Click on the Ableton Logo on the top of this page and it will take you to the Ableton Website where the current offer is upgrade and free upgrade to Live 9 when it is released, right there on the front page. This offer has been going for quite a while now. If you bought Live 8 only a few days ago (i.e. during this offer) then you are set for a free upgrade to Live 9. Was there anything in particular that was making you concerned that this might not be the case?

re: Will there ever be a Live 8 64-bit version that supports M4L devices?

Ableton have said they are working with Cycling '74 on getting a 64 bit Max for Live off the ground and flying but I'm not sure if that means Live 9 and 8?
I know they are definitely trying to address M4L in 64-bit Live 9 but...8? Why don't you ask customer support?

No -- Ableton said that 64-bit Live 9 would support M4L. I haven't seen anything about retrofitting that support into Live 8.

Does anyone know if the upgrade from Live 8 to Suite 8 is 25% off?

Yes - that's what I bought. And it includes the Live 9 Suite upgrade.

Well I'm 100% sure I paid 75% of €238.67, so if €238.67 was the full price without a 25% discount, I'm definitely 100% certain I got a 25% discount on that price. Including German VAT and a rate of 19%.

So the real question is whether I'm 100% sure €238.67 was ever the full price of the upgrade without a 25% discount - I guess I can never know as I never tried buying it before the 25% discount was offered.

Conclusion: We should have set this experiment up properly, with a control group.

They are. I got an email about it in December, and the shop page shows you what upgrade offers you're entitled to if you're logged in. Targeted advertising, innit - clever stuff.

I would think (hope) that your upgrade path recognises & takes into account your previous Operator & Sampler purchases.
The way Ableton lists its upgrade pricing can be (well, IS) confusing at the best of times, I guess it is because of the number of different add-ons you can purchase and depending on which of the 3 main software packages (Lite/Intro, Standard & Suite) to give Ableton credit, they do seem to try and take into account different individuals previous purchases, be it Max for Live or individual instruments bought etc when that individual is upgrading.
That is why you need to be logged into your Ableton account when looking at the upgrade paths/options and that is why almost everyones upgrade pricing will be different. Of course I may be mistaken but that's the best I can think of to work out what's going on.
