Re: Live 9 on deck, when's 8.4 out of beta??

With Live 9 now right around the corner do we have any indication when 8.4 x64 will come out of beta?? Seems pretty close... I haven't installed ableton on new box yet as I'm keeping it all x64 and would prefer not to be a beta tester at this time. Me to waiting! :evil: I would think that if they a...

Re: Live 9 on deck, when's 8.4 out of beta??

So really though, we have absolutely no answers or clue as to whether or not 8.4 will come out before/with 9? Would seem pretty ridiculous that 9 hits first...

Re: New look Ableton website.

Hopefully there will be an internal review that will inform their next redesign. My bet would be, from the looks of it, the design was signed off on by Ableton at various stages and executed/delivered some time ago. Now the team has to swallow the bitter pill of user feedback reality. In order to ma...

Re: New look Ableton website.

I know there are some trolls, but for the most part a lot of the feedback in this thread was valid. Sure it gets taken into 'taking the piss' territory, but that's the nature of forums. I think it was mostly assumed that the design team was not reading this and that perhaps some Ableton mods might b...

Re: Why is there no link to the forum on the main website?

I'm worried about the sanity over there right now. Waiting for signs of rational life before I make any new purchasing decisions. :lol:

Re: Ableton main website - what happened?

The lack of a link to the forums is a criminal oversight. I routinely use the main site to navigate here. I think it's an indication that Ableton is trying to distance this forum from its corporate image. Exactly. Forums are dying everywhere, it is called "facebook effect" or something. Um, I'm not...

Re: New look Ableton website.

Responsive web design should not dictate that the site has to have the same plain vertical information flow on every browser, just that the design changes to adapt ideally at different screen boundaries. GOOD responsive design should look optimal in each use case, desktop, phone, and tablet. It does...

zactly zactly. It was that big of a debacle that it overshadows their release, not good for biz. Either one of two things; the release isn't exciting enough, or the site is THAT bad! Likely a combination of the two.

Re: Live 9 on deck, when's 8.4 out of beta??

I'm definitely not an early adopter, going to wait on 9, but a stable and FULLY working (m4l, etc) version of x64 Ableton is a must for my new box. I'm hoping we're close and all the resources don't shift to 9 without releasing 8.4 properly, hence this post.

Re: New look Ableton website.

The old site looked professional, and kinda had this cool modular look going on which sort of said "simple AND deep", something which perfectly represents Live imo, especially after the M4L marriage. Sure the new site appeals to out-of-the-box creative types in some artsy kind of way, but honestly i...

Re: Live 9 on deck, when's 8.4 out of beta??

Still, it begs the question, will 9 be released before 8.4? As a way to pressure people for a cash grab? Or will they be released concurrently? I've waited this long, Id prefer to simply install the final release since I own max for live and other add-ons, as opposed to installing a half linked beta...

Re: New look Ableton website.

... Ableton 2012: http://www.vstreview.com/wtf.jpg REALLY? :lol: This deserves a slow clap. I just made a post in the lounge about this yesterday, not having seen this thread first. Thank god I'm not alone. I thought Ableton had been bought out by some childish dictator who put his 16 year old cous...

Re: Live 9 on deck, when's 8.4 out of beta??

Seriously? No one else is curious or concerned about this? x64 was a HUGE issue, and now with the paid next full version on the horizon and no sign of completion, no one else is wondering? I'd like to try 8.4 on my x64 box before making any jumps into 9 just yet...

Ableton main website - what happened?

Wtf is up with the website? It used to be great. Now it's looking like a css 101 exercise by a student with boxes overflowing, blocky sections of hovering text, endless vertical scrolling... there's no link to the forums or all the great community resources. The site used to look and function great ...
