How Much is the Ableton Live Student Discount?
The standard student discount on Ableton products is 40% off the regular price. This discount applies to both students and teachers. Ableton offers two products that qualify for this discount.
- Ableton Live – This is the standard and popular music editing software that allows you to sample, create, produce, and perform all from the same software package. If you’re looking for an all-in-one music editing solution, Live is a great place to start.
- Ableton Push – Push is a hardware item that allows you to play your music like an instrument. It comes loaded with software and can act as a self-contained unit, or you can combine it with other instruments or software.
Who Qualifies for Ableton’s Educational Discount?
Ableton is very generous in granting it’s discount pricing to students and teachers. Those who qualify for the 40% discount include:
- Any student enrolled full-time, from elementary school up to advanced graduate programs.
- Part-time students qualify as long as they study more than half-time, which means at least 20 hours a week. Part-time students must also be enrolled in a program that runs at least 12 months.
- Almost all full and part-time teachers qualify as well. This applies to all schools from grade schools to universities. Part-time and private teachers must work at least 20 hours per week to qualify.
