Not only did I get screwed over with share and an unstable release but now you're give away M4L for new suit owners while we only get a measly 30%

Way to go, from my favorite company and favorite software to this...

For people spending 500 euros on buying it new, it is a measly 30% off. Less if they buy the box. When other companies have offers, everyone here is all over it. Weird.

I've no problem with Ableton giving away M4L as part of a Live8 Suite promo bundle, but the 30% off thing still isn't making it worth my while. If I had an interest in actually creating patches, the original $300 would be a steal - let alone $210.

I don't want to create patches.

Funny thing, if they had offered it at 50% off, I wouldn't be posting this now. I would have bought it. I bet a LOT of people would have bought it. 50% is a great marketing number. It resonates with people right away.

30 is not the new 50.

:P
I came for the :lol:
But stayed for the :x

Amen to this.

50% off and I would have buy it in no time.
If at least we could use m4L patches as a max4Live runtime.
The only runtime I got is turning in demo mode for recording to audio fast made sequences.
What a pity for suite owners lol :mrgreen:

They should offer the people who bought Live 8 up until the time of their "bug fixing" announcement a better deal than users who join the platform once the major bugs were ironed out.....and not to release Live 9 until it's in a much more stable state of being than Live 8 was.

They should also put any plans to expand their client base on hold until Live 9 is fully debugged and getting praised 'en masse'.

to be fair, it is very easy for us to sit here and give "advise" on how to run a company to people who actually run a very successful one...

heck, why don't they just release it for free?

Until another company can actually compete with Ableton they can do whatever the fuck they want.

totally understand your anger. I hate this business model too. I will never buy a product from east west again because of this business model by the way. but that said, ableton is still really one of the "better" guys regarding this imho.

great idea, then we might stop feeling bad for beta testing Suite for 2 years

or at least have it free for Suite 9 buyers / upgraders
