Sorry guys, I have to whine somewhere too
Really-really ableton, 3 years, fixed automation, (no PDC fix) and upgrade eq and compression to competitors level and asking the same price some ask for full DAWS?
Another unhappy camper here for sure.
Logic for example is going way under normal prices, I'm happy to pay a little extra for normal prices, economy doesn't run on free stuff only. But 1 thing Logic Pro got down is CLARITY. No bullshit, no 17 upgrade paths or stringing along with "special offers". 1 version, a decent library, everything included, everybody gets everything.
Come on man, I paid a good deal of money to buy L8 Suite and have EVERYTHING. You don't go around and offering me 250E for Suite or 130E for Standard? You're downgrading
customers, you don't do that!
Should have given Suite owners 1 upgrade path only for 1 price, 200 Euro by default, 40 Euro discount at launch. Suite owners remain Suite, no downgrades and hybrid Standard L9 users with Suite instruments. And I'm pretty sure net income will remain the same since people who are willing to pay 130 will probably be able to pay 200 as well to get everything, however not 250.
I will not upgrade for 1$ if automation PDC and Metering Sync is not fixed. Shame on you, ableton! Still on 8Suite Boxed (which i _never_ever_ had bought when i had known about their massive PDC issue - my printed manual from the ox still doesn't mention it - you just stated that "feature" after the bug was known, thats _so_bad_ behaviour)
