I'm not entirely rejecting it...

The old Pro Tools free over 10 years ago was brilliant.

The catch with this new version is you cannot save projects offline to your own hard drives.

Avid allow free users 500mg cloud storage for 3 projects at a time,
then they want to sell you more cloud storage for a monthly fee.

That's why I wont install and use it in a hurry as a primary recording Daw.

However, If it allows use of cool software instrument and FX that can be output as audio to other recording devices,
then it'll find a place in my toolbox.

There is one serious beneficial use I can think of.

Because it's cloud based, it'll allow musicians on a low budget
to each install the software, then collaborate remotely on new recordings..

Simple dodge which may be possible, each should have storage for 3 projects,
so if 4 members of a band have 3 each...... 😉
that could be useful...
