Re: Ableton products 33% off

wow. the entire Suite is too much if its just 60 more? :? Dear Ableton, i will buy it from you as long as you're screwing yourselves in error, but at a fair price, as advertised, i'd rather not. P.S. i will be back to bitch about your product not being 64 bit and having dual monitor support shortly...

Agreed. I had it in my cart for $116, and now it's $173, which is a bit too much for me to bite...

Re: So is 8.1.1 the one or what, is it Lives Highlander version?

I think it is the worst one yet for me. Crashes every 5 minutes. Just now, I touched the pan control for one of the tracks while it was playing, and it crashed (it also crashed when I opened the session). Earlier, it crashed when I tried to slice a Rex loop to a new MIDI track on a brand new session...

Re: * Battery 3 and Ableton 8 *

I wouldn't know, because Live 8 crashes every time I try to load Battery.

Re: Suite 8 Installation Question

I think you will be able to authorize the demo with your serial. Then you'll update files with DVD's from the box you are going to receive. I guess it's the way it's meant to work. Maybe ask to the customer care to be sure Hope I helped you a bit [I'm an all fresh Ableton 8 user_ no suite for me th...

Suite 8 Installation Question

Hey guys- Quick question for you. Today I ordered the boxed version of Suite 8 (used to have a 7 license, but I had to sell it when finances were not so good). I am also getting a new iMac today. I am nervous that I won't get Live before the weekend, and then I won't have anything to run on my shiny...

I ordered mine straight from Ableton. E-mailed them a scan of my university ID and called them a few hours later to finish the deal. Cake. .m Hmm... Interesting. My only concern is that the one I am looking is a retail boxed version, and I don't know if the requirement for academic status comes at ...

Academic Edition Question

Hey guys- Quick question for anyone using an academically acquired version (or anyone who might just know). I'm curious to know when the proof of academic status comes into play. i.e. do I provide it when I place the order, or is the check done on Ableton's side, when I go to install & authorize it?...

I'm in the same boat. My job is super boring, but is one where I have to pretend like I'm busy (also an AV job, by the way). Strong firewall, so internet usage is pretty limited, and I can't have my laptop up, so no music time... Webcomics help a lot. toothpastefordinner.com xkcd.com Otherwise, try ...

that is seriously like the best group buy pricing discount I've ever seen, and if your primary instrument isn't guitar then I don't see how you could go wrong. I went to a really nice studio about 6 months ago and I remember the owner showing it to me and he was all into it and throwing it on every...

Wow, that really is a killer deal. Anybody's opinion on how this compares to Guitar Rig? I'm not sure, but I think we saw the custom controller at NAMM that was made for Amplitube and it was stupid expensive....like $1,000 or something. Guitar Rig is perhaps a little more flexible--it's basically s...

Awesome Amplitube Group Buy at esoundz

Just wanted to make sure those who didn't know yet are aware of the group buy going round: Amplitube 2 + Amplitube JHE + Ampeg SVX UNO + X-Gear (when released) + a couple sets of extras, like patches, etc. Right now, it is at $199 for the whole bundle, but if 100 people sign up (which should happen ...

NI Audio Kontrol 1. It is so incredibly tiny, and works flawlessly all the time... at least for me, it does. 2 sets of stereo I/O, 1x1 MIDI interface.

I think it's horribly overpriced. The only way to get it for a reasonable price is to buy at a student discount, which can be tricky if you're not a student. I recently turned a friend onto Live, and I made sure to sell him before I told him how much it cost. That being said, I can't function withou...
