Um yes I figured that out already.[nis] wrote:Clearly a lack of time / developer resources.Ben_Binary wrote:
Why is it left up to users on this forum to write controller scripts that add the functionality for the APC40

But the bigger question is why didnt they SUPPORT Hanz in his efforts ???
I appreciate your honesty but that reality needs to be changed.
Yes but that is not what I was saying.[nis] wrote: Nevertheless I think the APC40 is a great controller and the default functionality already offers a lot of possibilities, doesn't it?
Best case scenario > The product I purchased was misrepresented to me and its planning was incompetent.
Worst case scenario > The APC40 was crippled and hanz work ignored to increasae sales of M4L & APC20.
Either way is fine with me as long as ableton is honest about it and I can learn my lesson.
Your Honesty and transperancy has and will get you pretty far in my books including my maximum ammount of tolerance plus financial and intellectual investment.
Lucky. for you guys ?[nis] wrote: Luckily there are some clever guys who took it to another level. You'll always find things that can be better and we'll surely won't be able to make everyone happy (again).
Why not make the Hanz thread a sticky?
All this free promo for some artists who use ableton but someone who actually invests time in your product and the community and he gets no support from Ableton... Thats very short sighted > dumb marketing guy sort of mistake.
Sorry you lost me here. I dont know how crazy new controller designs relate to supporting a controller script... or a simple thought about supporting (or even mentioning) clever guys who took it to another level on your website.[nis] wrote: Just look at the mockups that some people posted here. Some want a controller with 5000 buttons, 800 motorfaders, drumpads and a built-in 64-channel audio interface, whereas others just want a button matrix without faders or encoders. Some can't live without transport buttons and PAN controls, others find them rather useless.
I will show you respect by not questioning the reasons why this has not happened.
If your company cannot recognise what a valuable resource some clever guys who took it to another level are for your company you got an uphill battle against extinction... similar to traditional record labels/ business models.[nis] wrote: Anyway, what exactly do you mean by not supporting Hanz Petrov's efforts?
As I said earlier. I like Ableton. I ? Live. You are excellent and deserve respect on these forums. And I hope I am not sounding like an ableton basher/whinger etc. its just my opinion.
I hope you are in the process of 'managing'out these issues.
Im over it - as i dont entirely agree with the sentiment of this thread.
Please PM me if you wish to discuss this further.
If just one person reads all this and gets more out of their APC40 >
and ... thanks Hanz.
