Retaining Live 8 instruments if purchasing Live 9 only.

Post by dj_blueprint » Sun Nov 04, 2012 3:08 pm

Say you purchase Live 9, the sequencer only, but you own Live 8 Suite - do those instruments just not get updated to their newest version and still get retained in Live 9?

I'd like some clarification on that.

I asked this question from support and the answer was YES, any instruments etc you have purchased for 8 will work in 9.

An Ableton rep in the pricing mega thread that verified you will get a discount (IIRC about $50, but don't quote me).
