I logged on to the DUC forums today to see a thread regarding a certain Sweetwater employee who apparently was canned for breaking a non disclosure agreement. I'm a little out of the know here since I almost never visit that forum and the thread that got him in trouble has since been deleted. The gist of the situation is that apparently Avid has something up their sleeve that they plan on unveiling August 16th. Yup. Monday. Well at least I didn't have to wait long. What it does lead me to though is this: all the speculation regarding the dump off sale of ProTools HD systems may have been correct. Apparently there is something going to happen this Monday that will make those old HD systems obsolete! Granted, this is still speculation at this point. What if speculation was spot on though? I feel sorry for all those recent HD purchaser who within a few short months of their puchase have now a $6000 HD1 or worse that is already on the road to legacy. How typical. I want an update from Avid but I also would like to see them treat their customers with some respect as intelligent individuals. You don't have to be particularly smart to realize when you've been taken for a ride.
