Ableton Live 8, Ableton Suite, and Ableton Live LE Now Available + My Notes On Installation


Ableton Live 8 released April 2! Woo hoo! Links below. Existing users who got the “Thank You” letter in January – don’t forget to use your coupon on checkout.

I upgraded from 7 to 8 last night and while I was at it upgraded to Live 8 Suite (download edition) as the upgrade offer was just too good to pass up.

Download was for suite was 390M. I waited till later in the day so the download only took 10 minutes. I backed up then installed. Installation ran without a hitch. I installed into my existing library. One improvement on the installer is that it now automatically updates previously installed Live Packs if you install into the same library. This is a real time saver.

I already owned Ableton Sampler and Operator and they upgraded automatically.

I loaded up the set for my singles and they ran as expected.

So far so good. I know what I’m doing this weekend!!!

Here are some links on Ableton Live 8.
