WTF
Hi Subsynth & puzzlefactory,

Our appologies for these upgrade prices displayed, this was actually a bug on our new website, which should be fixed by now.

Please refresh the upgrades page and the correct prices will be shown.

Best,

daw

This could bankrupt the company.

They will have thousands going for live 8 and the 109 upgrades.

And will probably have to honour them.

They will also probably have to lower the price of the current suite owners below that.

TROUBLE.

Yes but what's odd on the Shop page is that I can see upgrade prices for a Live Lite license I have but not when I switch to the Suite 8 license - then it just shows prices for an additional license.

I've already seen the prices on the Live page. :-)
Same thing is happening to me, I was kinda mad about it til I searched around a bit and saw the bottom of the "Live" tab

If it is a mistake they'll just have to honour the sales that have been made and can adjust the prices. It's not even a day and if it was a major problem they'd have changed something by now.

I'm still puzzled :) lol

If I have all the instruments and upgrade to the standard version I lose all my instruments?

I'm not sure those prices are still like they should.
In my case it says I can get Suite 8, box only for 34 euros. :)

it's a cheaper deal for me to sell suite 8 + session drums, buy a lesser live 8 and upgrade to suite and get L9 for free. -.-

that's just.. wrong.

I'm seeing 299 and I own suite download.

Someone mentioned that as a suite download owner you can uprgade to suite 8 box, thus qualifying you for a free suite 9, is this true? I can't find this option in the shop.

hmmm, should have waited with M4L, now it's graatizz as in free. Wich of course is very cool, but lets face it, its prolly cause of Bitwig they are so generous.

so thats live 5
update to 6 ( bought operator + sampler )
update to 7
update to 8 suite( no price diff even though i had operator + sampler as i recall )
recently invested in M4L

Somehow it seems that those that invested the most in Ableton over the years is benefiting the least with the current upgrade paths.

Of course i'm getting Live 9 and Push ( no price diff even though i have invested in M4L, and no Push price diff because i am a current Live owner? )

I know i'm just an ungrateful little bastard, but there must be lesson learned in there somewhere..is the new m4l at least 64 bit ( no not audio )?

Hey Folks,

Kinda crazy this pricing, right?!

For me, like others

Live 8 Suite + M4L ( 50e discount) => Suite 9 : 199e (648e w/ Push)

It should at least be the same as the Live 8 Suite upgrade offer (149e) or less, like 129e

That sounds perfectly fair.
Even though non-Suite customers can upgrade to Suite 9 for less?

I can't decipher the prices on the site. What price are you seeing relating to what you mention above?
Live 9 Suite | M4L | MacBook Pro Quadcore 16gb ram | APC40
