Logic Pro

So there was a rumour last week that Apple had wiped out their pro audio team, suggesting Logic Pro was history. Whilst the rumour was quickly squashed by reliable sources, there was an interesting comment posted on the blog entry at The Loop saying "Logic will be supported. The next version will be...

Re: Live 9 Beta Slots Open NOW!!!

Closed again, was open for just over an hour. High five!!! I've literally been checking just about every hour or two every day:-) Paid off! You could have saved yourself some time and effort by using one of the website monitoring services or a utility like Simon Free to tell you when the beta sign u...

Re: Apple forgets about musicians

MBPs clock in at over 2000 USD. you can get a lot of laptops for well (3 to 7 hundred USD) under that... Lenovos included - i know, i have one. don't take my word for it though: i see roughly a 1000 dollar difference give or take 200. ironically[?], the MBPs have weaker processors. You're not compa...

Re: Sugar Bytes Helloween (sic) sale: 50% off all products

Sounds like terrible customer service. I'd think twice about checking THEM out any time soon, at least until they get their act together and treat their customers right. It was probably just a mistake on their website which they quickly corrected. Bound to be at least one person that keeps moaning ...

Re: where are the old free live pack ?

Someone pointed out in another thread that you can't access all the free packs if you're logged in to the main Ableton site. Logout and you'll get them all.

Re: Live 9 Pricing

I don't want to get stranded with an M4L that suddenly does not work with the next OS and so on and I need to upgrade using an expensive suite where the only component I need is M4L. Now, Ableton should move M4L into the basic non-suite Live, that would be awesome, get some excitement behind this L...

Re: Live 9 Pricing

For me the only reason for the suite upgrade is MaxForLive as that's not a standalone option now and I would not pay $300 for that. $99 most likely. Neither that impressed with most of the basic new Live 9 features. Sigh. Miss the good old days. M4L is still available stand alone. Click on the shop...

Re: Live 9 Pricing

According to the feature comparison its the full Orchestral packs; https://www.ableton.com/en/live/feature-comparison/ Plus it also says the download edition now includes what was in the boxed editio...

Re: Live 9 Pricing

I have live 8 suite and max4live. Apparently I can upgrade to live 9 for 129 euros without the new suite content (presumably keeping what I already have), or for 199 euros get the orchestral instruments and the other live packs they're adding. Orchestral instruments is 4 packs that used to sell for...

Re: Live 9 Pricing

exper wrote:But that's just it. The pricing has gone up significantly. See my previous post. Before this week, Standard 8 to Suite 8 Boxed was $309. Now its $469.
The pricing hasn't gone up, there was an error which has now been corrected.

The current pricing is in line with previous versions of Live.

Re: Live 9 Pricing

So yes, you are forced to pay for the m4l addition whether you want it or not. The thing that is disingenuous, is that Ableton states it as being included. Well, it is, at a further, forced premium. They should have still left it as a separate add on, and none of this would have happened. If you lo...

Re: New look Ableton website.

Think the new design and layout is pretty good and up to date. Main issue is some of the colours are out of kilter with the rest of the colour scheme (I'm looking at you turquoise). The top of the Packs page is the worst and looks like something from the 90's. No excuse for the half hearted attempt ...

Re: Price Changed in "Live 8 Upgrade + Free Live 9"?

Ableton can indeed set any pricing they want. But then they have to live with the negative repercussions with let's say customers who saw the price, went home to download it and saw the price hike. If they were to offer the lower price again then the Live 8 Suite owners would complain unless they g...

Re: Price Changed in "Live 8 Upgrade + Free Live 9"?

They placed the order during that lower price. So if you buy your milk and the shop says we will deliver it too you later and when they arrive they say pay me again you go o what I will shop somewhere else bye. It's different if they actually placed the order. In which case Ableton probably should ...
