Re: I don't understand the pricing at all

I don't mean, "I don't understand why." I really don't get how much I'm supposed to pay to upgrade - period. I own Live 8 Download, Live 8 Suite box, and Max4Live. When I go to "Shop" and select "Live 8 Download" I'm presented the option called, "Upgrade to Suite 8 + Live 9 Suite" for $194. I alrea...

Re: New look Ableton website.

the new site looks very very strange for me on Win7 firefox. I'm not sure whether it's just the design sensibilities of the designer don't match with mine, or it's actually broken. The colours are ... not complementary. :? Is this how it is supposed to look? baby blue, 100% cyan, lilac, Windows 98 ...

Personally, I liked the old site better. I would have just made the old site more colourful - Moving around this new one is annoying LOL

Re: Live 9 Pricing

Existing Suite 8 owners will be offered an exclusive introductory discount on upgrades to Live 9 Suite, to be made available upon release. This introductory discount is not yet shown on the website, as Live 9 Suite is not yet available. We apologize for any confusion or frustration from our oversig...

Re: will you upgrade?

At 299 EUR to get from suite 8 and m4l to suite 9 I am far from certain that I will "upgrade". Price is too high. I agree, i wrote them a letter because I think this is wrong. I am quoted $299.00 to go from Live 8 Suite to Live 9 Suite. If I had Live 8 (non suite) I can upgrade to Live 9 Suite at h...

Re: Post your Live 9 upgrade path and price

I sure hope the Ableton folks are reading this forum and make appropriate corrections to this snafu.... So I have Live 8 Suite boxed version in UK. My offer to upgrade to Live suite 9 is €249. My mate sitting next to me has Live 8 standard, and his upgrade route is €149 to live suite 8 with a free ...

Write their support an email, I did. It's wrong!

Re: Post your Live 9 upgrade path and price

I have Suite 8 + M4L now ---> Suite 9 $234 So you get to upgrade for (using dollars to pounds) £145 and yet in the UK it works out (using Euros to pounds) at £160. Meh. so.. I have Suite 8 boxed + M4L and the Orchestral Instrument Collection and get to pay $334, nearly $100 more... that makes sense...

I own Live suite 8 - to upgrade it shows $299.00

I don't agree with this pricing strategy and sent Marketing an email. I think it's wrong. IMO

Re: Post your Live 9 upgrade path and price

I think they got the fx rates the wrong way round - seriously. I agree with you. So much in agreement with you that I wrote their marketing team a letter. We'll see what happens now :) I suggest everyone contact them through the support link on their page and raise some stink, it may just work for ...

Re: Ableton Live 8 Suite + Max for Live upgrade to Suite 9

I've been quoted 199 euro to upgrade to Suite 9. MY ownership of Max doesn't seem to enter into the equation. It does enter into it - Suite 8 owners who don't have M4L are being asked for 249 euros. It still sucks that Live 8 owners get to upgrade for 149 Euros though. I wrote them a letter about t...

I'll believe THAT when I see it. This is a crazy wait -- is there just one programmer left?

Re: Ableton! Will Live 9 be released before year 2015?

Do you *really* think that they are doing nothing? What do you think all those developers get paid for. Would you rather that they released something half-assed just so you can get your moment of zen before it crashes? Or do you want them to do it *right*? Do you really think that the higher-ups at...
