Puremagnetik has releases RackMagnet for Ableton Live 9. They tell us that RackMagnet bridges the world's largest library of Live Packs and your Ableton production environment. Music and sound artists can now access the entire Puremagnetik catalog in a desktop application that immediately downloads content directly into Ableton Live 9.
RackMagnet is currently for OSX 10.6 and above. It requires a working internet connection, and Ableton Live 9. RackMagnet will also work fine with Live 8 but its functionality is slightly different. Here's the details from Puremagnetik...

After that, download anything in RackMagnet and it immediately shows up in Live. Inspire your session with fresh sounds in two quick steps.
