So far you are the only one I know that went this route.

Anyone upgrade from 9 Suite to 10 Standard?

I didn't see anything updated but only added. Most 3rd party stuff is better than the synths, sampler, and sampler library. There is a $70 difference between the two. I will be holding out for a vendor deal. So who went with Standard after having the Suite? Will 9 Suite items work in 10 Standard? If...

Re: Will Wavetable come with Live Standard, or only with Suite?

The Ableton synths are nothing, nor is the core library coming with them. If you're a complete newbie these might be nice for learning, but if you know of real instruments and other software instruments then there's no way you'd prefer these. Without such preferences, dive right in. You're dead wro...

Re: Anyone else moved from FL Studio to Ableton?

Not me. I use them both since they are entirely different. Working with midi FL seems superior and part of that is the work space. With audio files there is nothing like Live. Live's upgrade pricing is ridiculous where no upgrade pricing with FL.

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

I feel being penalised for already buying Suite 9 actually offensive. I wont be upgrading or supporting this program anymore as a matter of principle. Its a shame because I have actively supported Ableton since its birth in some pretty big arenas and ok I can afford the upgrade but I totally refuse...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

FL gives you the illusion of lifetime updates but it's to the point [now] where everything is an add-on. so yeah, the base application is a one time purchase... but it's like a pay-to-play "free" video game on your phone where your mileage is limited using the vanilla app. plus, the default sounds ...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

Suite to Suite upgrade is not worth it. At $299 that's Bitwig on sale. I'll wait. I've got plenty of learning to do in 9. Eventually the market will tell if Ableton's pricing is working.

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

go make some music Please, don't be rude. thx That's ridiculous. It wasn't Sowhoso who was being rude - s/he was responding in kind to someone who was rude first. Tell them off instead. Sometimes Ableton really give the impression that they hate their customers. I think you missed the humor in that...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

It's probably why Ableton have been more focused on the composing side in upgrades lately than performance. Which I agree with you is an at some point losing battle in terms of the final parts of production, since Cubase, Reaper, Logic etc. are already far beyond where Live can get to in terms of f...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

@Stromkraft : I might be missing something but it sounds like you went through all that selling\rebuying nonsense to ultimately go from Live 9 Suite to Live 10 Standard, thereby losing access to a bunch of Instruments and Effects including the new ones in 10. I may be missing something there but 9 ...

Re: Who can play complex software synths at 64 samples?

Is anyone here able to play some of the more complex software synths, for example complex atmospheric pads in Wavetable or Analog, at 64 samples or less? (assuming sensible sample rate like 44 or 48kHz). If so, what kind of hardware do you have? I have a brand new MacBook Pro Quad Core 16GB RAM, et...

Re: Live 10 authorization impossible, coming from Beta

Got mine too. No need to clean install? It just overwrites the beta? Live never overwrites previous versions. You don`t need a clean install since it is independent from each other but it`s more foolproof to then erase the old version i have the "quicksilver" launch app and i sometimes when in a hu...

Re: Live 10 upgrade path

Add me to the list who I guess didn't pay attention, got countless EMails about buying Live 9 and then getting a free update to 10 but nothing at all registered with the discount of paying for the upgrade before the release...maybe because I've never seen that before and I own a lot of software.

Re: Ableton upgrade to live 9 will it work for 10? Cheaper!!

They should do away with the Suite and make them add ons. The orchestra sounds are never upgraded and I do believe they are the old Sonnivox libraries. Max4Live was not a wow factor for me since it is an app you have to spend more time to learn. I have too many DAWs and this one will be the most exp...

Stick with Reaper. It's very deep. Get to know it well.
