Do you *really* think that they are doing nothing? What do you think all those developers get paid for.

Would you rather that they released something half-assed just so you can get your moment of zen before it crashes? Or do you want them to do it *right*?

Do you really think that the higher-ups at Ableton aren't just as anxious to get a new product out the door (which coincedentally is how they make profits.. I'm not sure if u knew that) as you are?

Given Ableton's track record, they do seem to be making us wait quite a bit longer then usual.

probably the will rework it all.. deliver for christmass 2011...anounce it in frankfurt next month

it will be not just an ordinary upgrade, the will sell it as a new live..something special.. and only one version no extra suite..

the retail price for the new version will be a bit cheaper than suite before ..but the upgrade itself will be more expensiv..especially for sofar non suite users.. but also suite users pay more than before..

that all to cover for the loss of one year of the anual user licencing.. so the mean non suite user can expect around 200 for the upgrade..

that will include abltons new convolution reverb..surround support and lots of gimics from the max department the feature junky and gearslut cant miss ..and it will be totally stable and delivred with a colourcheme that dont causes snow blindness...


thats of cause all pure fiction..

Mmm bacon

As long as the bacon can be automated in a clip I would be ecstatic!

But to get real here. I used Live 4 and I made songs. I used Live 5 and I made songs. Live 6,7,8 made songs.

What do you need about that Live 8 can't do? And why can't you work around it?

I like new toys.

I do not do this professionally, I do it as a hobby. The more cool new stuff I have to play with the more entertained I am.

This in actuality sets me back in terms of getting anywhere but I am entertained.

none of that Canadian bacon, though! might as well just eat a pork chop if that's what you're after.

give me real thick-sliced Applewood-smoked bacon with a side of cheeseburger!

Yeah everybody likes new toys myself included. I am hobbyist as well.

Though I do see an issue with upgrade fever that a lot of people have. It can get in the way of work, even if that work is a hobby.

Maybe some of you remember. Some time ago ableton invited to complete the survey about controllers dedicated to Live. I am not sure if this was sent by email or available on their website, but I am sure I completed it. So anyway there were some questions about what users would like to have in such controller for Live etc. So I predict that they not only prepare new version of Live but also some ultimate super killer controller for it :). Maybe it will be some sophisticated iPad app or maybe new hardware controller surface/keyboard fully integrated with Live (unlike apc40 or launchpad which are lacking at the moment). I am keeping my money now and try to prevent gearlust and wait to see what will ableton bring to us.

It's attitudes like this that encourage the industry to give us feature heavy software that crashes. Just so you know. Did you enjoy windows vista btw..? ;)

...saying that I'm pretty sure that yes, live 9 will be released before 2015, that's plenty of time to sort out the existing bugs.
