Oh hey, an update. More obscure features for Push. What a surprise.

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Well the point of the OP was not that Ableton does not introduce features. The point was that Ableton keeps ignoring (lots of valid) user requests and the missing of several basic features, while introducing features that nobody requested. Not all of them stupid or useless, of course this is not a ...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Remember when there was a mass transition from Final Cut Pro to Adobe Premiere? FCP was the industry standard but then they lost touch with their user's needs and lost huge market share to Premiere.

Live seems on target to become the new FCP. :/

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

What makes you think a lower market share means you have no customers? Profits is about making money out of your market share. What? I did not say that. You are literally making stuff up. Please go back and re-read what I said. I was merely quoting your words back to you. All I have contended is th...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Apple is thriving and market share has nothing to do with it . In fact market share never had anything to do with the success of Apple . So, to be clear, you think market share [read: having customers] has nothing to do with thriving as a company? And you think the most profitable company in the wh...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

I just put my money where my mouth is and bought BitWig. Shame. I wish Ableton would just get with the program.

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

For the longest time, users told Apple, "We want a bigger iPhone." Apple said, "No, you can only have one size," so a lot of users switched to Android phones to get larger "phablet" sized phones. Only after Apple lost market share did they listen to their users. Yes, Apple has always been about mar...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Again, to do this all Ableton needs to do is listen to their users . It's not hard. Every time Live is updated I read the new feature list and just facepalm. The company seems completely tone deaf. Like why - whyyyyy - are they redesigning Simpler, which already worked totally fine, when other way ...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

I wish that Ableton would simply listen to their users to learn what their "pain points" are when using Live and then address those problems first. For example, vocal comping is just excruciatingly tedious in Live. And recording vocals is not some obscure activity! Come on. It is a vital part of mus...

Re: Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Boss: "Hey team, thanks for coming to the meeting today. We're here to discuss the next upgrade for Ableton Live! Very exciting. Team 1, what do you got?" Team 1: "Well boss, there are two things we could work on. First, we could add a vocal comping solution." Boss: "Ok, or...?" Team 1: "Or we could...

Why does Ableton keep adding new features that no one wants?

Why does Ableton keep adding stupid, obscure features (enough with stupid Push already) while neglecting to add really basic features that other DAWs added years ago? Like, if they were building a car, they'd be adding custom rims and keyless entry but forgetting that - hello - the car is missing a ...

Re: Groove Packs - where to find/buy/download?

I know how to extract grooves and I know how to make my own. I have done both and can make them work decently. However my question, specifically, is if there is any place on the entire internet that you can buy or download them. If anyone knows of anything, I'd appreciate it.

Groove Packs - where to find/buy/download?

Anyone? I know you can extract your own but I've had limited success with that. Curious to experiment with other things besides the default groovepacks. Where can you find them?

Re: ADVANCE TAP TEMPO: LIVE TO FOLLOW LIVE DRUMMER

If Live will be contributing significantly to the mix then I wouldn't trust any software to "auto-match" the tempo. All it has to do is mess up one time and suddenly you'll have a massive train wreck on your hands. That is unacceptable at a pro level. You'll have to do what the pros do and have your...
