    Default Ableton Live 8 -25 % + Update for Live 9: Question about Max4Live

    Hello

    I decide to buy ableton live suite but there is something I don't understand correctly, there is actually 25% off on Ableton Live 8 Suite with Live 9 Suite Update;

    But will this package includes Max4Life too ?
    Is there any differences between buying Ableton Live 8 Suite with Live 9 Update and waiting for Live 9 to come ?

    Thanks.

    As per the comparison chart, SUITE include MaxForLive
    https://www.ableton.com/en/live/feature-comparison/

    but yeah I see what you mean, something's not clear over there. Did you tried to log into your account and add the upgrade to the shopping cart?

    EDIT: ok, the other price I didn't understand (need some sleep I guess) will be after march 4th) So yeah, the comparison chart is still valid. Quite a bargain if you ask.

    If BitWig wasn't 'round I would get it too.

    I call my Controller Dealer and he say that there was no differences between Ableton Live Suite 8 + Updates and Live 9 Suite. So I think i'll order it. Thanks for you answers i'll speak with Ableton support to be sure of this.

    You will receive Max for live with your free update to Suite 9. M4L is part of Suite 9.

    Apparently there is some difference between buying live 8 + 9update and live 9 the 5.

    Here is the E-mail I send to Ableton:

    Hello
    I want to order Ableton Live Suite and was asking myself if there was ANY DIFFERENCES between "Ableton Live 8 Suite+Update Ableton Live Suite 9" and "Ableton Live Suite 9".
    >
    So my question is:
    Apart the price and the available date is there any difference, are they exactly the same ?
    Thanks.

    Here is the Answer:
    Ableton Live 8 and 9 are different in some ways.

    First of all the structure of the Browser and Library paths has changes.

    We recommend to buy Live 8 now because the Library is bigger then Live 9´s Core Library. Live 9 instead will be bigger in Packs content.

    Live 8´s Library will be visible in the Browser of Live 9.

    See this articles in our Knowledge Base to learn more about it:
    https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/...ibrary-stored/
    https://www.ableton.com/en/articles/...presets-saved/

    See also our website to learn more about the new features of Ableton Live 9:

    If you have further questions, please feel free to get back to us at any time.
    So anybody there understand what this mean ? because .... I don't

    Pretty simple: If you buy now you are getting Suite 8, and later suite 9.

    Suite 8 and suite 9 are diffferent, 9 includes m4l and more libraries.

    What I dont know is that what happens to you Suite 8 license? You kkeep it? or it is upgraded to a suite 9 license? i suspect the later.

    I suspect you might be able to keep Suite 8 installed if you already authorized it, along Suite 9, but once you uninstall that SUite 8 it might be impossible to get it autohhorized again since now you will have only a Suite 9 license.

    You get more stuff, including absolutely everything you would get if you buy Suite 9 on March 5th, which includes Max for Live, if you buy now.

    So if i buy Ableton 8 now I'll get all the features of Ableton 9 which is coming on 5th ?

    Because:
    " Live 9 instead will be bigger in Packs content."
    Does this mean that I'll miss some of the pack included in the 5th march version or not... sorry for these questions but Google Translation isn't helping so much.

    Thanks

    It's a good deal - there are no cons that I can see.
