As with Props they only charge $129 for every update. Last year I got for a limited time Sonar 4 Life for $199. Studio One always has a major sale. I think with the competition Live is being priced out of the market. I do love Live but the Suite upgrade pricing just doesn't work for me. When Izotope got some flack over their recent upgrade pricing they listened and dropped it a bit. They guys at Image Line mentioned that upgrade price is the price of some DAWs. You are not too far from getting Bitwig when they knock the price down. I guess we will have to wait for 3rd party vendors to offer sales.
