I honestly was expecting the typical 199 upgrade price which I still wouldn't have been stoked on paying. But 299? Ableton can lick my nut sack for 299

dude cycling74 are the ones primarily responsible for MaxMsp, you cant expect them to just give out a 700 software package for 200 bucks just because you were "loyal" to a different company they collaborated with. Fair would be if they hooked up current MaxMsp users, which they are.

So I go to a restaurant for years and suddenly they owe me a steak?

Here's my first Max for Live device just for you:

No, the restaurant I've been going to for years just owes me a good Ball Licking as well.
Ableton doesnt owe me shit! Never said they did. But I still am going to rightly complain about upgrade prices that are (IMO) too high. If calling me a douche makes u feel better then, right on bro

Yea I know that. But my point is that its an ADDON program. And Im sorry but imo that is a steep price for any upgrade addon. And ontop of the allready extra steep upgrade price for Live 8 alone, thats where I believe its a slap in the face.
I want that shit so bad. But Im not about to drop ANOTHER 299 on a fucking software upgrade. So Im going to complain on this public forum about it instead. haha

it's not just an addon. an addon would be 5 new instruments, or 100 new samples. this one extends what you can do with your app by a whole new flexiblity. it's not just "an addon".

that's like saying why should i pay for applications. they're just addons to my os!

there must be some amazing natural reverb in your studio. fun at first but you must've spent a fortune on bass traps.
