That's how avid gets ya for life!
Yeah, that's what they did to me with Torq, the bastards.

I would take sides with U-He, Ohm Force, Ableton, and Camel Audio over Apple, NI, Waves, or Digidesign.
I'm fully with you in case of U-He (Urs is the most responsive and gentle guy running a software company I've come across so far) and Ohm Force, I can't comment on Camel Audio and would have been also fully with you in case of Ableton until 2010, but find there behaviour regarding marketing and communication questionable since then. I'm still using Live and like to work with it, but bought S1 as an Alternative and will keep an eye on Bitwig.

I dont really take sides, or feel victimized by software companies.
totally agree man, i mean, wtf? they do their best, you do your best period. Great musicians and performers find a way to get the point across, and that's it. :)

+1

Live does everything I need and is fun and relatively easy to work with. Any wishes for improvements are fairly modest... a few more midi utilities would be nice along with an LFO... Any workflow enhancements would be welcome, but the feature set is good enough for me as is...
