that sounds awesome

personally I want a graphic of a monitor that has the same thing as my real monitor on it only smaller. for when I feel like clicking on smaller clips.

that way I could have a big Japanese girl that acts all shy but really likes your big American beats AND a smaller Japanese girl that acts all shy but really likes your big American beats.

and when they get together... well... we've all seen how awesome vomit can be.
I'm not too crazy about vomit sex. I don't think Live would look any cooler with a vomit coloured Gui.

Anyway, different horses I s'pose. :)

I'm quite sure that's just a standard feature of the video capture software being used to make the promotion clips, graphically illustrating when a mouse button is being pressed :wink:
exactly :wink:

Live has this certain Nivea-design-factor if you ask me. The Nivea can, as you know, hasn't been changed since 1925 besides very minor adjustments. It's sold in more than 140 countries without the need to customize it to local taste.

I'll give u the benefit of the doubt by assuming that u are joking.
But just in case you are not joking, and/or haven't detected the delicate sarchasm in the last 3 pages, please see below...

Haha, you're so right on this one. =)
I wonder about this every time I see someone struggling with a fancy parameter mapping scheme that only half works as advertised.

Well they sort of changed the GUI: you can now scale it. That counts. Right?

heh, when I was watching the video, I kept thinking - man, that new clip launch indicator is really annoying. Glad it's not a new feature :)

i think visible light is stagnant. we need more colours. i think we ought to alter everyone's eyes and brains to be able to see a wider range of the electomagnetic spectrum.
