Re: Ableton 25% Sale - Start the conspiracies!

Holiday special, nothing to get worked up about.

I do think Live 9 is coming sometime by second quarter 2011 and should the kind folks over at Ableton stop neglecting Live as a professional mixing tool I think it will be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Re: ----> SOLO-SAFE <----

Developers are SLACKING missing features like this. By now we all know that Ableton is the real deal, but if you ever hear a big time engineer refer to Ableton as a toy, this is your answer. The Ableton engineers have pretty much neglected innovation and simple but essential features for mixing and ...

Re: Solo Safe Mode in Live??

Welcome to the story of Ableton - Mind blowing user experience and production tools with a near disrespectful neglect for professional mixing features. I'm sure they're on it but wow, how such standard features have taken this long to implement is probably why some of these big time engineers think ...

Re: GROUP SOLO - come on guys - for 6.1 - demo song shows it

Ableton developers continue to neglect professional mixing features. It's unbelievable how the most feature rich DAW is missing such crucial features in the mixing department. It's why many still consider Live a toy because otherwise the program destroys everything else.

Dear Ableton,

Please stop neglecting professional mixing features so that it can finally become king and destroy all these other inferior DAWS.

Sequencing Machine in Ableton

So Native Instruments insist we use Maschines sequencer when we have a robust beautiful system already in Ableton. I love everything about Maschine except having to use two sequencers for no valid reason. I've seen people set it up so that you can sequence Midi Channel 1 (Group A) in Ableton by crea...

Re: Why is mapping a controller in Live so convoluted?

So stray has begun beta testing on MapEase. If I wasn't on vacation right now I'd be all over it. Convoluted? this has to be a joke. Ableton literally revolutionized controller mapping. It is hands down the simplest and most ergonomic system on ANY workstation. Seriously, it really couldn't be simp...

Re: PLEASE Eucon-ize Live!!!

Re: Euphonix users and their Live setup

You simply can't get the most out of it without Eucon which Ableton doesn't support. The most feature rich and advanced DAW on the market IMO, but missing support for the most powerful protocol. HUGE shortcoming for Live devotees.

Re: EuCon protocol for Live

Please! I very much want to fully utilize Euphonix's MC Mix and or MC Control with Ableton and I currently cannot due to Ableton's lack of EuCon support (as opposed to Mackie). Do you think this could change anytime soon? Please! p.s. Are there any potential Max for Live workaround options? Almost ...

2007 huh? It's uncharacteristic of Ableton to be lacking in features and ignoring their customers like this. I wonder if things are changing over at Ableton.

Re: Eucon & Mixing in Live - Public Service Announcement

the bussing system in Live is phenomenal and blows any other DAWS out of the water. Can you expand on this statement? In what way does it work better for you? It's just extremely simple & automatic. When you make a new aux track a little Send knob is created on every single track. In Pro Tools for ...

Re: Eucon & Mixing in Live - Public Service Announcement

(Unfortunately) I still mix in Pro Tools so I didn't buy it for Ableton. However, there is a large community of frustrated Pro Tools users that are jumping ship and leaving the program and I just wanted to let them know the definite facts of the situation. Avid advertises Ableton as supported but th...
