"Apple Recommends For
Anyone who'd rather be "making music" than just "using music software" on their Mac system."

Holy crap that's a lame pitch...

holy cow...now THAT is interesting. It's even on the USA store site ($499.95). No other hosts under the "Music & Audio" category either for sale other than the obvious Logic.

hmmmmmmmmm.....maybe there is indeed some truth to that rumor.

wow, wouldn't that be something.....no more PC version of Live, if that would happen. :(

^ don't read too much into it. it's because all the other apps are for just using music.

Why would they repeat the same mistake twice?

make no mistake that this possible mistake may have been mistakenly mistook as a "Mistake", but if it's indeed a mistake...that's one helluva mistake that they are now telling us we need to stop using mixtapes and rather start making mixtapes instead of mistakenly thinking this is all one big mistake. 8)

I figure Live 9 will be announced by NAMM. I'll wait this one out. I'm okay on Live 7 right now.

Holiday special, nothing to get worked up about.

I do think Live 9 is coming sometime by second quarter 2011 and should the kind folks over at Ableton stop neglecting Live as a professional mixing tool I think it will be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

There have been two NAMMs where an announcement was expected, and yet here we are

I'm with you now, 921. After the initial excitement of the discount, I took a chill pill and realized:

a) I've got Suite covered already with a bunch of other 3rd party plugins I hardly use, so getting the native stuff will be fun for about 2 days especially if I have to fiddle with knobs (I've read the presets are...eh but a twiddlers delights). So that won't work here.....I need presets....presets baby...give me all them presets!

b) If I do a straight upgrade to the non-suite v8 now, the sale only saves me $37 from the non-discounted price....which is nothing to write home about, so I figured I'm happy with v7 as it is and will wait it out and see what v9 brings us. Meanwhile......I will continue to demo FL Studio. :wink:
