    Need to renew MC - with symphony option - is there an addtional charge?

    So I was about to renew - and saw that it is 399 with symphony option.  When I took the symphoney option last year I though it was a one time  payment.   I am looking at the menu options correctly - or do I chooese just medai compser?

     

    Thank you

    Marianna,
    That's very exciting!  Any word on what the annual renewal costs will be to keep Symphony up to date in the future?  
    thanks, Darin

    So far none....  If we do add to the app, it will most likely be in the MC itself.  If by chance we update the Symphony Option, I would expect the upgrade to be minimal but this hasnt been discussed so... I have no idea.

    Hi Darin,

    Please don't post the same question multiple times. If you're not getting a response to your question, reply to it yourself with the word "bump" to put it back at the top of the list and let people know you still need help.

    If you purchased the Symphony option, you own that forever and all you need to do is renew Media Composer.

    As far as I remember there haven't been any major changes to the Symphony option in several years. Looking at the way Avid has been updating Media Composer, and how the Symphony option has been implemented, my guess is if they make any updates to Symphony, they'll be included in a Media Composer update, and if you have the Symphony option activated, you'll see the Symphony updates. I'll ask the Avid people to respond to this thread to confirm or correct that.

    I checked your MYAvid and you already own the Symphony Option so no need to repurchase.  You would want to go with the 1 year upgrade plan.  If you have a dongle, do not go to the crossgrades as they turn the perptual license into a subscription month to month or yearly and the dongle will no longer function.

    If you need help, email me directly.
