Re: Is it the wrong time to get started with Live?

^ the product descriptions are what cause the confusion. EIC 2, latin percussion, paper manual, stickers, install media are the only differences (now)... he might even be eligible to download Latin Percussion too, but EIC 2 seems to only come on disk in my experience. I guess I am confused! You're ...

Re: Is it the wrong time to get started with Live?

it's been years since I downloaded Live 8 but IIRC the download has everything the box has. furthermore when you install the Library from the box you still need to update it with a download. either way, you're gonna do a download. box just adds sticker and a paper manual. and a box. with DVDs. If y...

Re: Is it the wrong time to get started with Live?

Thanks to all for the helpful advice. Several recommended going straight to Suite, and I just realized that the Suite download isn't the same as the Suite Box: http://www.ableton.com/suite-8 I gather Box adds: * Essential Instrument Collection 2 * Session Drums * Drum Machines * Latin Percussion For...

Hey, just to be sure -- my laptop display is 1366 x 768 -- I understand that won't be optimal, but I can at least work with it, yes?

So probably download the demo now, start playing and wait for the sale. Though if I get the demo now, wouldn'...

Is it the wrong time to get started with Live?

Hi all, I've been interested in Live for years, and it finally makes sense for me to go ahead and get a copy. But I'm wondering if the timing is off: 1) I gather it's almost 3.5 years since 8 was released -- does Ableton have some sort of "grace period" for a free upgrade to 9? 2) I'm running 64bit ...

Abelton Live Lite + MIDI keyboard vs. a dedicated Digital P

Hi all, I'm looking at getting a MIDI keyboard, which also comes bundled with Ableton Live Lite -- I've been thinking about getting Live anyway, so that's great.
