I purchased LIVE SUITE USD$799.00 + MAX4LIFE USD$299.00 = USD$1,098.00, for customers such as myself the upgrade to LIVE 9 SUITE should be USD$99.00. After spending USD$1,098.00 on your software I think we deserve a little break don't you think?

So you get to upgrade for (using dollars to pounds) £145 and yet in the UK it works out (using Euros to pounds) at £160. Meh.

I can't get my head around the idea that for the price of the "upgrade" I could buy Logic AND Bitwig, or Logic and a bunch of plugins, etc. :roll:
Where does it say that your existing purchases wouldn't work?

I agree with you. So much in agreement with you that I wrote their marketing team a letter. We'll see what happens now :)

I suggest everyone contact them through the support link on their page and raise some stink, it may just work for us :)

Thanks

I posted all of my details.
I have paid for everything except Corpus and Tension or some shit.
I almost have Suite by add ons, plus M4L

not sure how that makes a difference.

I have been Upgrading Live since vers 3 I think?

$239 I own 8 suite and Max. I also own the glue, but doubt I'm getting a break there. Push upgrade seems reasonable. Curious?

I'm just going to assume they still need to fix their pricing points.
But iirc they've given fresh fish advantage over current customers before.

really can't understand why the upgrade path from live 8 to suite 9 is less than from suite 8 that I have to suite 9 (also being with live for so many years now...) it seems ridiculous to me too...hope this is a glitch of the new website...

I too have Live 8 Suite & M4L, Shoot! I forgot I also have APC40 :( ...

I believe that the upgrade price for Live 8 Suite & M4L customers should be no more than USD$99. After spending all this money and supporting Ableton you would think we get a nice Christmas present from Ableton.

I'm also slightly annoyed because I spent $99 on one of the e-Instruments pianos, and $99 on Orchestral Instrument Ensembles, and now Suite 9 has a piano & a ton of orchestral stuff. Mraw.

This is what I don't understand: I own Suite 8 Boxed, Live 8, and M4L. I won the copy of Suite 8 and it is under my name. However when I click on upgrade options it states, "Upgrade to Suite 8" which is not what I want to do since I already own it. Does this make sense to anyone? Am I missing something?

I own Live suite 8 - to upgrade it shows $299.00

I don't agree with this pricing strategy and sent Marketing an email. I think it's wrong. IMO

I have purchased only the Live 8 standard download.

On the Live site it says I can upgrade to Live 9 Suite for $399 or L9 Standard for $159, but on the shop website I can upgrade to Suite 8 + Free Suite 9 for $194.
