    I probably closed this thread a little prematurely thinking only of pirating, which is not condoned on here. You can in fact download the demo of Ableton that's good for 30 days which will give you some time to save some money. There's also a few places online like Sweetwater, ZZSounds and American Musical that all sell Ableton and offer payment plans with no credit check I believe.

    Here's the link for the Demo and sorry for jumping the gun on closing the thread.

    I think even after the 30 days you can use Ableton fine for performance; you just can't save your work (you need the full version for that). It's a really great deal for a free demo!

    Would've thought the Ableton website would be the first place to look, the upgrade from Intro to Live 8 is here:

    The launchpad comes with a slightly slimmed down version of Live 8. It's definitely enough to do quite a bit with.

    if you are a student, they do a great deal on education versions, still not free but they grant you 2 licences so maybe you and a collaborator could go 50/50 and halve the expense
