loading" forever) that I fed it as a test, and it successfully loaded a 16-bit version of the same file.  That is all I have observed so far.

    Re: Media Composer Promotions : Good thru June 30th 2017

    Quote from the videoguys website:

    "And as a special bonus, any owner who has already purchased a Reinstatement as of April 1, 2017 will also receive the Symphony Option – absolutely free!"

    I bought a reinstatement on March 29th. Am I eligible for a free symphony option? And how would that be activated?

    Thanks

    But if you've kept up with your MC license all along you get.... ?

    I wouldn't mind getting the Symphony option for free - lol

    add - I just read their promo - if you didn't keep up you can basically get Symphony for $385 even if the last MC you purchased was MC 3.0. 

    Marianna - if you are watching this thread would you care to comment? Seems that those of us who kept up with the licensing in order to hold on to our perpetual licenses (and to avoid the $1200 renewal price tag) are getting the short end of the stick on this one. How about we get Symphony too?

    Maybe we need to start a new thread with 'FREE SYMPHONY OPTION' in the subject line to get more attention...

    Marianna?

    (Steve, we actually kept up with 4 other MC licences, its just a 5th one that got reinstated)

    Existing thread here:

    http://community.avid.com/forums/t/180990.aspx

    In short, a "reinstatement" and a "renewal" are different.  Reinstatement (the target of this promo) is for those who have lapsed/expired.  Renewal is for those who are current and are adding another year.

    In short, if you are NOT current, you can reinstate MC for a year, and add Symphony, for $399.

    If you ARE current, you can renew for $299, but to get Symphony, you must pay $799 more for Symphony.

    Personally, I think this doesn't seem like a well-thought-out promotion, but they say there may be more news soon for those who ARE current.

    Re: Media Composer Promotions : Good thru June 30th 2017

    Thanks usatraveler, I missed that thread.

    I do understand the difference between reinstatement and renewal.

    My point was: how to interpret 'any customer who has already purchased a Reinstatement as of April 1'. Does it mean before or after April 1?

    It means that anyone who bought a reinstatement plan from April 1 on - will get Symphony.
