Just received a Max For Live 30% discount during April email. The discount code is including in the email and is also good for Max/MSP owners who want to do the crossgrade. Thank you Ableton.

Really? That's great! So you're getting for even less than $99 with the crossgrade? If so that's a smoking deal.

A deal I didn't get, btw. But do you see me bitching that you got it? :wink:

Nah think it's great that people are getting deals. What I don't get is how a forum of what you would think are a bunch of peace and love musician hipsters all of a sudden turn into greedy uber-capitalists when somebody else gets a better deal than them. :roll:

Well it seems I didn't get it today :-/

Is it a general discount code you apply when purchasing, or personal?

Pretty sure the codes are persoanalized. The deal is on till the end of April. I would give it a few days and then make an inquiry.

Not greed on my part. Just paid off my VISA card for a full license for MaxMSP. I purchase all my music software and do update purchases regularly so my software budget is sizable. I will take discounts where I can get them particularly in light of the aforementioned one.

Still no discount code here in my inbox.
I'm all ready to buy so I can start saving M4L stuff in my songs.
I don't wanna sound like a whiner, but I'm wondering how long it should take for one email to travel...

A mailing list with a couple of hundreds of thousands subscribers might take awhile to go out.
Not sure if they upgraded their system in the meanwhile, but last I heard it takes over a full day for the newsletter to go out to everybody.

Ah ok, thanks.
Wow, I had no idea it takes that long in this day and age.
I thought it'd take a few hours tops.

I'm still waiting for mine....

FYI, my newsletter + coupon code never arrived.
I contacted customer support and they sent me the code.

P.S.: Ableton are awesome: they seem to reply real quick on Twitter, and their email service is pretty fast, too!

If you run Ableton Live on a desktop and a laptop, can you install and use Max for Live on both machines with the caveat that only one machine is running the app(s) at one time, much like you can with Live?
