So I updated to iTunes 8.1 tonight, and I'm now unable to drag and drop tunes into Ableton Live (7.0.14). Could someone else give it a shot?

I'll cry if this is a new itunes "feature". Apple is earning place on my shitlist again.

So, who do we write an angry letter to first? Apple, for killing of a feature they probably thought was a bug, or Ableton, for not introducing a feature because they think it's a bug?

For Pete sake, maybe instead of buying the APC40 and Live 8 I'll use the money and get a VCI-100 and Traktor Pro and be done with it.

Well, that's a bit of a misstatement. Yes, I just tested it with the beta, and it does work. But it does not work with Live 7, which I'm guessing 99.X% are going to actually use to perform with. And now I can't drag crap into my set.

Odd that it works with the 8 beta and not 7. Perhaps somebody here knows why.

perhaps it's a known change with a reason apple did anounced to developers and ableton implemented it in L8 so it 'stays the same' just guessing...

No one uses the File Browser attached directly to the iTunes Library? Let's not be that lazy guys...

hmm.. you know i actually do. its the easiest way to preview tracks. especially as Live's browser offers a very poor queing of audio files from its own library.

i used to make a "record bag". just a folder with all the track i might like to play.. but everything is in such a nice order in my itunes... so i didnt see any reason to keep on doing it.

With 8.02 it is possible to drag audio to live.
Get it here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/iTunes_8_0_2_for_Mac

Huh? I hope you're not talking about Live's browser directed to your itunes library. Too hard to search for anything beyond artist and too easy to click a track and Live throws it in a track and starts warping even if it might not be what you want.

And it's easier in a live situation to be jumping back and forth between program windows?

So, lemme get this straight:

iTunes 8.1 + Live 8 Beta = Drag and drop from itunes
iTunes 8.1 + Live 7.0.14 = No drag and drop from itunes

Correct? WTF
