have a look at the lastest beta. minimal changes - two moths old. ridiculous.
WTF are they doing?
And no info to the seemingly desperate users here. I guess that we can just keep guessing oooooorrrrrrrrr,
Not a cool move from ya!
It may be a wise move made by Ableton. As much as I'd like to see some new features or get some news about Live9, I am not looking forward to shelling out more money for a new version out of excitement only to find out it crashes all the time while waiting for updates and betas in hopes of something stable enough to work with.
Since 8.2 I have had no issues. I have no problems making tunes with Live, and I am enjoying pushing it's limits right now after the last year of ups and downs. I know some are still at their wits end with buggyness, but I bet many feel like Live 8 has stabilized for them. It's not Ableton's fault that users constantly push their machines to the edge of their performance abilities. Sure 64bit would enhance things, but my guess is it's not ready, and if thats the case I am thankful they have quit implementing things they are not ready for. Are you guys making the same complaints to computer manufactures. I mean really, if computers came standard with optic connections and cheap SSD drives, many of your sampling issues would be resolved. Latency might be reduced if everyone would jump on USB 3?
I finally quit being desperate about software releases, and Ableton are the straw that broke the camels back with that one. NI finally released an update of Reaktor after 5 years, and still no news about a new version. Companies like Adobe and Autodesk kill customers with new versions that only have major/usefull new features every now and then. I am glad to see Ableton slowing it down a bit and I hope it's because it takes time, patience, and practice to do things right, not desperation.
