Fine for me, skipping along at >300kbps. But then I do live downhill from the Ableton offices, freewheeling all the way... Press the Turbo button?

Yeah, I'm getting a whopping 25-30K on a 6Mb connection. Normally, I get 700-850 K. :(

Sorry, you have my sympathy. To be serious: I don't think there's a big problem on the Ableton server's side if I can get high DL throughput, I just used the standard link and so on, no secret mirror. So, dunno what to suggest... a friend with a fat office connection? :wink:

My download stopped and remained on about 12mb for ages. I then gave up.

Surely they could avoid this bottleneck.

It's just making me hang out here and talk to you guys, so that's not so bad. But soon I'll have to cook supper. Sure hope it's done downloading before bedtime! 8O

I have no f*cking sympathy - 4.3kbps on DIALUP baby... should be down in 4.5 hours... :( In fact, why am I bothering replying to this post! Precious kilobytes are being delayed!!!

And yes I will continue to moan about this on the forum until I get hooked up with broadband...

Yeah, it's just crawling along. Too bad the abes didn't post torrent trackers for these files. We'd all be done by now :)
