will you upgrade?

Post by ian_halsall » Thu Oct 25, 2012 3:17 pm

At 299 EUR to get from suite 8 and m4l to suite 9 I am far from certain that I will "upgrade".

Price is too high.

I also own suite 8 and MFL but my upgrade says 199 Euros which still seems steep for 1 new effect (tho the updates to EQ8 and the Gate look cool). To answer your question I wont be upgrading based on the current info tho I'm sure that will change before the release date
Live 9 Suite (64 bit)
Windows 7 (64 bit)
Plugins galore
Push

Yes, no doubt. Session automation + an stand alone LFO make it worth it to me. Everything else is gravy.

+1 Yep it's too high!

I think 150 Euro from Suite8 to Suite9 I would pay, but not more.

I feel the same.

I have Suite 8, MAX for Live and their Orchestral Instrument library and it is going to cost me $334 to upgrade?

So far, I really like what I've seen of Push and it makes me glad that I didn't buy Maschine as it is ideal, but $883? really?

If Live 9 has improved quality and stability, then I'll consider coming back...

Push also seems to be "that" what really will do the thing !

...we'll see what the Lite version looks like.
No! I'll never use the Push-App Live 9 !!!

I agree, i wrote them a letter because I think this is wrong. I am quoted $299.00 to go from Live 8 Suite to Live 9 Suite.

If I had Live 8 (non suite) I can upgrade to Live 9 Suite at half that price. THAT is just wrong.

I wanna downgrade to upgrade path please :)

Write their support team a letter, I did!

Will definatly upgrade 4sho! A great introducing offer for longtime users would be nice.

The new features are really nice. I've linked all the vids on twitter here: https://twitter.com/bytechop

It seems Bitwig is offboard when Live 9 was released.

After watching all the PUSH vids a few times, I am REALLY STOKED about it.
Looks like the perfect step sequencing solution, wether thats going to hardware OR software.

Congratulations, you are the first official upgrader! A true pioneer and we are all jealous. Bastard! :D

Well, I still have to wait for the release of Live 9 obviously, but at least I now get Live 8 Suite to play with :)
