Im trying to think of a downside...
Does that mean they just switch the resources to developing a stripped down iPad version? ;)
Nothing to see here - move along!

Well considering Mac Pros are being dropped by Apple it seems like a smart move.
We wouldn't want Live to be considered in the competition for Pro DAWs right? :mrgreen:

I thought Live 9 was going to be for OS 9?
There was some sort of announcement about how if they can't make it work on modern OS's they damn well have a good chance of getting it PEFECT on one that's ten years old! Rock solid in OS 9! Just use their guidelines for extension sets! 8)

what about dropping vsts also? I still havent activated vst folder in Live 8. If they get some waves quality vintage emulation built in - who really needs battery?
They could make trasition from 8 to 9 smooth by rendering all .als files containing vst into audio in 9.

Is this for real Tarekith? I assume it's not. That would be an odd, and very unpopular move. And what's this about Apple dropping MacBook Pros? Apparently I'm either hella gullible or living in a cave. :|

Mac Pro they're considering dropping. That behemoth aluminum desktop monster they sell that nobody can justify spending the money on.
