One thought on “Wanna Know What The Differences Are Between Ableton Live 8 And Live Intro?

  1. Only allows four VST's per project and DOESN'T allow any external instruments? Even at $99 it hardly seems worth it. The 7GB of sound goodies does help the sales pitch, I'll admit, but people buy ableton to attempt to make proper music, and four VST's seems kind of limited, especially for some styles.
