Once you got it did you have to send further proof to Ableton?

Either way I emailed them a photo of my student and state ID. Hope that is sufficient.

Buying Ableton with educational discount from another site..

If I buy the academic version of Live 8 from another site, will Ableton require further proof that I am a student? If so, what will they need and in which format? I just want to get everything ready ahead of time and be sure there will be no issues.

Re: start point setting is annoying

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure all you have to do is drag one of the new warp markers to where you want a track to start, then right click on it and select Set 1.1.1 Here.

Re: 8 is so much warmer sounding than 7!! AWESOME!!

You know what, maybe it is placebo effect but from the first track I imported to Live 8 it immediately sounded warmer to me too.

EDIT: By the way TIm, I don't know if you remember me but this is Nima's friend Nikos Toscani.

Re: upgrade from 8 to 8 suite

I just came here to ask the same question. Want to purchase Live 8 now and possibly Suite 8 later. Will there be an upgrade option? Please let us know when you hear back from the Abes!

Re: I think I'm gonna cave to maschine

Thinking about picking it up just to use as a drum machine/extra library within Ableton. Not sure if it's worth it though.

Syncing two computers for a DJ set?

Hey guys, my friend and I are going to be doing an Ableton DJ set together using two MacBook Pros. Is there any way to sync both machines to the same MIDI clock so that we are always beatmatched and phrasematched together? He is using Abelton 6 and I will be using version 7 (unless 8 is out by early...

Re: What mixer is best for use with Live?

I would go with either the Ecler EVO 5 (full MIDI mapping and an excellent mixer, Ecler makes quality products) or the Allen & Heath Xone: 4D.

VSTi showing up as a tiny window rather than showing GUI.

Having a problem with two VSTi specifically. Predator and Alchemy. When I open them I only see a tiny window that can not be expanded. The only thing on the window is the red X to close it. This is in Windows, I haven't tried OSX versions yet. Any ideas? Here's a screenshot: http://www.nikostoscani....

Techno, Tribal, Progressive House.

Hey guys, thought I'd share my stuff since I'm an avid user of Ableton. A lot of my tracks are different from each other. Anyway, I'll let the music do the talking.

EDIT: The Edirol M-16DX looks nice and they have released an update to use it as a control surface. Has anyone used this with Ableton?

Re: Big question

Which Mackie board were you referring to that can switch banks? How exactly does that work? That sounds like a great solution, I was just afraid because most of the control surfaces I've seen only have a few faders and some of my songs have up to 30 channels, but generally under 20. If I went the a...
