How long did it take for your ableton 5 box to arrive?

I am pretty sure I am going on two weeks since I upgraded to live 5. I ordered the box and am still waiting for it to arrive. Ofcourse I have the downloaded version up and running, and I am not mad or anything like that, I just want my cool box from Germany with my stickers and manual and all..... :wink:

How long did it take for yours to arrive? I'm on the East side of the States.

For me it took 3 days if I remember correctly. 2 weeks sounds a little long unless they're sending it by submarine. Perhaps that's normal? I'm in Sweden, somewhat closer. Didn't you get a UPS package number so you can trace your box?

Good question. I don't think it would be on my e-receipt but I will double check for any info when I get home. I know for sure I have not received any kind of shipping notice.

I'm sure everything is fine, just getting to the point where I am peering up onto the front porch when I get in from work and looking out the window everytime I hear a ups truck.

UDP is in Michigan so 3 weeks sounds about right.

Shit, whad-dya-know. Guess what was sitting there waiting for me when I got home from work today.

My sexy black box.

Had an educational version sticker on the shrink wrap and educational version stamped on the manual - but that shouldn't matter? I own a full liscense and outside of the stamp on the manual its the exact same thing.

Well, I'm glad its here!

Cool, yes I do like fondling the packaging (sick!), the paper manual is very handy (when spending time in the "meditation room"

Maybe there was an error when your order was picked or they were temporarily out of regular retail? In any case, your license it's what's valuable as you know.
And of course we all have to download the patches and upgrades no matter how we bought it...
Enjoy man!
