So this is not the new price for the up?

Because it's not a 25% off the old price of a suite upgrade from live 8, the price went up to 399 from 265.

Correct - this reflects the base price for upgrading to Suite 8. We erroneously had the wrong one listed yesterday.

Heh.

Suite 8 > Push + Suite 9 also seems to have moved up 48€

So what's that got to do with the base price of upgrading to Suite 8?

I mean if this information helps - I was looking at 649€ yesterday, now it's 698€.

Thanks for answer.
Yes - Live 9 Suite includes Max for Live.
Edited so I could quote it:
Wait now, did I read this right? If I have ableton 8 suite and upgrade to 9 suite I get M4L free? Hmmm, that wouldn't be a bad thing in of itself. Push looks VERY cool/interesting. $600 for it is is a bit outta my price range since I don't make money on my releases as of late. So justifying a cool looking controller for *fun* semni-pro usage (no live stuff) is a bit much.

MMM, No the normal price to upgrade to suite was 265 download and 300 boxed. That was the price without discount for many years. last christmas with the sale it was $176 to upgrade.

So why is now 399? 135 usd more...

It doesnt make any sense at all that now with a 25% off the upgrade is more expensive that the old no discounted price.

Ouch! I just logged in with my credit card to upgrade to 8 suit but "my price" has doubled since yesterday!!! What IS this? I was close to buying yesterday, too bad I didn't. With the doubled price I'm holding back until the mess is cleared out.

Same here. This nonsense needs to be sorted out before I shell out. Stinks of a rush job all round. :|

My upgrade price from 7 to Suite 9 went from $224 to $307 since yesterday.

My offer for Push + upgrade to Suite 9 is $948 (minus the $599 cost of the push) puts the software upgrade worth $349.

Some points for you Ableton:

1) You're not going to make owners who spent big dollars on Suite 8 + max happy about their upgrade pricing by raising the prices for everyone else.

2) You're pricing for Push with upgrades / discounts makes no sense. Why would I do that when it costs more than upgrading the software and buying the Push separately?

3) You guys have really screwed the pooch on this one.

I am absolutely not spending a dime until this is all worked out. I expect most people will feel the same way.

Question: if people paid the lower prices yesterday, are those prices being honored? Just curious, because either way sucks for someone.

@ Ableton David - if we all pay an extra dollar, a pound, a euro, whatever extra during the upgrade phase... will you change the website from nutsack color back to white?

thanks

P.S. i'll throw in another dollar for all black font again.
