Hey man, no disrespect. This is what Ableton (or any company) want. People to talk and be interested in the product to get word spreading. The problem is that for folks that like to drop in and out of forums like me and keep up with the new, help a few people out and generally socialise it feels like a time warp because it's like nothing ever changes.
When Bitwig was first announced it started so many threads that some days there was more threads on a SINGLE PAGE about the EXACT same things than there was ableton threads. Too many people just get too involved with what IS NOT available yet over what is right in front of them.
Jaded? Nah, just low low expectations for the human race. After all, it's now even getting too hard to do ANYTHING original. We just resort to copying what everyone else does (or direct from other sites) rather than coming up with it ourselves. Oh, and any new piece of gear is surely the answer
