^ hey mang... i've been waiting!! - patiently, to give Ableton my money! don't rob a kid of his dreams!

and truthfully i would have stuck a sticker or two on something too... but i don't want to use them to hold the gauze on my bleeding ass.
it took me months to convince myself that i can afford this upgrade. i like the new features and wanted to support them after the Live 8 bug fest, but $308.90 just doesn't have a good ring to it. :(


look at this:
Live 9 Suite (Upgrade) For immediate download. Comes with Max for Live, 9 instruments, 40 effects and 54GB of sounds.
USD 299 discount USD 249
Contains a printed manual, installation disc, content discs and stickers. No serial numbers included. (+ USD 50.00)

Products in stock will typically be delivered in 1 to 2 work days. (+ USD 60 )

Shipping and handling.
USD 9.90

Products in stock will typically be delivered in 1 to 6 work days.

Total: USD 308.90

You save a total of USD 50.00
evil fucks.

I just bought the box.

No distracting extras such as the manual, the packs or the application. Just the box. For me it's one of the most innovative and well designed boxes in the history of DAW boxes, and I've tried lots of boxes let me tell you.
I think anyone who doesn't realise the work that goes into a box like this is just not pro. First thing I do will be just hold my box up to my ear and just ... listen.
Box. Boxiness. silent box innard.

Then, of course, I will begin complaining. I'm not fucking stupid. I have exacting standards.

:lol: "just the box"

fuck that Si! 3 more years please!

i'm going to end up caving... i'm just trying not to give in at this point. i bought a new wind shield for my car today...
guess how much it was...


249! :x

that fukin number haunts me!


the difference is that someone else delivered the package, installed it for me, then he shook my hand and thanked me for the business. paper receipt was gratuitous.

the new stickers are probably some piss poor hot dog and blue color scheme anyway.
*shrugs*

[/rant]


sorry guys. :oops:

I know you're mainly just messing around here, but the boxed version has always been $49 more roughly.

nah... no foolin... i don't remember paying that much... that kind of number would have kept me from going that route in the past.

i'm not trying to say you're wrong... but if it was the same as always i wouldn't have had an issue with it at all. maybe it was a timing thing???


tell me more...

(even though i just caved and bought it anyway :x )

50 bucks is for the employee of the retail shop. download version is always cheaper.

nope, just sitting back watching the bonobos. my music time has been all about the new guitar amp. I'm just playing, no recording, using Live 8 to play along with and learn songs. I barely even tried the beta, I haven't had the time to put an effort into it. let's see if I get screwed with bugs this time around. ;)

I'magonna wait for a sale and get Push, eventually. I absolutely LOVE those sessions where the only time I use the mouse or keyboard is to turn off the screensaver. for now I'd rather buy a Looping guitar pedal. Live upgrades are usually pretty relatively light on the wallet, not this time around.

@ pencilrocket... yep.


@ TD... lol @ bonobos... i'll be your monkey and your huckleberry as fucked as that sounds you know the drill.
congrats on the new amp... details please!
Push is pushing it too far for me... especially since i've been so stagnant lately as it relates to music. i need a constructive jam session or better yet a constructive jam partner or two.*
having said that, i can't turn my back on the possibilities of Audio to MIDI and the EQ8 upgrade.

* i hate making music alone vs. jamming

@ Si - do tell... and no joke about the wind jammer!

I just looked at my order from 2009 for the box/manual/stickers - US$44 for the privilege, so the price isn't that different. Clearly I had more money than sense back then :mrgreen:
