This offer from Ableton does not require ACID users to stop usingtheir old software. "A lot of the musicians working at Ableton havebeen using versions of ACID before LIVE was released," said Rutger deGroot, commercial director at Ableton. "One thing we always hear fromthese users is that they are excited by the fact that they are now ableto bring their compositions 'to life' by rebuilding them (with the sameloops) in LIVE. In LIVE, the song can be 'played' and improvised with,rather than just being a fixed composition. Now, users can take theirsongs onstage and perform them. We know that there are a lot of ACIDusers out there who might be interested in this same experience.Therefore, we wanted to give them that opportunity and offer LIVE for aspecial price."
