    Default Ableton sale frequency

    Hey all, so I just got an Akai APC-40 for Christmas and started playing around with Ableton Live. I'm loving it, but I'm already finding the effects and tracks limitations on the LE version to be, well, limiting.

    Want to upgrade to the full version, or maybe suite while they have that 25% off sale going on, but I'm trying to save for my weeding at the end of the year, and this is a purchase that would go on an already bulging credit card.

    My question is this: how often does Ableton do 25% off sales like that. Is this a one time thing, or am I likely to see 25% off again around Christmas next year? If they do them semi-frequently (at least once a year), I'll likely wait and just deal with the limitations until i can purchase the upgrade without a credit card, but if this is my only chance to get a discount, I might go ahead and do it.

    I think it's annual, the date being moved if they announce a big update.

    I believe it's annual as well, during Christmas time each year.

    And it's always roughly the same deal? 25% off everything including upgrade pricing?

    I'm not 100% sure, but I think it would be the same deal.

    Ahh, decisions, why can't I just have more money, that'd solve the problem.
