Avid has recently released Pro Tools 11, and while it has a lot of great advancements, a lot of people are concerned with some of their previous projects not being compatible. So along those lines, there are a lot of people who are hesitant to jump to the new software, while there is also the crowd who like to move to the newest gear and software as soon as they can.
Currently, there are a few good reasons to upgrade to Pro Tools 11:
-Improved performance and memory usage, due to the new Avid Audio engine and the face that 11 can access as much ram as is installed in the machine. On Pro Tools 10 and lower, the software was only capable of accessing a maximum of 4GB of RAM, with the exception of the HD10-only feature of disk caching.
