You seem to have missed the whole point of it - since Ableton changed their mind we're no longer getting EDU>EDU discount prices. When owning, as in my case, Live 7 EDU, the best you can get for your hard-earned money is an education-discounted upgrade to 7 Suite (EDU) for 199€ which will give you t...

I think it is what the upgrade page (from the newsletter you might have received) says: 299€, at least for me (owning Live 7 EDU). http://www.ableton.com/nl199-live-8-upgrades
How much is that for you?

Not precisely. Quite another case. I referred to having Live 7 EDU and upgrade options going over a Suite 7 EDU upgrade which gives you a free Live 8 Suite upgrade. Word.

Exactly, that's what the guys say. There is another thread pointing out exactly this point. A guy reporting from a call to the Abes which cleared that up. If I had the chance to upgrade from 7 EDU to 8 EDU for the regular 69€ I would have been happy. So maybe choosing the whole suite then might be a...

I had similar problems in finding the appropriate prices. You won't see them on the website itself, they are hidden in the pdf you can download to order EDU upgrades and full versions. Take a leap to http://www.ableton.com/pages/education/discounts/personal and choose your country. These are the pri...

Yep, it is all about this. I phoned them to clarify the case, as I had gotten two confusing e-mails about my case. The guy on the phone talked back to whoever and came back with the info that an upgrade from Live 7 EDU to Live 7 Suite EDU would get me the free upgrade to Live 8 Suite (Download). Tha...

Hi ct43,

this mail does go into the right direction, but does not seem to indicate whether it is the same with an UPGRADE from Live 7 EDU to 7 Suite EDU. Though it seems that way...

Yes, that is what the guy on the phone told me after a little research. He came back to the phone just to confirm that. Another ringing might verify this. You'd better not write e-mails to them at the moment :) .

Well, I just phoned the Abes because I had no luck in getting satisfying answers to my e-mails. I can confirm that there are no longer discounts on upgrades from an EDU to an EDU version - it is 149€, so you don't need your student's ID, you can grab your full-full version. A way to save a little wo...

Well, you obviously got the point which is hindering - as in every DAW I have heard of, always the first preset of a VST instrument - if there is any - gets loaded. No matter what you do. What you CAN do is create a song with all your desired synths in there in the state you want new. Name the track...
