Installing Live 8 Standard Question


I cant seem to find the answer to my question anywhere.  

I'm currently running Live intro on my iMac and I've just ordered a Launchpad and Live 8 standard with an upgrade to 9.

I was told in the shop that the launchpad comes with a Launchpad edition of live that I can use to upgrade to Live 8 standard, then when 9 is out I can then upgrade to that.

So my question  - Will my live sets, Vst, library etc that Ive been using with Live intro load up in the launchpad edition, then 8 without any hiccups? Do I need to do anything special to get my Maudio Oxygen keyboard going?

Lastly can I simply uninstall the launchpad and Intro installations by dragging them to the trash?  I don't want to loose anything in the process of upgrading!

    there is actually no need to install the Launchpad Edition in parallel with Live Intro, as Live Intro offers more functionality. The respective upgrade pricing to Live 8 is the same.


    All of your Live Sets created in Live Intro will open fine in Live 8, provided you use the same or a higher subversion of Live 8.


    Hope this helps!
