Glad to hear it from somebody other than myself
Look guys, I'm not baiting. I'm not picking a fight. I'm not saying people shouldn't be aware of this issue. I'm not suggesting that this is a fight that shouldn't be fought. I'm just trying to help. Even though it may not seem that way. Leisuremuffin is doing the same.
Its not a fanboy convention, its not having a go at the "n00bs" and its definitely not meant as disrespect.
I'm in a bit of a unique position to argue that Ableton listens and feels our pain. My feature wishlist only relates to the API anymore and recent digs in the code by some of the Live 9 beta testers reveals that half of my wishes are already there. Though Push was a first clue.
I've gotten everything I asked for and got every bug I discovered fixed, except for one. A fight that is still going on. But you won't read about it here.
While it may feel like you're fighting a company on an issue they seem to ignore you on. In reality you're fighting people who are fighting the same fight for you.
Before the metaphors get any more out of control: The people at Ableton use Live too!
Interpreter that in any way you choose. You can't possibly deny that those "users" want the same as you.
Why hasn't it been done yet? Why did they "waste" their time on improved effects?
Or the other way to look at it: "Hmm, looks like the effects got a serious upgrade. They're going full DAW on our asses."
Which brings us to PDC. Its inevitable. Its obvious that it is inevitable.
They haven't announced anything yet. They haven't hinted at it. They won't make a peep about it.
If history has taught us anything, that is a full on confirmation that they are working on it.
Here's where the fanboy starts to creep in. I can sense this is the truth, I don't need it to be confirmed. I feel it in my gut and as Colbert rightly points out, that is all that matters. Its faith.
I'm not a religious man, but I believe in Ableton. Even though I've been fighting them on a silly bug for 2 years now. They forked up everything else I wanted.
And for all the Bitwig jabs. I don't disrespect the guys working there. Dom is one of the most awesome people you could ever meet. Those 3 delay modes we got in Live 8? I "bribed" Claes for it with a box of Belgian beers. I made a point, he agreed. I made an offer, he agreed. A week later we had these 2 awesome new delay modes that didn't cause clicks. So I got much respect for Claes too.
But a 1.0 will never draw me in again, however awesome it seems.
I'm a guy who compulsory reports his bugs and am at a ninty-something percent success rate with that.
Now that Live is about as stable as I could hope for, it would be a waste of nearly a decade of working on making it work. Now all I need is Push and a longass vacation. And then GTA 5 along with another long vacation...
