What to do with Live 8 Library after install Live 9???

Post by rsaulo » Wed Mar 06, 2013 6:01 pm

Hi all,

Just installed Live 9 Suite and authorized.

I had deleted the "Ableton Live 8" application from applications folder.

Now I'm downloading all the packs, but in Live now I have an "Live 8 Library" folder under Places, what is this supposed to be? I need to reinstall all the packs that I had from Live 8 right?

Thanks in advance....

Just do not undestand why need to reinstall packs like retrosynths, projectsam, etc

It's not the same packs? Or they have something new?

I'll stay for example with 2 "copies" of retrosynths that are 2GB+, one in the new packs folder and other on Library 8.

Ableton has said that the older packs have been "updated and improved" for 9, so even though the packs may have the same names, the sounds and presents may not be exactly the same. (see https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/can ... er-live-9/)

So if I have new versions of sessions drums, but projects that use patches from the old version, should I keep both versions installed?
