Upgrading to Live 9 suite on a newly reformatted desktop

Hey guys so I recently had a hard drive failure and had to install a whole new had drive. 

 

Anyways so I am planning on getting live suite 9 today, I currently own live 8 suite with a bunch of extras. 

Can I just download and install live 9 suite from the shop and it will work fine with out me installing live 8 suite or will I still be missing all my sounds and packs that came with live 8 and have to reinstall them individually?


Thanks!

    Hi Danny, 

     

    You can install Live 9 Suite right away, a prior installation of Live 9 is not required. 

    In case you also want to install Live 8 library content to use in Live 9, as the library has been revamped for Live 9, please have a read into this article:
