Price Changed in "Live 8 Upgrade + Free Live 9"?

Post by needaname » Fri Oct 26, 2012 6:43 pm

Hey guys,
I've just noticed on the website that the offer "Save 25% on Ableton Live 8 + Get a Free Upgrade to Live 9" had a price change. I was going to upgrade to Live 8 Suite, the price was €179 until a few hours ago, now it says €254. Can you confirm this?

I own Live 8 Standard + Max 4 Live.

Thank You!

Yesterday I upgraded from Live 8 to Live 8 Suite (+ free Live 9 Suite). The pricing has now changed. Will I still be entitled to the free upgrade?

Send email to support@ableton.com. Nobody really knows much what is going on with Ableton's Live pricing strategy and updates... Prices change every day, listings change...

Ye I think they are going to lose a lot of Suite customers..
BTW I'm curious too about who already bought the upgrade with the previous pricing.

Why oh why did I wait? I was going to buy this Saturday morning so I could play around with it instead of being distracted on Friday when I should be working. Damn it. Lots of people pissed off about this I assume. From $200 to $300 is a big one day leap. Yes I am whining, yes I will buy it anyways. But still...

Thanx for this post. I thought I was hallucinating! I was about to upgrade but I guess they did change the price. That wasn't nice!

Yes, send email to support@ableton.com and mention that you were going to purchase the upgrade and they hiked up the original price. Mistake or no mistake, good companies honor their mistakes, bad ones not.
