Where do I start Live 8? There's no related Live folder in my Applications folder anymore.

  • Live Versions: 8.3 - 8.4
  • Operating System: OSX

As of Live 8.3, the Ableton Live 8 application bundle will be installed into the Applications folder (rather than residing in a specific Live version's folder as in prior versions).

You'll now find an Ableton Live 8 launch icon on top level of your Mac's Applications folder, just as with most other Mac applications.


Should you have put a Live application launcher into your Dock before, it will still launch the previous version. Please remove the old icon from your Dock and replace it with the Ableton Live 8 launcher from the top level of your Application folder.
