My Suite download version is an upgrade
"Suite 8 Download (Upgrade)"
plus licenses going back to 5.
What does that mean for me?

T&C says
Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8 as well as upgrades to them include a free upgrade to the respective edition of Live 9 - to be issued as soon as it is released.
How do you upgrade Suite 8, M4L? :?


Code: Select all

David, can you offer some insight as to why Ableton has decided to offer a more expensive upgrade path to Suite 9 for people that already own Suite 8 and M4L?

For Live 9 upgrade pricing, please make sure that you're logged in and head to https://www.ableton.com/en/live/new-in-9/ . See the bottom of the page for your upgrade offers.

Yes please.

The upgrade cost for current Live Suite + m4L Owners should be same (at the most) as for those upgrading to Suite 8 (with no MAX for Live!) under the special deal now. You point out m4L is now included in Live 9, we should be getting an insanely good deal, instead ours is probably the worst deal of all of them. As it stands, I'm waiting for a better deal hopefully later on.


Live is really the only DAW-product that you could run an arbitrage market on. A regular Live 8 license is worth almost $100 more than Live Suite license right now. I should have gone long on Live 8 Vanilla and shorted my Live Suite while it was still in the money. :roll:

I wrote Ableton a letter today talking about Suit 8 > Suite 9 prices being way too high.
