In Live 8 please can we have:-

1. An event list

2. The ability for Impulse to reverse samples

3. The ability to import a groove template into the quantise menu



Thank you very much indeed. :)
Individual swing percentages on each track would be nice too.

C'mon this is the guy who made the dotted 32nd note drum patterns cool. Funny thing I remember back in 96 when I was starting out making beats I accidentally programmed a dotted 32nd note pattern in my music making program of the time, Trax and realized how horrible it sound until about several mont...

One of the most important things is to EQ the main loop. Unless you really want to sample a bassline or a kick drum part of the sample, you really need to filter out the bass in a loop if you want to add drums over it. (Makes adding kicks much easier). High Pass filters are what you want (or you can...

Drum Racks and the piano Roll FOLD button

I have one small gripe with the Drum Racks. It seems that with the Drum Racks the fold button don't work properly, the piano roll just shows all of the pads you have a sample on by default. It would be nice to be able to use the fold button for this just to show the notes which have midi note data o...

1 Double click on each drumpad on the screen (if you are using wav/aiff file samples, a simpler should pop up). 2. On the amp envelope parameter, turn the release knob all the way up. I think that should do what you want (If you are just using the drum map to play wav/aiff/rex/mp3 files). If you are...

I agree, OMF/AAF Import and export is much needed. I also wish Live could be used as a rewire master with Pro Tools. I rather use live to mix and remix songs but you have to jump through hoops bringing in each track individually. Why should Live yield to Pro Tools or any other DAW for that matter. ...

1. Revamp a good portion of the Quantize interface (mainly talking about the input quantize). Input Quantize should be more key bindable. You should also be able to input quantize at 1/32nds and 1/32(3) for that matter. 2. You should at minimum be able to apply different swing percentages to differe...

Sooner or later Live will have to rethink their copy protection. Their protection isn't much of a problem now but around 10 years later when a big percentage of their old user base (who buys every upgrade) will probably used Live on two computers. Live would either need to get someone who works week...

Re: vocal

does anyone know if i can remove everything from a song but the vocals? For most songs I'd think not if you are talking about a magic method that did this instantly and perfectly. With phase cancellation and EQ ing you can reduce the effects of other instruments (maybe to an acceptable degree you n...

There is no easy way to do this. The long way to do something like this would be to save clips of the desired quantize settings and merge the clip into the clip you want to be quantized with and move the notes to line up with the desired clip. Btw, I'm not familiar with Logic but I've just made a be...

1). Groove Quantize (something like Reason's Groove Mixer would be nice). We need to be able to Groove Quantize each track individually. 2). Refine the auto Quantize function. We want to auto quantize 1/32nds as well. All of the Auto Quantize settings should be keybindable (just like Global Quantize...
