It was support that Ableton_David mentioned to send the email to...

"Please get in touch with customer care if you had a cart going or were going to buy, at http://ableton.com/support/contact.

Send email to support@ableton.com in case you were going to purchase the upgrade for the lower price and they suddenly increased the price behind your back.

Yep, you're right on this small part of your assumption. It was choice I couldn't avoid due to technical logistics.

If Ableton planned things better, they would've caught the error way before the original pricing went live. Instead, they rushed and burned their customers.

Is that the same as the support message system? Should I send a separate email to the one you mentioned as well?

No, just one single email to support@ableton.com. And be patient, it's a weekend just now.

So it says in my cart if I upgrade to Box Suite 8, it will give me a free upgrade to "Download" Suite 9. It does NOT say that I will get the free upgrade to "Box" Suite 9.

Does that mean I will have to pay yet more to get the Box version of 9 when it comes out?

There is no such thing as "Box" Suite 9. Going forward all additional content will be available to download, i.e. a single product to purchase.

If you scroll down to the bottom of the comparison page here:

https://www.ableton.com/en/live/feature-comparison/

There's a paragraph about 'the extras you get if you buy the box'... so I would assume there is a boxed option?

from that same page:

What comes with the download version?

A Live 9 installer to download from Your Account.
A PDF manual included with your installer.
The same included sounds as the boxed version available for download from Your Packs.

What extras do I get if I buy a box?

A DVD with your Live 9 installer
DVDs with all your included Sounds
A printed manual
Stickers

this is also how the suite 8 box was, except with suite 8 having the dvd was the only way to get eic2 or session drums - they weren't downloadable, so the d/l version was also cheaper (no licenses for those two either). now they are, and the licenses for everything comes with the d/l version.

Sure, there's a box.

Still a good question -- will the +free upgrade to Live 9 (suite) inc. the box?

I say no, don't think so, It's prolly be another $50 bucks or so for that too :?

Edit: That box is fucking gorgeous!

Great!

So if I:

1. Don't plan on getting the box set because I have no problem with downloading the Live 9 Suite Content, and
2. Don't mind waiting until 9 Suite comes out to get the full +50G of added content (Download ver of 8 Suite comes with 3 Gig)

Then it would be wisest to upgrade to the Live 8 Suite "non boxed" upgrade, get the +50 Gig of content when 9 Suite comes out, and save about $50.

Does this sound correct?

Box is a waste of resouces except in some cases. Box is ditched and users use virtual tool running on the computer. Not eco friendly.

Pretty much. Also, if you don't care about printed manuals. (maybe a few people do, most people probably don't).
