I gather that means that we will have to pay for yet another version? You always will have to pay for major improvements, since they require major development work. Quality is a good thing to wish for, even better is the quality of thinking at ableton. Thanks! I'm looking forward to this redesign, ...

What you are actualy doing is closing the application, so you shouldn't be surprised then if it is exactly doing what you requested.

You can't close a set in LIVE, since LIVE without any set open doesn't make sense at all.

Hmm... am I getting your request totally wrong? Forgive me, but if you let the clip play at its 'native' (original) bpm, it is for sure warped. To have it run unsynced, I usually choose 'LOOP', 'WARP' on a clip and set one warp marker as '1' at the beginning of the first wave form and skip (if any p...

How would I keep my DVD encoder from looking at my Premiere soundtrack? It would be pretty hard to edit sound linked to video without putting the tracks in Premiere. Agreed. I'd use Magix Samplitude for synchronizing and adjusting audio with video, wich is just superiour compared to anything else w...

I always allow for as much headroom as possible when it comes to wordlentgh. In other words, raising gain on 24bit tracks and then going back to 16bit may have less impact (i.e. truncated bits) depending on the calculations used by your audio tool. Staying inside the 16bit domain throughout the proc...

I saw recent rep demos of Logic, Sonar, Cubase and Vegas Pro specifically looking at Dolby Digital 5.1 mixing. Only Logic and Vegas Pro had 5.1 'facilities', Cubase could save to 5.1 audio files but no mixing facilites, and Sonar didn't have anything. The Sonar rep. said they were waiting for the s...

Dunno, but there's already something smelly about this absolute will to be superiour and the way it is promoted.

The first one who finally owns the G5 may post a usual LIVE benchmark, and we'll compare - if we're interested.

bad reputation

It is people like you, Alternatives, who give mac users a bad reputation of being totally incompetent and ignorant and egocentric. Did you do at least a little research about what you are saying? Move over to N-I and have a look at the trouble users of Mac OS are in, move over to Steinberg, ah, move...

Simple as that: What you have in your soundfolder is not *clips*, it's the *samples* you where using for creating clips. Very important difference! So if you rename a clip, you rename a clip, not a sample, makes pretty much sense, for instance, if there's several different clips deriving from one s...

I used to think I'd need an wave editor in LIVE, I don't think so anymore. BTW it would bring up more confusion than it would save time for switching. But what I would really like to see is an option to trim clips in a self-contained set. For me this would fulfill my need for certain convenience in ...

Sample-cropping with self-contained sets

Like scene-coloring this might have already come up several times, but anyways. I usually save every set as self-contained. While I work with Samplitude too, I find a very useful option there: Save as Project (same as self-contained in LIVE) wich corresponds with Trim Objects (same as clips in LIVE)...

Scene-coloring

The coloring and naming logic of clips always occured somehow awkward to me. Anyway, today I thought, if - in the session view - all is about distinguishing different scenes, because they contain certain clips, it wouldn't be necessary to distinguish clips but the scenes with these certain clip sets...
