You can just close and re-open Live, it will check the authorization on startup and update your Packs list.

I just bought the  Live 10 Suite to take advantage of the sale.   The Packs included in the Suite look interesting.   Question:  are Packs usable in anything other than Ableton Live?

No and you will find most of the packs are so so.  In the future you might find the Suite a waste of money.  As one who has Suite since Live 8, they added a Wavetable synth.  Their sampler and many other things have not been updated.  Those orchestral sounds are quite old.  I think Sonivox did them a long time ago.  All Live stuff is proprietary.

Thanks for the information.    That's disappointing to hear.  Well,  at least I bought it on sale!!!

 It's a great DAW.  That Suite upgrade gets expensive.  I learning Max for Live on Udemy.  That is probably worth it.

It is a great DAW, for sure.  When I first got the Live Intro it was great to play around with, but I didn't put any serious time into learning it due to its limitations.  Now that I have a full version of  Live to work with I have a steep learning curve ahead of me.   Thanks to your information I am looking more at the Max for Live and it's powerful features makes the Suite upgrade worthwhile.  The video of it shows a lot of cool stuff.  Learning it will be another part of a  steep learning curve for Live and I might go to Udemy to help me through it.  Thanks for sharing your experience.  -MF

Darn it!  Looks like the Udemy Max for Live course is on sale for the next 5 hours!  Now 13.99 vs. regular  44.99.  Hmmm.....

Get the Live ones first by the same instructor Parts 1-6 if you are not familiar with Live.

Just a reminder: by the Ableton site, this sale is set to end May 20, few days left.

 

I expect all the retailers like JRR, Thomann, Sweetwater, etc. to follow suite (badabump tchss).

 

Also, Thomann has the best prices AFAIK:

https://www.thomannmusic.com/ableton_updates_and_upgrades.html

https://www.thomannmusic.com/ableton_sequencing_software_and_virtual_studios.html

Thanks for this.  Despite my earlier round of complaints, the price at Thomann was one I could live with. I wouldn't have known about it absent your post.  I've now moved up to 10 Suite.  Happy (early) birthday to me!
