What do you think? How does it sound? Is this just another carrot for me to buy PT8?

I have no idea how good HEAT sounds but, I am frankly a bit saddened by this and the direction that AVID is taking with Digidesign. My sentiments are shared by many on the DUC. I would pay twice what they are asking for Pro Tools 8 HD if it was without bugs. Instead of adding features that many users don't need and introducing new bugs and inconsistencies, they need to do a thorough rewrite of Pro Tools without adding any features.

New features don't interest me if they make the program crash. It doesn't crash for me in 7.4 so that's where I will stay until the next 'stable' version is released.

I still love Pro Tools, I just wish they had more accountability for stability and made that a priority.

Hah! If you can't handle the HEAT, stay out of the studio. – Utopia Aug 31 '10 at 20:22
